“At Ro, we believe that most of the problems in our healthcare system stem from one single underlying cause: our healthcare system does not incentivize building for patients. Some may disagree and that’s a good thing. There should be people trying to fix our healthcare system in different ways. But that core belief is what’s behind Ro’s vision and mission, which guide everything we build.
Our vision, the future we’d like to create, is a patient-centric healthcare system that radically improves life for every one of us. And our mission, our approach, is to revolutionize healthcare by building accessible, impactful, and trusted care that people want. In any other industry, you wouldn’t have to say the last part out loud “that people want.” But in healthcare, building for the patient as the ultimate stakeholder is sadly not implied, required, or frequently even desired.
Our philosophy has often made people uncomfortable. Most doctor’s visits start with “What’s wrong? Why are you here?” So it took many by surprise when we started Ro by simply saying “If this is wrong, come here and let’s see if we can help.” Accessible, impactful, and trusted care that people want.
Since we launched, we’ve helped over 1.5M patients, facilitated over 8 million digital healthcare visits, and there is one Ro patient in nearly every single county in the entire United States.”
