COVID-19 Care Specifically Tailored
for the Patient
Orb Health is uniquely positioned to service the immediate patient needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our remote care services assist with preventing contact with COVID-19, while increasing access through telemedicine and partnering with health systems and centers. By leveraging CMS’s suite of virtual care management programs (Behavioral Health, Chronic Care Management, Remote Patient Monitoring, and Telemedicine) and COVID-19 specific workflows and protocols implemented in February 2020, Orb Health has already established an effective delivery model to engage patients at risk.
Our foundation in remote telehealth is only part of the key components needed to effectively service this patient base. As a Chronic Care Management provider, Orb Health understands how to deal with an economically and technically diverse patient-base to achieve proven results in managing long-term chronic illness, including patients who have smart phones as well as land lines, "burner phones", and phones with minimal or no data plans.
Orb Health combines stratified telehealth services with patient care coordination enabling a scalable approach that not only deals with all socioeconomic classes of patients, but also coordinates the testing, labs, doctor appointments, transportation and anything else needed to properly address any condition. This capability is far beyond simply “a doctor on the phone” that most telehealth solution provides and best meets the needs of the possibly COVID-19 infected population.
Orb Health can use the Medicare CPT 99490 and G0511 codes to provide COVID-19 response and increase reimbursements for health systems and centers that want to add both immediate Coronavirus response and long term care for this highly at-risk patient group.

Proactive Patient Outreach
Orb Health’s team uses the power of the Virtual Care Hub that is connected to the patients electronic medical record (EMR) to automatically identify and prioritize at-risk patients.Our team performs a systematic patient outreach campaign as an extension of your health system utilizing multiple methods.
COVID-19 Specific Protocols
In response to the pandemic, Orb Health added COVID-19 specific protocols and processes to it’s workflows starting in February 2020, and quickly added service capacity to deal with a large number of patient engagements.
Patients do not just receive a check-in phone call, but receive coordinated care and much more including having someone just being there as someone who helps address their fear, uncertainty, and doubt.
Increased Health System Revenue
Health systems and centers are already struggling with diminished revenues due to pre-pandemic budget squeezing. Orb Health not only provides a serious and near-immediate pandemic response, but opens the health system and center to additional reimbursements to the same patient base. Chronic Care Management, Complex CCM, Remote Patient Monitoring, and more provide multiple services that are applied at the proper time, and fully reimbursed, so you help your patients reach the best outcome potential during and after the pandemic.
Effective In-Home Care Results
Independent studies have confirmed Orb Health’s ability to produce a 54% reduction in emergency room utilization and 22% reduction in hospitalizations resulting in $6.22 mm annual Medicare savings per 1,000 patients. The same results can be replicated when applied to the COVID-19 pandemic.
