– Founded in 2016, TailorMed is focused on ensuring patients get the care they need in a difficult financial environment. TailorMed’s best-in-class platform automates the process of identifying financially at-risk patients, matching and enrolling them in financial resources such as: co-pay assistance, replacement drug programs, government subsidies, community and state resources, assistance from disease-specific foundations, and programs that support patients with their living expenses.

For its health system customers, TailorMed shifts financial assistance from reactive matching or collections to a proactive approach of addressing financial needs at the point of care.
