NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Reimagine Care, the nation’s leading provider of virtual and at-home cancer care services, is pleased to announce an investment from Memorial Hermann Health System, a non-profit, community-focused, award-winning health system committed to creating healthier Greater Houston communities.
Founded in 2020, Reimagine Care was created to give people living with cancer a better treatment and recovery experience; one that allows them to spend more time with those they love, doing things that bring them joy. For most patients, that means receiving more of their care outside of a traditional brick-and-mortar hospital setting. By integrating clinical oncology specialists, technology, data and analytics, Reimagine Care has built a first-of-its-kind platform that is able to safely serve patients from the home while closely collaborating with and acting as an extension of the patient’s own oncology team.
“We are profoundly honored to receive the support of Memorial Hermann. This investment will further enable Reimagine Care to accelerate the development and deployment of our groundbreaking technologies, designed to transform the treatment and management of cancer,” said Dan Nardi, CEO of Reimagine Care. “By leveraging advanced data analytics and artificial intelligence, these solutions provide personalized and more effective treatment options for patients facing a cancer diagnosis.”
Memorial Hermann joins existing institutional investors Santé Health, Martin Ventures, LRV Health, and Sable Investments, as well as, strategic investors City of Hope, McKesson Ventures, and Colorado University Anschutz Medical Campus, in the shared belief that the future of oncology care is in the home.
Eighty-two percent of patients with cancer would like to receive their care at home, and over 90% want on-demand access to an oncology expert, according to Reimagine Care’s 2023 Consumer Research. Through its team of experienced oncology clinicians, who are available 24/7, and the platform's integrated technologies, Reimagine Care is able to provide a seamless, convenient experience – from the comfort of home – that its patients have rated 9.1 out of 10. In addition, the platform’s Virtual Care Center which provides around-the-clock symptom management has a 95 percent success rate of keeping patients out of an emergency room.
"We made the decision to invest in Reimagine Care because of the promising work they are leading to improve the care experience for cancer patients everywhere,” said Feby Abraham, PhD, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer for Memorial Hermann. “Memorial Hermann is committed to delivering convenient, compassionate, cost-effective care to all of the communities we serve, and we are proud to support other organizations whose mission is to do the same and who stand to make a positive impact on care delivery across the industry.”
