On Found Live, Darrell and Jordan caught up with Cityblock co-founder and president Toyin Ajayi. CItyblock provides primary care, behavioral health and social care to people historically marginalized in the healthcare system, primarily those who receive their health insurance through Medicaid, with the goal of providing 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 worked in a hospital system, she was frustrated with the systemic issues that resulted in the same patients being sent back to the hospital over and over again. So she began experimenting with ways to expand her care by giving out her cell phone number, making house calls, and being available to explain medications. This idea evolved into Cityblock, where this level of personalized care is scaled. They talked about the healthcare system, how providers can improve care, Toyin’s fierce TechCrunch disrupt panel, and answered a few questions from the audience.
