About Guardiant Health: Guardiant is a technology enabled medical service company using monitoring and digital telehealth capabilities integrated under a single communications platform providing an early warning and intervention system for better management of chronic medical conditions. The goal is not to replace traditional “brick and mortar” service delivery systems or family care providers but rather to fill the gap between routine visits to the physician and home where many conditions first start to worsen. Early detection of these warning signs and immediate interventions can reduce unnecessary doctor visits, trips to urgent care clinics, emergency rooms and hospital admissions. Many of these early warning signs can be treated by the Guardiant clinical team in the comfort and security of a patient’s home. The utility of this technology is self evident and has been dramatically demonstrated in the context of Covid and its health risk to seniors.
