Based in Salt Lake City, Collective Medical’s technology is proven to streamline transitions of care, improve coordination across diverse care teams, and reduce medically unnecessary hospital admissions.
Collective Medical was founded so that patients wouldn’t slip through the cracks.
It started with Patti Green, an emergency department social worker in Boise, Idaho. In the early 2000’s, she noticed that some of her patients were likely visiting other hospitals besides her own. But she didn’t know where, and she didn’t know who they were seeing. As a result, she couldn’t work with these other providers to deliver the type of care her patients needed.
At the time, there was little in the way of communication between emergency departments, community social workers and physicians. Patti started putting together a handwritten plan of care for patients she identified with complex needs. Other hospitals heard about this and when one of the patients they suspected might be on Patti’s list showed up to their hospital, they would call down to Patti to coordinate on the plan of care.
Patti needed to graduate the program beyond paper and pencil. She told her son and his roommate, both computer science students at Brigham Young University, to “write a computer program” to solve the problem.
You don’t say no to Patti. And so Collective Medical was born.
