The Last Mile of Telehealth

June 21, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic undoubtedly accelerated the adoption of telehealth services. People who had previously resisted scheduling virtual appointments with their physician were forced to do so when clinics and practices shut down to all but the sickest of patients, and leaving your home became increasingly more of a risk. The fear of contagion made virtual doctor visits a necessity. Once they experienced the convenience of telehealth, the vast majority of patients were willing to embrace it as a permanent option for getting care.

Our Partnership Philosophy

March 18, 2022
by
Nick Kirby

We are firm believers that increasing access to affordable, evidence-based care can lower overall healthcare costs and improve outcomes. Rather than focus on disruption for disruption’s sake, we’re building a services infrastructure to link the healthcare ecosystem to patients, on their terms. Our business model is designed to augment provider workforces, not replace them. We enable continuous interactions between physicians and their patients, no disjointed black box encounters. And we do this at a price point that can lower the cost of care, not increase it.
