“Our HIPAA-compliant platform enables patients to access personalized, high-touch telemedicine services and consult with specialized physicians. Right now, our core services are very useful for patients and providers, because they reduce the risks of coronavirus exposure,” said Anders Boman, Founder and CEO of Because Health. “Our new Workplace Health service leverages our telemedicine platform to meet the critical need of providing on-site coronavirus testing and after-care workplace health protocols. We make things simple and safe so that businesses can reopen with employee and customer confidence during this difficult time.”
Because Health was founded by the son of a physician and a nurse-midwife, Anders Boman, in order to make advanced, comprehensive care available to a wide audience. While Anders has a business background in healthcare, he has been most inspired by his father, Dr. Lars Boman, and the outcomes achieved by his patients. After two decades of performing major surgery in traditional healthcare environments, Dr. Boman transitioned to preventive medicine. Twelve years and 48 state licenses later, Dr. Boman uses an integrative, whole health approach to guide the clinical services provided by Because Health.
“Our biggest priorities are to provide accurate, accessible testing while supporting businesses with guidance about COVID-19 policies for workplace screening, prevention, and communication,” stated Dr. Lars Boman, Medical Director of Because Health. “We offer comprehensive yet easy-to-understand medical guidance and prevention tips for minimizing risk of coronavirus introduction in the workplace. It’s about providing guidelines to help businesses, employees, and customers reduce their risk of infection as we reopen the economy.”
