MINNEAPOLIS – Fairview Health Services and Zipnosis have launched a virtual protocol to prevent chronic conditions. The service allows patients to use a smartphone, computer or other web-enabled device to take a short online adaptive interview that guides them through a series of questions that adjust to their answers based on established, evidence-based medicine guidelines. If lab tests are needed, patients are provided with a ZipTicket boarding pass, which enables instant referrals to nearby lab locations. When the lab results are available, 24 to 48 hours later, a board-certified Fairview provider reviews the findings and makes a recommendation. Patients receive a summary of the findings via email, along with customized educational material. If patients are diagnosed with a chronic condition through a virtual visit and related diagnostic testing, they will need to follow up with their primary care provider or specialist. Urgent cases will be routed directly to the appropriate care setting. “The combination of virtual health screenings with laboratory access and patient education is a breakthrough that can help solve the growing problem of undiagnosed chronic disease,” said Zipnosis CEO Jon Pearce.
