Carbon Health Merges With Direct Urgent Care to Create Vertically Integrated Healthcare Solution for California Patients

October 29, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 29, 2018--Healthcare startup Carbon Health today announced a merger with Direct Urgent Care, a network of urgent care centers, bringing its total clinic count to seven across Northern California. Unlike other healthcare disruptors, Carbon Health combines innovative technology and physical clinics to provide a comprehensive, vertically integrated approach to patient care.

“Our mission is to make world class healthcare accessible to everyone. Traditional healthcare models are centered around doctors and hospitals, but we are rebuilding an entirely new system that specifically meets the needs of the people who matter the most - the patients,” said Eren Bali, co-founder and CEO of Carbon Health. “By combining Direct Urgent Care’s clinical expertise with our great technology platform, we are able to provide an amazing care experience without incurring any additional costs.”

Since opening our first clinic two years ago, Carbon Health has been redesigning the healthcare experience from the patient’s perspective. Built from the ground up, the platform integrates with insurance companies, pharmacies, labs and hospitals to make healthcare intuitive for both patients and doctors. With the merger, the company now provides primary and urgent care through its seven clinics and on-the-go through its video visits and AI-assisted, messaging-based visits.

“Carbon Health is redefining the healthcare experience for both consumers and doctors,” said Caesar Djavaherian, co-founder and Chief Medical Officer at Carbon Health and founder of Direct Urgent Care. “Administration and billing have long been pain points for doctors, but our technology has streamlined this process, which means that we get to spend more quality face time with our patients.”

Through the Carbon Health app, patients can manage appointments, make payments, access their medical records and lab results, fill prescriptions and get care - directly from their mobile phones. To learn more and to try Carbon Health visit carbonhealth.com
