SEATTLE – Health startup 98point6 has launched an on-demand primary care service to deliver personalized consultation, diagnosis and treatment by combining artificial intelligence technology with board-certified physicians to deliver care to a patient’s smartphone. Using AI technology in a mobile app, 98point6 automatically builds patient profiles and its system learns from each visit. From there, 98point6 board-certified physicians take over and engage with the patient via private and secure in-app messaging to diagnose, treat and answer any health-related questions. Patients will then receive a personalized care plan detailing their diagnosis and treatment, including prescriptions and labs, as needed. “Our mission is to make primary care accessible and affordable, inspiring early and frequent use, leading to better overall health and material cost of care savings,” said Robbie Cape, CEO and co-founder of 98point6, in a statement. “The ubiquity of smartphones, combined with consumer expectations for simple, life-changing solutions underscores the opportunity for on-demand care. 98point6 meets consumers where they are through private, text-based primary care that’s available when and where they need it.” Seattle Children’s hospital recently became a 98point6 customer and will roll out the service to their employees later this month. “98point6’s solution allows us to provide an additional layer of care that complements current health care plans and fits within our team’s busy lifestyle,” said Myra Gregorian, senior vice president and chief people officer at Seattle Children’s, in a statement. 98point6 physicians are currently seeing patients in 10 states, with plans to roll out the service to all 50 states by the end of the year.
