The Carie solution began with no rules. In collaboration with the brightest minds, in both the healthcare and technology industries, we came together to map how healthcare could be optimally delivered by learning from other industries and building a new healthcare delivery model; the focus being the Physician / Patient relationship.
In all that we do, we will advocate for the American doctor and preservation of the doctor-patient relationship.
We resolve to communicate openly and to take responsibility for our words and actions.
Through our product development and our strategic partnerships, we will be on the leading edge of the healthcare technology revolution.
From the elegance of our design to the ease of our processes, we will strive for beautiful simplicity.
Matt Wanderer created the concept for Carie and continues as our CEO and visionary, because he feels driven to do his part to help rescue our country’s remaining 300,000 independent doctors from being swallowed up by a healthcare system that no longer values them correctly, and increasingly treats our medical care like it were something akin to fast food delivery. He launched Carie to remind Americans of the high-quality medical care that our parents and grandparents once received from their family doctors, and to tell them that it’s about to come back in a big way.
During a life-changing trip to Chennai, India in 2011 Matt, got to see how a few simple technologies (when combined) created an amazing service called virtual care (telehealth or digital health). It may at first sound a little techy, but quality virtual care is really just the natural progression of what great medical care should be, with a powerful technology boost that makes it vastly more convenient and easier to access. He saw how it was cleverly being used in India to treat millions of people living in remote areas and was blown away. He asked himself—Why don’t we have this back home? Sure, we have a few virtual care companies, but no one really uses them. How would it change our doctor’s lives, and our healthcare system, if someone created a high-quality U.S. based virtual care ecosystem that actually connected patients with their own doctors? No one had really even tried.
Since Matt’s trip to India, fixing our healthcare system and saving our family doctors has become a bit of an obsession. Economists widely acknowledge that if every American fully embraced virtual care today; it would save our healthcare system tens of billions of dollars each year—and perhaps trigger the greatest economic shift our country has seen since the dot com era. Whether that happens or not, virtual care really is the next big economy, and it’s all happening right now in 24-hour technology development cycles. It is Carie’s mission to change the face of healthcare in America and save the independent physician from the assembly line that is big medicine in this country.
