MIAMI, FL–(Marketwired – May 11, 2017) – EpicMD makes affordable concierge health care available 24/7 virtually and locally by partnering with leading doctors across the US.
Miami based health-technology start-up EpicMD, debuted at this year’s South by Southwest technology conference in Austin, TX to address the nation’s unmet demand for high quality, affordable healthcare. This unique business model pairs doctors with the technology and support they need to offer improved care with reduced cost.
Born out of the Cambridge Innovation Center at University of Miami’s Life Science and Technology Park, EpicMD is a disruptive mobile health platform with membership based healthcare programs offering unprecedented levels of patient convenience and ease of use. The platform operates via smartphone, tablet or laptop device allowing its members to connect virtually with U.S. board-certified physicians 24/7.
Matt Wanderer, Founder and CEO listed on three occasions in the INC 500 list of fastest growing companies in America says, “EpicMD is all about helping people connect with their doctor more easily. There is an urgent need to improve our nation’s current healthcare model. The technology is ready and so are the doctors, we can’t wait for government to provide the clean modern solution the country needs. It’s a complex challenge but one that our team is solving for quickly.”
With simple flat-fee membership pricing, EpicMD delivers the most convenient and affordable healthcare product in America. With a commitment to increasing value to its memberships each year, the company is poised to reinvent the way America approaches healthcare.
“We are thrilled to have Epic as a company within the CIC community,” said Natalia Martinez-Kalinina, of CIC Miami, “because they straddle being a healthcare solution, a technology startup, and a company driven by community impact. This hybrid focus is something I have never before seen and is bound to drive innovation over the coming years.”
Like Uber and Airbnb, EpicMD has created a two-sided marketplace for both its Doctors and Members and has contracted services with its first 600 U.S board certified physicians as it builds toward the launch of its “full-circle” version 2.0 solution service in 2018.
