Our mission became clear: to reinvent the concierge care experience into a digital on-demand solution, at a fraction of the cost using the mobile tools that people know.
Built in Miami, Florida in the Cambridge Innovation Center at University of Miami’s Life Science and Technology Park.

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.
Along the way we learned about how great care could be made simple. The wealthy and the famous have long enjoyed the benefits of what is called “Concierge Medicine.” A high cost, healthcare membership model where the patient and physician work in true partnership. There are no painfully long wait times at the doctor's office, lab testing and medications are conveniently coordinated for the member each month and every member has 24/7 access to quality care whenever they need it. The result, a healthier and happier you.
Our mission became clear: to reinvent the concierge care experience for all patients, across the country, in a digital on-demand platform, using the mobile tools we all expect, at a fraction of the cost.
We are driven, we are motivated and we always enjoy working together.
Our commitment to honesty means we resolve to communicate openly and to always take responsibility for our words and actions.
We aim to constantly create new market places that change and redefine healthcare.
Carie was built to fit into the lives of everyone by prioritizing health and wellness through a simple and easy-to-use platform.
Carie is led by California native, Matt Wanderer who has now been listed three times in the top ranks of the INC 500 for various companies he has founded.
Built to remedy the challenges of access, cost and convenience in US healthcare; Carie was first inspired while on a trip to Southern India in 2010. While earning his MBA with the NYU Stern School of Business, the London School of Economics and HEC Paris, Matt had an unforgettable opportunity to visit with the leadership of Apollo Hospitals India. During that visit, he saw first-hand the power of mobile health care, and was introduced to a concept that would forever shape his vision for the future of healthcare delivery.
Matt saw that through the use of mobile care units, satellite link and remote video technology, Apollo could treat patients in remote villages up to 1000 miles away. Remotely, a surgeon could safely perform hundreds of minor medical procedures a day, all at a fraction of the cost of an in-person procedure. The practice of virtual healthcare in India opened doors to people who would otherwise never receive the help they needed.
After returning from India, Matt dove straight into the world of health technology, founding the nation’s leading personalized medicine company, RestoreHealth. By 2014, the company had become the 8th fastest growing private company in America. In spite of its success, Matt had never been able to shake that calling from India, and still yearned for an opportunity to share with the US, the company he had been visioning since 2010, one that could alleviate economic pressure on the U.S. health care system as a whole while providing Americans with a new level of patient convenience. In 2015, Restore Health was sold allowing Matt the freedom to focus full-time on that vivid spark— and on the journey that is Carie Health.
