CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield Recently Launched a Virtual Primary Care Company
In case you missed it, CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield recently launched a virtual primary care company; CloseKnit! The digital health company will provide constant access to primary care services through an app to reach the large population of people who do not have relationships with primary care providers. "CloseKnit helps fill critical gaps for many patients, particularly those who lack a [primary care provider], including expanding our valued network of providers and making it easy to access the care they seek 24 hours a day, seven days a week," said Brian Pieninck, CEO of CareFirst and EAGB Board Chair. CloseKnit is a wholly owned subsidiary and was built in collaboration with Healthworx, CareFirst’s innovation and investment arm. Via BBJ.
