Launched in 2016 in New Orleans, LA, Ready provides a convenient, affordable, and coordinated solution to help at-risk, vulnerable populations access and navigate the healthcare system by providing high-quality care, education, and support through community-based resources.
We partner with leading health plans, health systems, and at-risk provider groups to identify and engage the hardest to reach patients. Our hybrid care model leverages in-home and telemedicine capabilities, deploying specially trained âRespondersâ (with backgrounds as EMTs and paramedics) into patientsâ homes paired with a Ready clinician (Physician, NP, PA, or LCSW) via telehealth.
Ready meets patients where they are, addressing their physical, behavioral, and social needs to improve self-efficacy and trust - leading to reductions in unnecessary ED utilization, driving high-quality outcomes, and lowering the total cost of care.
We currently provide care in three markets: Louisiana, Nevada, and the Capital Region, with plans for national expansion underway.
