Virtual preventive care

Combine wellness screenings with virtual care checkups from Catapult Health® to improve employee health

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many people did not complete needed routine screenings and chronic disease monitoring. In fact, hemoglobin A1c monitoring for those with type 2 diabetes fell by 66%, and newly identified cancer patients fell by 46%.1,2 Combining routine biometric screenings with virtual care checkups enable employees to continue comprehensive routine and preventive care from home.

Quest Diagnostics collaborates with Catapult Health VirtualCheckup™

With VirtualCheckups from Catapult Health, individuals meet with a Nurse Practitioner to discuss their Personal Health Report based on Quest screening insights. Each VirtualCheckup includes:

  • Real-time video call with a Nurse Practitioner
  • Administration of the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) to screen for depression and other mental health risks
  • SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) symptom and exposure screen
  • Discussion of family health history, needed screenings based on age and demographics, and medication review
  • No copay for the participant, and can be billed through claims for most health plans

Wellness screenings + virtual care: How it works

Participants schedule a biometric screening using one of the screening options detailed below. After receiving their results, individuals then schedule a VirtualCheckup to discuss insights gained from their screening with a Nurse Practitioner and be connected to the appropriate follow-up care available within the benefit plan.

Biometric screening + virtual care options

With At-home self-collection for biometric screenings, participants:

  • Receive self-collection materials in the mail
  • Complete an easy fingerstick collection
  • Ship sample back to Quest for processing
  • Schedule a VirtualCheckup to receive a virtual preventive care consultation with a Nurse Practitioner

When completing a screening at a Patient Service Center (PSC), participants:

  • Schedule an appointment at one of Quest’s 2,250 nationwide PSCs
  • Visit the PSC for a venipuncture blood draw
  • Schedule a VirtualCheckup to receive a virtual preventive care consultation with a Nurse Practitioner

When completing a screening at an on-site event, participants:

  • Attend a work site event and complete either a fingerstick or venipuncture blood draw*
  • Complete a VirtualCheckup at the work site (for point of care testing) or schedule a VirtualCheckup to receive a virtual preventive care consultation with a Nurse Practitioner

What happens in a virtual care checkup?

Participants complete a private, virtual consultation with a Nurse Practitioner through Catapult Health’s secure, proprietary video platform. All sessions include a discussion about screening results, family health history, and a medication review. Each individual will receive a Personal Action Plan that can include referral into other employer-sponsored well-being and benefits programs.
