Byram Healthcare was founded in 1968 and (as of 2017) is owned by Owens & Minor, a global healthcare services company that seeks to close the gap between healthcare professionals and individuals in their home. Byram Healthcare delivers healthcare products and services, and specifically offers a wide selection of diabetes supplies that can be ordered online and shipped directly to you.
Byram’s inventory of diabetes products includes the latest technology in the industry, designed to help you manage your diabetes and understand your glucose levels. With over 50 available products, Byram Healthcare hopes to be your one-stop shop for diabetes care.
The company sells all of the following products, and multiple versions/brands of many of them:
These products come from an array of well-known brands, including the following:
We found Byram Healthcare’s product filter feature to be easy to use and superior to that of some of its competitors. You can filter by product, brand, manufacturer, or feature on the company’s website, and you can clearly see all the options and how many products are nested in each filter without having to do any searching or navigating from page to page.
To better help you or your loved one better understand a diabetes diagnosis, Byram Healthcare has dedicated a page of its website to answering a lot of common questions about the disease and educating you about relevant facts and key terms.
This section of the website also includes helpful information like healthy goals and target blood pressures to aim for, the amount of exercise people with diabetes should do weekly, the value of annual eye exams for those with diabetes, and much more. If you are new to the world of diabetes care, this page could be a great resource to you.
Byram Healthcare offers a number of continuing education courses that are meant for nurses, case managers, social workers, certified diabetes educators, and registered dieticians. These courses consist of one hour of continuing education credit, and when applicable, you can receive certificates for more than one profession or credit, in more than one state.
As far as courses specifically related to diabetes care, Byram Healthcare offers all of the following:
Quite a few Byram Healthcare customers have complained about slow response times and general lack of helpfulness on the part of Byram’s customer service team. They have said that the company doesn’t have a sense of urgency, and some have complained that they’ve gone weeks without necessary supplies because they couldn’t get in touch with anyone at Byram.
While Byram Healthcare has a robust product line and a nice filtering system on its website, the company does not actually provide any prices on its site. If you want to know how much things actually cost, you’ll have to request that information by filling out a contact form and listing your questions about pricing in a short paragraph.
This is somewhat of a hassle, and Byram could be more transparent with its pricing to make it easier on customers to compare pricing with other diabetes supply companies. Unfortunately, we are unable to say whether Byram is more or less affordable than its competitors.
