About Us:

CareAdvisors is a technology company helping patients get access to healthcare and the social service benefits they need by automating the manual enrollment burden taken on by hospitals.

Many patients who receive care at hospitals are eligible for Medicaid and other social service benefits, but have barriers to enroll or re-enroll in their benefits. Using a modern technology stack focused on automation, we remove those barriers so that patients can get access to the benefits they need, and lift the financial burden hospitals endure when providing care to patients.

Socio-economic inequality causes health disparities between neighborhoods, which drives our mission: achieving health equity. Without adequate access to health services, food, transportation, housing, and education, upward mobility is challenging. This requires systemic change, and we want to be the unifying social service infrastructure that will empower organizations at the community level who have been serving tirelessly for decades to move the needle.

Our platform empowers care navigators and social workers with a search and communication platform that’s connected to a network of community organizations and hospitals. We use the data gathered across our network to power our automated analytics engine. Join us in building out our platform so we can connect people to the care they need!
