Cityblock co-founder discusses why an affordable, human-centered healthcare model works

On Found Live Darrell and Jordan got to chat with Cityblock co-founder and president, Toyin Ajayi. Cityblock provides primary care, behavioral health and social care to folks who have been historically marginalized in the healthcare system, primarily people who are receiving their health insurance through Medicaid, with the goal of providing high-quality holistic care at a lower cost. They do this through a network of physicians, community outreach teams and by working with insurance providers. While Dr. Ajayi was working in a hospital system she became frustrated by the systemic issues that were sending the same patients back to the hospital time and time again. So she began experimenting with ways to extend her care, like giving out her cell phone number, making house calls and being available to explain medications. That idea grew into Cityblock, where that level of personalized care is scaled. They talked about the healthcare system, how providers can improve care, Toyin’s spicy TechCrunch Disrupt panel and answered a few audience questions.
