Virtual ALS & PLS care—from anywhere

Synapticure provides compassionate, personalized care for individuals and families living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis ("ALS") also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.  Our team of expert clinicians and care coordinators ensure every patient has access to the care they deserve.

Your Virtual ALS Clinic is Here

Designed by an ALS patient and caregiver to accelerate access to better treatments and improve care for every patient living with ALS, Synapticure is changing the experience for the patients we serve. Covered by most insurance and treating patients in all 50 states, our telehealth clinic works with you and your existing care team seamlessly, from the comfort of your own home (or when you’re on the road).

Dedicated ALS Specialists

Every ALS patient needs a dedicated ALS clinician in their corner. Synapticure’s neurologists come from top clinical training programs with expertise in ALS. We coordinate care with your local physicians to ensure you get the care and cutting-edge treatments you need—right when you need them. No more long wait times, no more searching for answers—we’re here to be one step ahead for you. Read more about our doctors here.

Personal Care Coordinator

As a Synapticure patient, you will be paired up with a Care Coordinator who will help you navigate every facet of the care system. Our experts have deep professional and lived experience with ALS, and are here to take the burden off of you—no matter what you need. From choosing Durable Medical Equipment like power wheelchairs, communication devices and respiratory support equipment to coordinating physical, occupational and speech therapy; and addressing other healthcare needs like a handicapped parking application, your Care Coordinator is in your corner.

Care from Anywhere

Our telemedicine platform lets you have your appointment from anywhere—right from your phone, tablet or computer. With our virtual approach, you can also easily include family and caregivers in your appointments, regardless of where they live or work. This provides family members with the ability to be more proactive in your care plan, to ask any questions they may have—even If they can’t travel to your in-person clinic appointments. Because our neurology team is licensed in all 50 states, we can also coordinate your care with your local neurologist who is not able to see you while you travel out-of-state.

Clinical Trials and Investigational Therapies

At Synapticure, we take a proactive approach to ensuring every patient is informed about clinical trials across the country. Because the time to qualify for clinical trials in ALS is limited by the date of your symptom onset—not date of diagnosis—promptly learning about your clinical trial options is critical. Your Synapticure neurologist and care coordinator will review your medical history, talk to you about your priorities, discuss the science, and overview the risk-benefits of various trials. And if you don’t qualify for clinical trials, we will talk to you about the options for Expanded Access aka Compassionate Use.

Proactive Genetic Testing & Counseling

We believe everyone with ALS should have access to genetic testing, regardless of family history or insurance coverage. On average, at least 37% of Synapticure patients were offered genetic testing by their prior physicians. Our proactive approach to genetic testing has changed outcomes for our patients. For example, genetic testing uncovered previously missed genetic variants that made several of our patients eligible for clinical trials, the Tofersen expanded access program, and the newly approved Qalsody therapy. Our care coordinators work with specialty labs to quickly ship you at-home genetic testing—at no cost. If someone in your family is a carrier of a genetic mutation causing ALS, other family members may also qualify for genetic counseling and free genetic testing.

Insurance Management & Prior Authorization

Our team understands the burdens our patients face in getting insurance coverage for the medications and equipment they need, and we ensure every Synapticure patient has rapid, expert support navigating the system. From supporting your next Open Enrollment decisions to ensuring you get rapid prior authorizations on new medications, your Synapticure team will get what you need done, quickly. Check out this blog from our medical assistant, Devin, talking about why the prior authorization process is unique in ALS.
