Carbon Health is a healthcare provider that combines brick-and-mortar clinics with virtual care. Its model is designed to improve accessibility and reduce administrative workload and burnout for providers.
A recent investment from CVS Health Ventures will allow Carbon to take its primary care operating model into existing CVS locations. However, the company recently announced it is cutting 200 global staff members and shutting down several programs.
Omnichannel Care Model
Carbon Health is a healthcare provider that uses technology to improve patient experience and clinic efficiency. Its omnichannel care model brings together in-person clinics, virtual care and remote patient monitoring to deliver quality healthcare that is accessible to patients wherever they are.
To achieve this, the company uses smart systems to offload some of the tasks that require human intervention such as capturing structured data during visits, like diagnoses, EM codes, labs and imaging. This helps the physician and team focus on providing excellent care.
It also helps connect and support the patient with a network of experts to help them maintain their health on a day-to-day basis. This approach is referred to as Carbon Health Connective Care, and it’s designed to help patients establish a relationship with their own integrated team, monitor their health on the go, and access in-person care when they need it.
The startup has seven locations in California and plans to expand its presence with partnerships with health systems looking to repurpose existing assets as retail-style consumer-oriented care centers. It has two existing partnerships with NorthBay Healthcare and El Camino Health and has around a dozen more in the works.
Doctors & Designers
At carbon health, we’re powered by experts. Our team of engineers, doctors and designers are pushing the boundaries of healthcare to deliver personal, accessible and high-quality care.
With a network of trusted clinics and an end-to-end technology platform that supports ongoing care management and virtual appointments, Carbon Health is redefining the way people get and pay for their healthcare. The company offers a variety of healthcare services, including urgent care, primary care, mental health and women’s health with virtual care capabilities across the country.
The San Francisco-based company has recently closed a Series D round led by CVS Health Ventures. The investment will fuel the company’s expansion into new markets, sign new value-based care arrangements and invest in its technology. It will also pilot its primary and urgent care model inside CVS’s retail stores, using the software to power the experience for consumers.
Hybrid Healthcare Company
Carbon Health is a hybrid healthcare company that combines expert care with proprietary technology for easy everyday health. It has a wide array of services including primary care and urgent care clinics, virtual healthcare and remote monitoring.
The company has recently received a $100 million investment from CVS Health Ventures, the corporate venture arm of the drugstore giant. The round will fuel the startup’s expansion into new markets, according to executives.
The company is also introducing a new pop-up testing site model that can be deployed rapidly and easily. This consists of construction trailers that are outfitted with everything needed to run on-site COVID tests by medical professionals. This type of model is especially helpful because it can bypass a lot of the red tape involved in opening more traditional clinics, says CEO Eren Bali.
Powered by choice, carbon health brings primary care, urgent care and mental healthcare to patients where and when they need it. Through a unique, seamless experience that includes virtual and in-person appointments, the company combines smart technology with modern clinics to meet users where they are.
Founders Caesar Djavaherian, Eren Bali, Greg Burrell and Pablo Stanley founded Carbon Health in 2015 with the goal of removing traditional boundaries between patients and their doctors to make high-quality, personal care accessible. Currently with 125 brick-and-mortar locations in 13 states and widespread virtual care coverage, the company developed its Connective Care model to blend software and expert care so that every patient can establish a relationship with their own integrated team, monitor their health on the go and access in-person care when they need it.
The company recently closed a whopping $350 million round of funding led by Blackstone’s Horizon platform. The investment will help Carbon Health expand across the country, adding new technologies and digital capabilities to its existing offerings.
