Commonwealth Care Alliance Enterprise Architect – instED Director in Boston, Massachusetts

Our healthcare system is under tremendous pressure as we face an unprecedented global pandemic, ever rising costs, and a lack of capacity and access to quality care. These challenging circumstances have emphasized the need for innovative care delivery models that go beyond the traditional methods of caring for patients. We should no longer accept the fact that millions of people do not have access to proper care and visit Emergency Departments because they have no alternatives. The poor patient experience, the sub-optimal care, and the estimated $8.3B spent on unnecessary ED visits each year, make it extremely clear that something needs to be done.

instED was founded to help solve these very problems. We strive to eliminate unnecessary and avoidable visits to Emergency Departments and the inpatient hospital admissions that often follow, by offering quality urgent care services in the comfort of the patient’s home.
