Anthony Capone is President of DocGo and brings his background in computational learning theory and artificial intelligence to the world of mobile medical solutions. By creating a robust routing and dispatch system integrated with first responders and up-trained lower-cost healthcare providers, DocGo is able to treat patients in emergency situations as well as provide on-site and at-home comprehensive healthcare.

Anthony explains, "Just in the past couple of years, the acceptance in a community for point-of-care tests for COVID really changed the landscape. However, COVID is one thing. The key component is that now people are more receptive to that idea, and there's a lot more investment from them going in. So things where you normally would have to drive to a lab and have to wait a couple of days to get your results, you can now do a point-of-care test right then and there. So if you combine that together with a remote diagnostic system, then what you end up getting is care that might have taken three episodes, three encounters, can be done in one encounter."

"Well, one of the biggest ways to reduce that cost of care for them is to keep the patients out of the emergency room. And who can keep them out of the emergency room? Well, it's a rare person who can actually go and have somebody who can respond rapidly to an urgent care visit and prevent that patient from actually going into the emergency room, and we're in that position. So physicians want to work with us, especially those that are on some sort of capitated type risk-based arrangement like an ACO."
