Telehealth made logical sense. But it really took a global pandemic for folks to truly realize its potential. So it comes as little surprise that local telehealth startup Bright.md would be the target of a major healthcare organization. Cigna has acquired Bright.md.
Such investments by the company highlight its unwavering focus on addressing health issues holistically and diversifying the avenues through which patients get access to care. A clinical digital interview will be taken and converted into a holistic chart and the clinician can go through the responses and provide diagnosis, prescriptions and care plans accordingly.
“Ultimately, this will help patients get care faster and facilitate more meaningful patient-provider interactions that improve health,” said Dr. Eric Weil, chief medical officer at Cigna MDLIVE, in a written statement.
