Imagine a healthcare model where the clinician who meets you before your hospital procedure, cares for you while you’re in the hospital, and manages your recovery at home is the same person. Imagine having access to that person 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That when you have a concern, you get real answers and expert clinical care when you need it most.
