YEC member company Medicast, the world's only mobile-first and logistics and management platform for on-demand care deliery, is being acquired by Providence St. Joseph Health, the 3rd largest non-profit health system and one of the top innovative health organizations in the country.
Led by YEC member Nafis Zebarjadi, Medicast helps hospitals and health systems modernize their care delivery networks with sophisticated, easy-to-use technology that has been designed in collaboration with patients and physicians. As Providence continues to move healthcare into the digital age, the Medicast platform will be a key component of a wider strategy to ensure that more patients can have access to convenient, compassionate care, delivered both in-person and virtually.
Says Zebarjadi, "Over time, we realized the importance of working more closely with health systems and collaborating with them as a means of launching innovative at-home care services that would be powered by the Medicast platform, but offered under a health system's brand and provided by its own caregivers. We learned that healthcare experiences should not be purely transactional, but that house calls should be a part of a broader continuum of care."
