What You Should Know:
– Medically Home today announced a new, $110M round of funding from strategic investors including Baxter International Inc., Global Medical Response (GMR) and Cardinal Health who will each have representation on the company’s Board. Cardinal Health, Mayo Clinic and Kaiser Permanente are providing additional capital on top of their previous investments, demonstrating confidence in the growing expansion of the model nationwide.
– The Medically Home model unlocks patients’ homes as safe alternative sites to receive high and lower acuity care across the care continuum in the comfort and convenience of their homes.
– This capability is designed to increase health system capacity and resiliency while meeting the needs and wants of patients, who often prefer to be cared for at home or in a homelike setting. More than 7,000 patients have been treated using the Medically Home platform and ecosystem, as delivered by health systems across the country and utilization is expanding rapidly.
“The addition of these strategic national partners powerfully strengthens our logistics capability which our health system providers need to safely and reliably care for patients in their homes. The accelerating decentralization of high acuity care from hospitals and other institutional sites to an ever-increasing number of patient’s homes enabled by Medically Home, validates the importance of an ecosystem of health care partners working together on behalf of patients and the clinicians that care for them across the country,” said Rami Karjian, chief executive officer of Medically Home.
