MedPilot began as a patient advocacy company when our co-founder, Jordan Brown, realized that the increasing challenges of understanding medical billing provided a clear opportunity to employ technology to expedite the path to clarity and fairness. He assembled a team to help him: Matt Buder Shapiro, a digital marketer specializing in healthcare, Jake Myers, a seasoned revenue cycle management consultant, and two talented software engineers, Leonard Law and Rakinur Alam. Together, with our diverse backgrounds and common exposure to healthcare, we began trying to fix this systemic issue within our healthcare system.
Every year, over 50 million Americans are sent to third-party debt collectors, and too many of them for the wrong reasons. Some didn’t receive their bills, while others couldn’t understand what their personal responsibility was, or perhaps the payment options didn’t work for them. As patient responsibilities grow to be a major component of our healthcare system, it becomes very clear that the healthcare industry can do a better job of working with them to resolve these issues.
Our co-founder and CEO, Jake Myers, has been working in revenue cycle management consulting for seven years. His perspective on medical collections helped our group to conclude that we would best scale our impact by focusing on building technology that could be used by the provider-side, instead of targeting individual patients.
In April 2017, MedPilot and leading patient services company, MedConcepts, teamed up to provide superior patient solutions to healthcare providers, RCM companies, and Practice Management Systems.
“Through this relationship, MedConcepts and MedPilot are positioned to offer the best patient services solutions in the market. We have something for everyone, whether a large health system looking to outsource, an urgent care facility or ASC doing billing internally, or a practice management system that wants to enhance its patient solutions.” Jacob Myers, MedPilot Founder & CEO.
