Mobile health services provider DocGo has partnered with EmblemHealth, a not-for-profit health insurer serving about three million individuals in New York City and the tri-state area.
The collaboration aims to deliver in-home healthcare services to patients in New York and Connecticut, particularly after hospitalisation, to bridge gaps in preventive healthcare.
Through this programme, DocGo will offer in-home health services to EmblemHealth’s members, focusing on value-based care.
This initiative is expected to reduce costs and minimise hospital readmissions.
Services offered through this partnership include transitional care management after hospital discharge, as well as various screenings and tests such as diabetic retinal eye exams, bone density tests, A1C screenings, blood pressure control support, and colorectal cancer screenings.
By providing these services at home, the programme aims to facilitate early disease detection and prevent unnecessary hospital admissions.

In addition to mobile health services, DocGo’s care delivery platform includes remote patient monitoring and ambulance services.
EmblemHealth CEO Karen Ignagni said: “High quality, accessible health care, remains out of reach for large segments of the population.
“By working with DocGo to offer post-acute care and critical screenings at home, our efforts to reduce health care disparities and improve health equity will be strengthened.
“We will make it easier for our members to get the preventive care they need, help them stay out of the hospital, optimise their long-term health and wellness, and help fulfil our mission of creating healthier futures for the communities we serve.”
