Walgreens is expanding its Walgreens Find Care digital health platform with 11 new collaborations and four expanded partnerships with service providers. The effort, aimed at making care easier to access during the pandemic, includes services from regional health systems and leaders in diabetes, healthcare technology, hearing, vision, at-home COVID-19 testing, screening, lab testing, mental health and more.
“Walgreens Find Care addresses even more needs during the pandemic by connecting patients to care and helping customers think differently about how their pharmacy can become a resource for more of their healthcare needs,” said Giovanni Monti, senior vice president of healthcare services at Walgreens Boots Alliance. “In addition to adding new services, with this expansion we are connecting our millions of customers nationwide to a broader mix of health systems and service providers that now offer more than 65 services and treat more than 120 conditions.”
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic nearly a year ago, Walgreens said the platform has seen more than 20 million visits — a 13-fold increase in web traffic compared with last year. The platform launched in July 2018, and has steadily added new features and service providers to connect patients with more options for convenient an affordable care from their computer and mobile devices.
New partnerships on the platform are with Abbott’s Diabetes Care business, AtlantiCare, BetterHelp, Children’s National Hospital, Clinical Reerence Laboratory, Cologuard, Hinge Health, Lexie Hearing, my Privia Virtual Clinic, Sanvello and Spine Zone. Expanded partnerships include For Eyes, Labcorp, McLaren Health Care and Novant Health.
