“Companies face mounting costs threatening to hurt corporate profits and employee well-being. We must shift away from a supply-driven health care system organized around what clinicians do, toward a patient-centric system organized around individual patient needs,” Snehal Patel, CEO and co-founder of MyDoc, said in a statement
