MedArrive as a new care management platform that enables healthcare providers and payers to extend services into the home.

The startup bridges the virtual care gap by integrating physician-led telemedicine with hands-on care from a network of trusted EMS professionals, improving patient outcomes while empowering an underutilized segment of healthcare workers, according to the company.
 
Backed by Redesign Health, MedArrive banked a $4.5 million seed round co-led by Kleiner Perkins and Define Ventures. In connection with the investment, Annie Case, principal at Kleiner Perkins, and Lynne Chou O'Keefe, founder and managing partner at Define Ventures, will both join the MedArrive board of directors. 

Based in New York City, Redesign Health is a venture studio and holding company incubating tech-enabled healthcare businesses. 

The injection of capital will enable MedArrive to continue building its platform, grow its team of industry experts and drive the expansion of key healthcare provider partnerships across the country. With an initial focus on the Florida market, the team expects to expand quickly and effectively over the coming months.

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed additional stress on the health system, with patients avoiding clinics, delaying preventive and critical care and facing financial strain.

"By working alongside communities of EMS professionals, providers, and payors to bring high-quality care into the home at a fraction of the cost of alternatives, MedArrive’s integrated solution is putting patients back at the center of care," said Trigub, CEO of MedArrive.

“Now more than ever, as we continue battling a global pandemic, patients deserve healthcare that is accessible, affordable and safe,” he said.
