Meet Zerigo 2.0: Upgraded System Allows Patients to Better Manage Psoriasis and Eczema at Home

Zerigo Health is rolling out the Zerigo 2.0 ecosystem, the newest iteration of its digital health platform for the treatment and management of chronic skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis to employers, health plans, and their providers across the U.S.

The Zerigo Health ecosystem includes handheld Smart UVB Light Therapy device, Zerigo smartphone app, access to ZerigoCare Guides for personal coaching and support, and access to a network of virtual care providers for clinical assessment and ongoing continuity of care.

Using the Zerigo device, patients living with chronic psoriasis and eczema can treat themselves at home.

The integrated system uses cloud-based technology via the Zerigo App to ensure prescription light therapy dosing is automatically controlled, calculated, and personalized based on each member’s response to treatment, and that members are treated safely in accordance with their physician’s prescription. App-generated notifications alert patients of upcoming treatment sessions and help improve engagement.

“Psoriasis and eczema can substantially impair a patients’ physical health, quality of life and work productivity,” says Dr. Tina Bhutani, a dermatologist at UC San Francisco (UCSF) Health and advisor to Zerigo Health, in a news release. “Phototherapy has proven to be a safe, effective and convenient treatment for those suffering with these ongoing skin conditions.”

In addition to the device and app, patients also partner with their own personal ZerigoCare Guide. The ZerigoCare Team includes a group of RNs, MAs, and certified health and wellness coaches that patients can use as a resource. For patients who express interest in this level of support, the ZerigoCare Team provides weekly treatments, support, and encouragement, and monitors ongoing progress and results.

“Zerigo Health allows psoriasis and eczema patients to treat themselves at home without inconvenient doctor visits, topicals, pills or invasive injections. After fielding extensive patient and provider feedback, 12+ months of development and hundreds of hours spent by our expert technical team perfecting our integrated system, we are thrilled to release version 2.0 of our solution to health plans and self-insured employers alike,” says Frank D. D’Amelio, COO of Zerigo Health.

“We believe the key to lasting patient success and treatment adherence is through a 360-degree approach to care. This upgraded version of our health ecosystem is geared to empower patients with a safe, easy-to-use device, app and support from ZerigoCare Guides to help them feel more in control of their condition and confident in their skin.”

The Zerigo Health ‘2.0’ ecosystem includes:

Increased data capabilities to analyze patient adherence to treatment, monitor treatment dosage, and observe skin clearance progress.

  • Optimizations to the Zerigo device LED light that enable the treatment of twice the body surface area in half the treatment time, relative to previous device designs.
