Our partner Iora Health is in the news!

Iora Health’s CEO Rushika Fernandopulle recently attended the WIRED Data | Life Conference and shared his vision of a patient-centered health care system.

“What’s key to our model is to build a team around the patient.”

— Rushika Fernandopulle

Grameen PrimaCare is very excited to be working with Iora to develop a program to meet the needs of Grameen America borrowers.  Over the past year, our two teams have been working hard to develop the curriculum for our weekly meetings and to create a patient experience in the clinic that will empower the members by building a relationship with them and creating opportunities for them to learn how to manage their health and receive high-quality care to keep their medical expenses low.
