In-Person, At Home, On-Demand
MedArrive taps into a capable workforce of EMS professionals (e.g., EMTs and paramedics) so they can leverage the full scope of their training, earn supplemental income, and diversify their day-to-day responsibilities. At the same time, patients using MedArrive are able to access trusted medical expertise from the safety of their homes and within their existing health systems, ultimately resulting in better patient outcomes, a better-utilized healthcare workforce, and significant cost savings for patients and providers alike.
More Than 20k Trusted EMTs & Paramedics Nationwide
Today, MedArrive partners can tap into a dense network of more than 20k trusted EMTs and paramedics ready to be deployed across the country, with equal representation in rural and urban markets. This will be particularly critical for our partners looking to distribute flu vaccines and, when available, a COVID-19 vaccine without overwhelming health systems. Additional services include chronic condition management, transitional care, readmission prevention, urgent care, palliative care, and more. MedArrive provides the most extensive coverage for providers and payors looking to expand their impact and scale care into the home to meet the diverse needs of their patients.
This injection of capital will enable MedArrive to continue building their innovative platform, growing their team of industry experts, and driving the expansion of key healthcare provider partnerships across the country. With an initial focus on the Florida market, the team expects to expand quickly and effectively over the coming months.
“Now more than ever, as we continue battling a global pandemic, patients deserve healthcare that is accessible, affordable, and safe,” said Dan Trigub, co-founder and CEO of MedArrive. “The current pandemic has placed additional stress on our already flawed health system – patients are avoiding clinics, delaying preventative and critical care, and facing financial strain. By working alongside communities of EMS professionals, providers, and payors to bring high quality care into the home at a fraction of the cost of alternatives, MedArrive’s integrated solution is putting patients back at the center of care.”
