Technical Co-Founder; VP of Software Engineering
About the Company/Team
bosWell is a digital health company that strives to improve access to health care in community-based settings. We have raised a pre-seed round from well-known social impact foundations and angel investors. This is a rare opportunity to join the founding team of a startup that has already raised outside capital. 80% of a person's health is driven by factors outside of the doctor's office - enough food to eat, a place to sleep. Health plans and providers are increasingly recognizing the importance of these health related social needs, but they lack the ability to truly help. bosWell is here to change that. People in need are taking matters into their own hands by going to community based organizations (CBO's) like food pantries for help. These CBO's, despite being underfunded with limited staff, play an outsized role in the community's health. It's time to elevate CBO's to become an integral part of healthcare delivery, and bosWell is building the bridge to help healthcare organizations collaborate with CBO's to take care of the overall health of underserved communities. We start with food insecurity, offering food pantries a free CRM to check in individuals who receive assistance. With the data collected, we identify members who belong to specific healthcare organizations, thereby helping the healthcare organizations 1) understand how their patients experience social needs and 2) engage with CBO staff to further assist the patient with additional social and health concerns.
