In 2014, childhood friends Scott Schnell and Neil Solomon, MD, first discussed an emerging frontier in health care — telemedicine. Given their awareness of a rapidly aging population, rising health care costs and a looming shortage of homecare providers in our country, Scott and Neil recognized an opportunity to step in and make a difference. Soon after, they co-founded MedZed, a telehealth company focused on the delivery of quality health care directly to the homes of patients with complex medical and social needs. As Scott explains it, “We founded MedZed with a mission to address the needs of high-risk members who cannot easily visit their medical providers, thereby making them more prone to both frequent emergency room visits and hospital readmissions.”
Our members slip through the cracks of the traditional delivery system. They don’t regularly go to the doctor, whether due to lack of transportation, lack of trust, or language and cultural barriers. They may have access to some social services, but those are fragmented and not integrated with their medical needs. Now, more than ever, we need to provide care for them, delivered at home. These members are often hard to find and while health plans spend substantial resources on these members, outreach efforts typically fall short.
MedZed offers an end-to-end solution designed specifically for high-need populations and partners with managed Medicare and Medicaid entities.
