NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DocGo, a leading provider of last-mile mobile health services and integrated ambulance medical transportation solutions (Nasdaq: DCGO), announced today it will be working with L.A. Care Health Plan to facilitate mobile health services to Medicare and Medicaid populations in Los Angeles. L.A. Care is the largest publicly operated health plan in the country, serving Los Angeles County residents for 25 years. Slated to launch in August 2022, this relationship enables DocGo to reach eligible L.A. Care members with its range of mobile health services, including preventive, episodic and chronic care services, along with the ability to close gaps in care, among others.
Through this partnership, DocGo is offering an alternative for patients to have treatments delivered in the home, any time of the day or night.
“We’re thrilled to be expanding our footprint on the West Coast through this contract with L.A. Care,” said Anthony Capone, president of DocGo. “Our mission is to make high-quality health care accessible to vulnerable communities, and growing partnerships with health plans enables us to transform how healthcare is delivered in the home, improving the quality of life for patients in communities across the U.S.”
DocGo will initially focus on providing care for L.A. Care members who were recently discharged from a hospital and still need higher acuity medical support at home.
“Providing care in the home has become increasingly important during the pandemic, especially for our nation’s most underserved patients,” said Richard Seidman, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer at L.A. Care. “DocGo’s mobile model will ensure our members with the highest needs get the care they need to avoid unnecessary trips to the ER.”
DocGo is working to shape the future of healthcare by bringing personalized treatment to patients where and when they need it most, breaking down barriers to care and addressing access issues within our current healthcare system.
