"With WearMD, doctors can now monitor patients, their activity levels and core vitals on a near real-time basis,” said WearMD Chief Medical Officer Dr. Neesheet Parikh.

WearMD Inc., formed in July 2013, provides doctors and other healthcare professionals a way to view live analysis of wearable device data and other consumer monitoring products to enable preventive care for all. Health professionals can now prescribe wearables and monitor patient data against other core vitals and critical body measurements on a daily, weekly or monthly basis to provide a real preventive care solution.

Currently, doctors see patients, prescribe tests, and make a plan of action based on the results. However, the lack of any doctor follow-up and patient accountability often results in milestones not being tracked and goals not being achieved between annual check-ups.

“With WearMD, doctors can now monitor patients, their activity levels and core vitals on a near real-time basis. The WearMD health snapshot helps to take the guesswork out of patient assessments enabling doctors to prescribe physical activity plans, dietary programs and tailor medications for patients and make immediate adjustments based on real, meaningful data,” said WearMD Chief Medical Officer Dr. Neesheet Parikh.

WearMD is a health technology service that helps physicians and patients better communicate to improve health outcomes using wearable technology. WearMD has developed an advanced preventive care technology service by a board-certified physician specializing in Sports and Family Medicine. Along with our physicians, WearMD uses licensed doctors of physical therapy, nutritionists and exercise specialists to enhance patient care.

“Dr. Parikh and I share a passion for technology and staying healthy. WearMD was born out of our desire to make it easier for anyone to live a healthier lifestyle and get the right information into the hands of their doctor to make better health care decisions,” said WearMD CEO Mark Godwin.

WearMD has developed a proprietary healthcare solution extracting data from popular consumer healthcare devices such as Fitbit, Nike Fuelband, Up by Jawbone, and iHealth home monitoring devices. By integrating the data, these devices collect seamlessly into the doctors' patient assessment arsenal, which transforms the way doctors currently practice preventive medicine.

WearMD offers patients multiple pricing options depending on the level of monitoring and care that they need. Starting at $39 per month, patients can receive monthly monitoring by a WearMD physician. There are also special programs available for patients with chronic medical issues such as, diabetes, high blood pressure, body weight, high cholesterol, heart disease, and childhood obesity, as well as lifestyle solutions for seniors.

WearMD was founded by Mark Godwin, CEO of Access Growth LLC, a full service venture support firm and Dr. Neesheet Parikh, DO Sports & Family Medicine Physician. WearMD is headquartered in Santa Clara, California.
