What problem do you solve?
Only 23% of healthcare consumers are active and satisfied with their available options today. For the other 77%, cost concerns and lack of convenience prevent timely and appropriate healthcare, resulting in avoidable, costly urgent care and ER visits and impacting early detection. Unfortunately, the trends driving this reality show no signs of letting up. High deductible health plans are growing in prevalence, increasing the healthcare cost burden for consumers. At the same time, the on-demand economy is picking up speed, growing consumers’ appetite for more convenient healthcare options. Consumers want low-cost, quality, on-demand healthcare, yet the current healthcare model does not meet this expectation.
