Harvey Health Provides Remote Access to Integrative Medicine Using Technology-Enabled Platform

Offers Affordable Video Consultations with Naturopathic Doctors, In-Home Lab Testing and Natural Treatment Plans

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- After a successful open beta, Harvey Health officially launches today, providing convenient, affordable access to integrative medicine to improve health and overall quality of life. Named after William Harvey, the physician who first discovered how blood circulates through the human body, Harvey's new telehealth platform expands the reach of integrative medicine through video consultations with licensed naturopathic doctors, advanced in-home laboratory testing and highly-customized natural treatment plans. Harvey's physicians combine conventional therapies with holistic medicine's focus on the whole body and root cause analysis, not just a set of isolated symptoms. Harvey Health provides personalized solutions to individual health issues—emphasizing diet, nutrition and a strong doctor-patient relationship. Every Harvey doctor graduated from an accredited, four-year, residential medical school, passed a national board exam and received a state medical license.

Harvey Founders Kyle Hill and Mike Townsend were inspired by the compelling personal story of co-executive Layne Thrasher, who became passionate about integrative medicine after experiencing a series of failures by conventional practitioners and medical institutions. Together they created an innovative telehealth platform that combines integrative medicine's philosophies of prevention and natural self-healing with cutting-edge, evidence-based lab testing.

"We noticed the explosive growth of telehealth coupled with the widespread adoption of complementary and alternative medicine and believe bringing them together can dramatically improve people's lives and the healthcare system as a whole," says Kyle Hill, founder and CEO of Harvey. "Our goal is simply to bring integrative medicine to the general public in a truly accessible, affordable and scientifically viable way."

"Our current healthcare system is the least efficient in the world," comments Mike Townsend, founder and COO of Harvey. "Many doctors lack the time, education and financial incentives to talk to their patients in-depth about nutrition or their long-term health. Harvey offers a refreshing and effective alternative."

"After becoming deeply immersed in health and wellness over the past decade, I'm dedicated to Harvey's mission empowering others to choose better health," adds Layne Thrasher, Harvey's VP of finance and operations. "It's rewarding to see the positive impact we're making by managing health conditions and chronic disease prevention. We use tools not otherwise accessible in what is a 'sick care' system currently instead of a true 'health care' system."

To schedule an initial hour-long video consultation with one of Harvey's licensed naturopathic doctors, new clients first create an account at goharvey.com. They then discuss their health history and current concerns with one of Harvey's multi-disciplinary doctors during the first video chat on their computer or smartphone.

If recommended during the initial consultation, Harvey mails clients a customized lab kit to collect samples from the comfort of their home. Harvey's specialty lab tests measure a wide variety of biomarkers including food allergies, hormones, micronutrients, and toxic chemicals and metals—most of which are not readily available to people through their primary care physician. If necessary, Harvey schedules a mobile technician to perform a free, in-home blood draw. After mailing back their completed lab kit, clients can review their clinical lab results with their doctor during a second video call where the doctor addresses each client's unique diagnosis and shares a personalized treatment plan—consisting of dietary adjustments, lifestyle changes and/or natural supplement recommendations.

Harvey has an affordable pricing model for this process. Each initial hour consultation is $150 and follow-up appointments start at $75. Although Harvey's services are not covered by insurance, clients may be able to use their FSA or HSA accounts for payment. By the end of October, Harvey plans to serve clients in every state except Alaska, Florida, New York, South Carolina or Tennessee.
