"We are very excited to work with Priority Health and make Brook an available resource to the member community during this time of need," said Oren Nissim, CEO, Brook. "Brook was built on the idea that each of us deserves to be empowered to own our health, our experts are there to make that process easier by taking the guesswork out of managing a chronic condition. People love the Brook service for its immediate response and the ability to have an open, honest chat with a Health expert that ultimately gives them the tools to make smarter decisions on their own terms."

To help people adjust to the new normal the country is settling into due to COVID-19, Brook has developed specific channels for members to communicate with health experts about staying healthy at home and taking more ownership over daily health management. While Brook health experts can support members with chronic conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure, the app also allows users to create a custom Care Circle, where someone can connect and collaborate with other Brook users and health experts on issues or topics that are important to them.

Before expanding capabilities for COVID-19, Brook was developed to assist people suffering from chronic conditions including diabetes and hypertension. Some of the ways in which Brook supports those members is through providing personalized plans for staying fit, eating healthy, managing stress, cooking and avoiding excess snacking.
