Dan Greenleaf is the President and CEO of Modivcare and is presenting a complete solution for vulnerable patients whose healthcare outcomes are most affected by recognized social determinants of health.

Dan elaborates, "But our view is it's not necessarily about the clinical intervention. It's about having access to the healthcare system through transportation. It's about getting a nutritious meal on a daily basis or meals on a daily basis. It's about in the event you need somebody to help you with activities of daily living that we can provide that member a caregiver. Or it's about remote monitoring where we have a way to be in kind of a constant conversation with that patient about whether it be their vitals, whether it be about medications, or whether it be about personal emergency response systems."

"We're a one-of-a-kind company doing what we're doing right now. I joined this company two years ago. It was largely a transportation company, but it did have access to 25 million lives at the time. We're 30 million now. And it became abundantly clear to me that our payers, our states, our members, our case managers all want a holistic solution and a one-stop-shop for our members."
