We have the responsibility to spark meaningful change.

The lasting health of our communities begins by prioritizing the health of the people who live there.

Belief One

Communities deserve more than the increasingly broken healthcare system we’ve inherited

For many in our country, healthcare fails to deliver on its promise, and it comes at an unaffordable cost. The price we pay is steep. In 2019 alone, nearly $4 trillion went toward healthcare, diverting money away from other necessities like housing, food, education and infrastructure. By creating a better model for healthcare, we can help put money back into the community,
where it belongs.

Healthcare spending devastates social determinants of health.

Belief Two

Innovation must connect
the healthcare experience—not fracture it

For too long patients have been pushed to become the navigators of their own care. That’s not empowering—it’s isolating. We look for opportunities to connect and support the entire health journey, to ensure each patient’s experience is as seamless and successful as possible.

For patients it means moving the healthcare experience from expected frustration to unexpected delight.
Healthcare as a time-drain
Healthcare tailored to your needs
Forced to make every judgment call
Proactive and on-demand access to clinical support
Frustrating go-between among providers
Coordinated providers who know your treatment plan
Constantly googling and placing more at risk
Trusted resources who know you and your medical history
Rx questions with no clear path forward
Rx answers to ensure safety and commitment
Belief Three

Healthcare is better when people are known

Relationships are the foundation of better care. You can see it in how Catalyst physicians care for their patients and how each member of our team works to create personal connections with patients that propel them to better health.

Our members describe the importance of relationships and personal connection through the health journey.

See our Patient Stories.

Belief Four

Those who earn the most trust will produce the most meaningful change

When people believe in the work they do, the care they give and the people they do it with—so much is possible.
