Who We Are

WHO WE ARE

We are the Matchmakers of Healthcare

We measure our success by the number of people we help.

OUR MISSION

Healthcare access isn't easy. We want to fix that.

SpecialtyCare Connect is a health data science and services company that empowers consumers to get the care they deserve. 

Our proprietary solutions combine big data and expert clinical insights which we aim straight at the root cause of healthcare access problems.  We do this by understanding the consumer, objectively matching to their needs and preferences, preparing them, and delivering timely access to a choice of the most appropriate physicians for their condition. 

We deliver consumer-focused programs and solutions for all other constituents in the healthcare continuum. Our programs and solutions help everyone achieve the quadruple aim in healthcare: improved patient experience, physician satisfaction, reduced costs, and optimal outcomes.
