A Few Words From Our Advisors
Dr. Trent Haywood
Former CMO @ Blue Cross Blue Shield
"Home will become the most prevalent location for healthcare services. However, we shouldn't sacrifice quality and affordability to obtain accessibility. Tomorrow Health solves this dilemma for health plans as the industry's first managed marketplace for home-based healthcare. Their solutions fit seamlessly within a plan's existing operations to improve member experience and drive substantial value."
Dr. Roy Beveridge
Former CMO @ Humana
"From a population health standpoint, there are few areas of greater importance than the safe transition of patients to home-based healthcare...During a critical and often stressful time for patients and caregivers, the patient-first mentality of the Tomorrow Health platform delivers an unprecedented level of care that supports patients and their families as they navigate their home-based healthcare needs."
Former CEO @ Tenet Health
"Vijay experienced the fragmented system of home health from all perspectives from the patient experience of his mother, and from the clinicians, payors, and suppliers while at Oscar Health. This combined with a powerful team uniquely positions Tomorrow Health to solve this problem from within."
