98point6 is the virtual care platform to help health systems meet their digital care needs now and in the future. Our 24/7 on-demand, text-based primary care meets the expectations of today’s patients while fundamentally changing the cost of care delivery. Our board-certified, employed physicians act as an extension of a health system’s provider team. We are structured to support a health system in achieving the quadruple aim: 1). Patient Experience: 98point6 opens doors to new populations that a health system has not seen before, expanding their reach and increasing access for a broader population while providing personal guidance for in-system referrals and helping patients navigate their healthcare needs. 2). Better Outcomes: Through real-time data integration with a health system’s existing solutions, we are able to share information and insights on a patient population. 3). Improved Clinician Experience: 98point6 can reduce the burden on a system’s primary care providers by managing conditions that can be handled remotely by our team of physicians. 4). Lowers Costs: By leveraging technology and optimizing the health system’s care delivery, 98point6 can play a significant role in reducing operating costs.
98point6 delivers a secure, interoperable and connected end-user experience so that patients have an established continuum of care between AVIA, 98point6 and any other benefits or providers.
98point6 enables patients to assess symptoms and concerns, addressing COVID-19 symptoms, and provides education and resources.
98point6 offers pediatric care for children who are older than 1 (>12 months) until adulthood (typically age 18 years in most states).
Care for children ages 1-17 years old must be requested by a parent or legal guardian
To request care for a child, a covered adult would begin a visit as they normally would. A list of benefit-enrolled dependents ages 1-17 will appear. They will then select who they are seeking care for, and complete the child’s profile.
Next, the Automated Assistant will gather information about the child’s symptoms, then will deliver the information to one of 98point6’s board-certified physicians. The physician will have a text-based conversation with the parent/guardian about the child’s symptoms, using audio, video or photos if clinically needed. For younger children (i.e., under age 5), the physician will be more likely to request a video encounter.

Client Integration: 98point6 is a consultative technology partner. We do more than just connect a supply of doctors to patients with demand. Working closely with the Client we can help their virtual care strategy come to life by connecting their entire ecosystem of benefits. On the same platform with which they provide digital primary care, our 98point6 physicians direct patients to in-network providers and additional benefits in-visit and in the Care Plan they receive post-visit, increasing utilization and cost-savings and ensuring patients get the right care at the right time.
In a market rich with competitor mergers and acquisitions of point solutions to expand scope of care, 98point6 is developing our product and platform to meet these patient needs through a single platform (e.g., our recently launched fully integrated behavioral health offering).
Our overarching strategy is to pair technology with employed physicians to create automated, evidence-based care pathways with additional integrations that connect patients with in-network providers and benefits at the appropriate time. Our roadmap demonstrates our commitment to maintaining high quality patient care, improving physician and patient experience and strengthening our ability to offer seamless, strategic connections to a patient’s entire suite of health resources.
