Insurer to partner with telemedicine firm


Insurer Starr Cos. will be partnering with telemedicine firm Emerge Diagnostics L.L.C. to help clients offer diagnoses for injured, federally contracted employees, both companies announced Tuesday.

Carlsbad, California-based Emerge Diagnostics provides injured workers with online access to doctors and apparatus that helps gauge muscle spasms.

New York-based Starr Cos. is the worldwide marketing name for the operating insurance and travel assistance companies and subsidiaries of Starr International Co. Inc. and for the investment business of C.V. Starr & Co. Inc. and its subsidiaries, according to the company’s press release. The partnership will affect only its defense clients working with the U.S. government.

“Our partnership with Emerge Diagnostics provides us with cutting-edge technology to help reduce lost time from work, improve patient care, provide better quality of life for employees and help insureds with ADA and EEOC compliancy,” Kevin McCracken, Starr vice president, said in the press announcement.
