Your community. your healthcare.
Colorado is home to some of the most skilled, talented, and trusted doctors in the country. With so much expertise in our own state, there’s no reason to venture across the country to find healthcare providers.
This benefits you, a Colorado resident, for two major reasons.
First, unlike that banana you had with your lunch today, absolutely none of our medical services are outsourced.
We’re bringing back old-school values of having a community of committed, caring, and connected providers. We are building a physician-led network of Colorado providers so you’ll always have access to the right doctor, at the right time, who is close to your home.
To learn more about the glory days of relationship-based community healthcare--and to discover why we’re so passionate about it--we suggest you go visit your grandma. At the very least, we know she’ll enjoy your visit!
Second, our physicians have lived and practiced medicine in Colorado for years and have solid connections with other local medical care providers.
Back in the day, physicians used to have the pleasure practicing their profession while building solid relationships with their patients. The business was founded on community, integrity, and the true desire to help those in need.
Today, that luxury has been lost behind technology, administration processes, and medical costs.
Rising medical expenses, limited amounts of time with patients, and the constant need to do more with less has taken a toll on both doctors and patients.
The physicians at Hippo Health are no longer willing to accept the new way of health care.
We believe everyone is happier with a system that gives patients open access to high quality emergency room physicians at a cost that won’t have you taking out a second mortgage on your house.
Think about it…
When you’ve been miserably fighting off a chest infection for days and the medications aren’t helping, would you prefer to have a doctor pick a specialist out of a catalogue that might be able to help you? Or would you prefer your doctor calls up a colleague that has successfully treated chest infections fast?
Option 2 certainly sounds better in our book. This is our vision for your care on Hippo Health. That’s why we’re committed to building a solid network of physicians--our colleagues whom we know personally and trust--to ensure you receive the best care your community has to offer when we can’t help you via the app.
Think about it…
When patients are happy, doctors are happy. And when doctors are feeling good
about their work, people are healed and lives are saved.
If you’re a physician that craves quality patient relationships, that has the desire to help people in need, and is tired of the exhausting and draining hustle and bustle of 21st century medical care, Hippo Health is for you. In fact, we are working to give the service away for free to all providers in Colorado who want to see and treat their patients on the service directly. Please let us know if you would like to join us in building a physician-led care community.
Seasoned Professionals with a Specialization in Emergency Care
It takes years of experience in the medical field to become a confident, skilled, and well-rounded physician. That’s why every doctor on our staff has a minimum of 10 years of experience--after formal residency training at top programs--in diagnosing medical issues, treating illnesses, and working with patients.
When using the Hippo Health App, you’ll never have to worry about a first-year med student using you as an experiment or test dummy. Phew!
The care providers at Hippo Health are all emergency care physicians--a specialization you rarely have access to at a normal health clinic. With an emergency care background, our doctors are equipped to handle any medical problem from diagnosing the flu to strokes, heart attacks, and massive traumatic injuries. Hippo is not meant for medical emergencies like strokes, heart attacks, or massive traumas, nor are we a 911 service. However, we can help you sort out urgent issues or any ailment where you are not sure where to go for the next steps for care.
Having a well-rounded team of physicians with access to all your history on the app eliminates the problem of you becoming a human ping-pong ball that’s consistently batted around to doctors who struggle to diagnose your health concern.
The longer you’re in the medical field, the easier it is to establish connections with other trusted healthcare providers. Hippo Health doctors have relationships with trusted healthcare professionals in the Colorado community and are building a team network to serve you. If we can’t help you fully solve your medical issue, we will certainly help guide you to the right medical care professional who can.
We promise the physician we connect you with won’t be a thousand miles away asking you to spell out your name with the “A as in Apple” method. We offer local medical care, not computer repair services after all.
