Exclusive: Uptiv Health, Lyn Health partner to merge infusion therapy and chronic care


Tech-enabled infusion platform Uptiv Health announced a partnership with Lyn Health, a healthcare provider for poly-chronic patients, to merge infusion therapy with chronic care management through an offering dubbed Uptiv360. 

Through the partnership, patients can undergo an onboarding process via an app, followed by an evaluation by a nurse practitioner during an infusion visit. Within 48 hours, patients are connected with a Lyn Health care team to access virtual chronic care management care, including behavioral health services.

“Lyn Health is on a mission to provide whole-person care to chronic patients across the U.S. It is without question that the intersection between chronic diseases and mental health is where we’ll find the answers to America’s healthcare crisis. If we can address mental health early, we have a shot at preventing the onset or worsening progression of chronic diseases,” Jane Himmelvo, CEO of Lyn Health, told MobiHealthNews.    

“Our partnership with Uptiv Health is addressing holistic healthcare needs for a population that traditionally has been cared for with a limited focus on physical healthcare only. UptivHealth offers the ideal setting for Lyn Health to deliver our concierge-level care to everyone.”

Via Uptiv, patients can access a multi-specialty care team that includes access to care coordination, care navigation, behavioral health and medication management services.

“Chronic infusion patients are two to three times more likely to suffer from anxiety and depression and struggle with access to behavioral health specialists. With this partnership, we’re able to seamlessly screen for behavioral health and chronic condition management issues via our patient-centric app and connect eligible patients to a professional therapist within 48 hours. This is a game-changer for infusion patients and an industry-first for the infusion market,” Torben Nielsen, CEO of Uptiv Health, told MobiHealthNews.

MARKET SNAPSHOT

Uptiv launched in August of last year with $7.5 million in funding. 

In December, the company introduced a patient engagement application where patients can communicate with their clinical team via chat and video sessions, manage appointments, perform digital check-ins and onboarding and access their medical history. 

Via Uptiv’s app, patients can also access billing and payment services, care planning and coordination, and community and caregiver services, such as adding a caregiver to their profile.

Another tech-enabled infusion company is Local Infusion, which scored $10 million in Series A funding in November. 

“Institutional Sustainability and Health System Transformation at Care New England” is scheduled for Tuesday, March 12, 12-1 p.m. ET in W208C at HIMSS24 in Orlando. Learn more and register.
