Driving Better Health with Roundtrip's Mark Switaj The Deep End by ODF

    • Technology

Mark Switaj is co-founder & CEO of Roundtrip Health. Roundtrip is driving better health by providing a full suite of non emergent transportation options to patients in different care settings across the country.

After exploring the India and health tech market in India last week, we wanted to revisit  healthcare in the US.  Today’s conversation is about social determinants of health. Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the conditions in the environments where people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks.

Roundtrip specifically is focusing on transportation - 4 million people miss appointments every year because of a transportation barrier. But Mark is able to speak to how organizations more broadly must lean on data insights in order to improve health outcomes.

We also talk about how the pandemic has affected the domestic health tech and telehealth landscapes. Mark’s comments echo some of the observations that Nikhil Krishnan highlighted in our episode on overcoming the six stages of health tech grief that we released back in December.
