We solve the issues of 1) lack of accessibility to medical care and 2) insufficient supply of medical professionals to serve people in need of care. Rijuven’s Care Delivery Platform increases access to healthcare by providing an turn-key infrastructure (hardware, software, services) to support health assessment and care extension to any patient, anywhere, anytime. Founded in 2012 in Pittsburgh, PA, we are on a mission to make healthcare affordable and accessible at the times and places it matters most.
Every day, we're guided by our core values. Our core values are not just buzzwords. They arise from years of reflection and soul-searching. They are the principles that define us and inform everything we do at Rijuven.
Increase Access to Care. We take access to care literally. We get up every day thinking about how we can deliver care to as many people as possible. Our platform has the necessary infrastructure to deliver comprehensive care at an affordable price.
Serve the Underserved. We founded Clinic To Door partly because we wanted to address the more than 1 billion people that don’t access to the most basic healthcare needs. We believe that our technology driven solution will fill the gap in healthcare, in terms of providing a plug-and-play infrastructure that can diagnose any patient, anytime and anywhere.
Smothering Care. We don’t accept mediocrity. We don't settle for good enough. We don’t rest until we've delivered a customer experience that so exceeds our clients' expectations that they get tears in their eyes and become overwhelmed by the amount of care we provide.
