Far too often Healthcare providers aren’t talking to each other – patients don’t know this. If you visit the ER, does your Primary Care Physician have a clue, does your dialysis provider? Are you sure?
In this episode we are joined by Joseph Mayer, MD. He is the co-founder and CEO of Cureatr, which provides seamless communication between doctors, streamlined workflows and real-time mobile push notifications to alert care providers when their patients are treated in any care setting within their region.
Joe's inspiration to start Cureatr came during his residency at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Manhattan. Immersed in the fast-paced ER, he lived the time-delay frustration of tracking down primary care physicians to alert them about patient treatment. He knew that he could speed this communication, reduce admin work to save time, human resources and dollars.
Joe launched the pilot for Cureatr while at Mt. Sinai and his quick expansion, with a national presence on the near horizon, coincided with the seismic healthcare shift of fee-for-service to value-based. Healthcare providers, in this new landscape of risk and responsibility, need a seamless approach for better care coordination among a community of care providers.
