My Own Doctor
Who Are We
Leadership You Can Count On
At MyOwnDoctor, we envision a future where healthcare is accessible, equitable, and optimal for everyone. That’s why we created a virtual care platform designed to get people more engaged in their care and educated about their health—with a strong support system to ensure that treatment plans and healthy behaviors take root.We bridge the gap between the convenience of telemedicine and the connection to local, in-person care. We leverage community partners to anchor patient care close to home, and engage patients as whole people who have unique, individual lives and needs that must be taken into account in order for them to thrive.
Through our network of healthcare providers—called Virtual Physician Associates—members can schedule virtual appointments with top primary and specialty care providers (including mental and behavioral health) and chat with their doctor using secure messaging. MyOwnDoctor connects members to providers they know and trust, whether that’s a provider they’ve seen for years or one who shares their lived, cultural experience. Our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution integrates the personal brand of the physician, medical practice, and medical system to further reinforce that trust and comfort.
Members with complex needs have a dedicated Care Team of providers to help coordinate their care, better manage their illness, and improve health outcomes.
Remote Patient Monitoring
Members receive a home Connected Device Kit (blood pressure cuff, glucometers, and more), so their Care Team can monitor their vitals and health status.
Care Coordination with Remote Patient
MonitoringMembers who are chronically ill with the highest need receive both care coordination services and remote patient monitoring to reduce hospital admissions and ED visits, as well as to complete key health assessments.
Culturally Specific Care
We truly know our patients
MyOwn Doctor is the first to offer culturally competent virtual care through our Black Telehealth and LatinX Telehealth platforms. Data and research show that positive health outcomes increase dramatically when Black and Brown patients are seen by Black and Brown providers. Black Telehealth and LatinX Telehealth make it easier for members to connect with providers who look like them, understand their lived experience, and better engage and treat them.
We increase engagement by connecting members to Care Navigators who come from their community and proactively help to guide their healthcare journey. Care Navigators connect members to healthcare providers, as well as to community partners and resources as a way to address social determinants to their health.
Community Resources and Referral
Our platform connects members to our partners—a network of trusted community-based organizations—to address social determinants of health and their needs as a whole person with wrap-around social services and support.
