We are a healthcare company focused exclusively on serving rural communities. We believe in the old ways of medicine when you had access to your doctor 24/7. Unfortunately, the complexity of healthcare today makes it way too difficult for most patients to navigate the healthcare system. We built this business to make it easier for rural patients to access care. We partner with rural primary care, pharmacy and urgent care partners to meet patients where they are. Becoming an extension of their current healthcare team, we provide rural residents personalized assistance with their health care needs including a dedicated local health navigator, 24/7 access to a healthcare provider, medication refills, and help navigating insurance benefits. Our interdisciplinary care team uses an integrated technology platform to coordinate and manage comprehensive, longitudinal care. Our contract model with health plans puts us at risk for the financial and quality outcomes of our patients.
