Roy and Ido Schoenberg, and is the founders' third venture in the healthcare technology field. The founders built and implemented large-scale, mission-critical enterprise solutions for healthcare consumers, providers, and payers in both US and international markets.
American Well has created an Online Care system that allows consumers to connect with physicians immediately, whenever they have a health need, from their homes or offices. The innovation uses advanced Web-based technologies and telephony to remove traditional barriers to healthcare access, including insurance coverage, geography, mobility and time constraints. Online Care is growing rapidly and is currently offered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Hawaii, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota, OptumHealth (a business of UnitedHealth Group) and TriWest Healthcare Alliance.
