Dr. Bethany Doran, the CEO of Enabled Health, is using a healthcare model that identifies patients at high risk of hospitalization or who need help managing a chronic condition. With a focus on predominantly older patients, Enabled Health works with community partners and senior living facilities to allow patients access to remote monitoring systems, digital tools, and on-site visits.

Bethany explains, "Our goal is to meet them where they are spiritually, holistically, and geographically and be able to provide them with the equipment to enable access to telemedicine and support their health. But also, to meet them in person, in some cases, and just be a good steward and guide to them on their healthcare journey."

 "We spend a good amount of time just listening to their medical history, how they've been doing, any challenges, and reconciling any medications they have. Then we also provide them with equipment to enable telemedicine and telemonitoring. They have a tablet that can either link to wifi, or in some cases, it's cellular, but allows the patient to engage in telemedicine as well for those times that we can't be in-person."

"Going in-person to the assisted living facilities we work with, we'll go once per month in person and set them up for telemedicine for the rest of their visits. But we think it's really important to maintain our relationships with patients, just serving as a partner in health. Not relying only on telemedicine or telemonitoring and thinking that will fix everything about a patient's health, but be there as a true partner and use that as a tool to expand instead access for patients."
