About Carie Health

Carie Health, LLC was formed in 2015 to create a next generation telehealth platform that, in partnership with major medical insurance, sets out to radically improve the cost and convenience gap that most Americans experience when it comes to the availability of quality medical care.

Carie’s HIPAA compliant virtual care platform allows its members to connect virtually with their doctor, or a local U.S. board-certified doctor 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For physicians, Carie provides a free turnkey virtual practice platform to help them communicate with and enroll their patients. Practices can eliminate or decrease office overhead fees and costs, and the hassle of insurance while running their practice on their terms, from anywhere, anytime. Health systems can also utilize Carie as a dedicated licenseable solution featuring robust administrative features and functionality that health systems should expect, ranging from multiple user roles to customizable marketing content. The global telemedicine market is estimated to grow from $25.53 billion in 2015 to $57.92 billion in 2020. The consumer trend toward mobile/now solutions shows that 62% of American consumers believe that video consultation is as good as in person visits.  Carie Health’s telehealth platform is positioned to take advantage of this rapid growth.
