medtigo Care
Connecting you to health

Connected concierge care,
for Covid-19 and beyond

While patients and families avoid hospitals and emergency departments out of concern for contagion in the era of Covid-19, people still need care. Missing needed care is putting millions of Americans at risk, and current online solutions are inadequate.

medtigo Care is a comprehensive approach to digital healthcare and health security, combining:

  • Virtual Urgent Care (VUC), staffed by experienced emergency doctors and PAs, accessible 7 days a week by video and text
  •  A LifeKit customized for your family’s medical needs and risks, with essential prescription medicines as well diagnostic, monitoring and treatment equipment
  •  Personalized expert advice to keep your family healthy through risk reduction and preventive care, based on the latest medical literature and evidence-based guidelines

medtigo Care can manage most common medical problems remotely

By combining specialized emergency providers and at-home diagnostic and treatment equipment in your LifeKit, we can care for far more medical issues than typical telemedicine providers
