The months of living with COVID-19 have forever changed many things in our lives, including how we want to get our healthcare. That is evident by the soaring use of virtual care services, like Teladoc Health, where we can talk to a doctor 24 hours a day from our homes, our offices, or anywhere else. Many of our members and customers quickly adapted to virtual care for their medical needs during the pandemic. What started as a necessity soon became a choice because of the convenience of virtual health. Partnering with industry leading companies will continue to help us meet our members changing needs and growing expectations. Thats why we are excited to be working with Livongo, a company that helps people with chronic conditions live better and healthier lives. In August, Teladoc Health and Livongo announced a merger to create the global leader in consumer centered virtual care.
Together, they will offer some of our Florida Blue members with diabetes an enhanced end-to-end virtual care experience, all through our very own OnLife health platform. By integrating Teladocs best-in-class virtual care platform with Livongos ability to provide useful insights to members, in real time, were providing our members with a single access point for whole-person care, which will help drive better health outcomes and lower costs. And it allows members to manage their health on their own terms. This is a great example of how three critical pieces of our enterprise, our diversified businesses, GuideWell Health, and Florida Blue can come together to meet our members evolving needs in innovative ways, both during the pandemic and beyond.
