What We Do
The HealthLoop is a resource center created to partner with and coach patients on the latest digital consumer health technologies for managing chronic conditions.
UAB Medicine recently launched the HealthLoop, a resource center created to partner with and coach patients on the latest digital consumer health technologies for managing chronic conditions. The HealthLoop is staffed by specially trained personnel who provide patients and consumers with recommendations on the latest mobile applications and digital health technologies that will help empower them to manage their health easily and effectively. HealthLoop team members will be able to guide patients and consumers to the right solutions for monitoring their blood sugar, blood pressure, and weight, or implement a fully remote patient monitoring program, if appropriate.
Who is the HealthLoop for?
UAB Medicine created the HealthLoop for everyone to learn about new consumer digital health technologies for patients managing chronic conditions and those who wish to better manage their personal health. The resource is available for current patients, family members, and prospective patients interested in better managing their health.
Is it covered by insurance? What’s the cost?
Insurance is not required and it doesn’t cost anything to speak with a HealthLoop team member about the possible solutions that may help patients manage their condition. If a patient chooses to buy something, then the devices and digital solutions the HealthLoop provides can be purchased with a credit card.
Our doctors, nurses, health coaches, and telehealth professionals are available M-F 8a.m.-5p.m. to answer your technology inquires.
