Medarrive creates a seamless connection between healthcare providers and patients by using emergency medical professionals. They strive to bring care to patients regardless of their income or transportation needs.
MedArrive’s new healthcare experience is focused on convenience, reliability, safety, and humanity. It leverages a team of providers who act as a link between patients and physicians. They provide medical support in the comfort of the patient’s own home, saving them time and money in emergency room visits. According to MedArrive, a typical ER visit can cost $2000. A readmission ER visit costs typically $14 400 a visit, and a visit to the ER with a chronic condition typically costs $16 000. The average MedArrive visit totals at $200, a fraction of hospital costs.
To book an appointment, a payor, provider, or patient can request a visit where urgent care, complex condition monitoring, medication administration, and more can be provided. A skilled and licensed paramedic will be dispatched, or an appointment can be scheduled within 48 hours. Once the in-home care arrives, the healthcare professional will perform services with the patient’s physician providing oversight via telehealth when necessary. The company uses an ET3 model: triage, treat, and transport.
Using MedArrive can serve as a healthcare provider’s extension into their patient’s homes and gain valuable insight into lifestyle or environmental factors that impact the person. Care teams can partner with MedArrive – When patients receive healthcare in their home, their medical records can be updated and shared, and clinical data can be reported with electronic health records.
“Recently, we wrote about Heal, a similar home visiting service led by doctors: Heal makes it possible for a primary care doctor or paediatrician to see a patient within the comfort of their home, which in itself is insightful for the doctor. Practically, there are operational efficiencies of running solely a home visiting service, rather than having a doctor in a clinic and the same doctor also doing home visits.” – Dr Vinay Shankar
Amongst the distribution efforts of the Covid-19 vaccine, some people don’t have transportation to a vaccine site, or some have found themselves in ‘vaccine deserts’, where they do not live near a site. To combat this, MedArrive can administer the Covid-19 vaccine and ensure that both doses are provided in the patient’s home.
