Medix offers digital health services to US customers
Medix, a data and technology driven medical management company, has welcomed the opening of its new headquarters in New York, as it expands its virtual care models and health management services into the US
“Our vast global experience, existing technologies, and roadmap are continuing to unlock immense growth opportunities in the healthcare space and enable us to further drive impact and scale,” commented Sigal Atzmon, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of the Medix Group. “Following our establishment in Europe and the Middle East, Medix chose to further expand into some of the most challenging markets across Asia. While we already have long standing experience servicing American individuals and large corporations, the timing has never been so right to create our permanent presence in the US.”
Kelvyn Young is spearheading the company's entry into the market, serving as Head of Americas. Young was previously Global Head of Life and Health Partnerships at Swiss Re, where he worked for more than 15 years. He led the launch of some of the most advanced health insurance products globally, while also focusing on digital health solutions, including diabetes management, early cancer detection and the development of a groundbreaking mental health solution. He commented on the move: “Medix will reinvent the way American people access and consume healthcare. By using AI and data that enable us to better understand our customers, we help people navigate the healthcare system in a very different, simplified and personalized way and provide a reliable, one-stop shop for their medical needs. We are here to bring the future of healthcare to Americans, today.”
Healthcare provision virtually and in person
By combining digital platforms with human-touch virtual services, Medix aims to provide borderless, accessible medical management solutions.
