Unite Us Background
Founded in 2013, Unite Us initially started out focusing on serving the needs of the military-connected population. The company later expanded its focus to care coordination and social services for vulnerable populations including Medicaid and Medicare beneficiaries, the homeless, justice-involved individuals and populations with behavioral health and substance use challenges.
The company helps systems and communities efficiently deliver care and services by inter-connecting providers around every patient, seamlessly integrating the social determinants of health into patient care. Providers across the service continuum can receive and send external referrals and track every patient’s total health journey while reporting on all tangible outcomes across a full range of services in a centralized, cohesive, and collaborative ecosystem. This social infrastructure helps communities move beyond legacy resource directories and transform their ability to measure impact, improve health, and track outcomes at scale.
