Chief Medical Officer

Matter Health

  • Location: Nashville, TN

Matter Health Technology (Matter Health) is a technology-enabled primary care provider that delivers concierge-level preventative care and simplifies healthcare for seniors. Matter Health believes healthcare should come to the community and expand beyond clinical care to treat the entire person – physically, mentally, and socially. Matter Health has designed and implemented technologies that:

  • empower clinicians to better serve patients
  • allow members to take control of their health
  • provide the ability for families and other caregivers to better support patients

Matter Health leverages holistic care delivery models in its patient care centers to treat patients via high-touch primary care that includes same day visits, longer appointments, and real time digital interactions. These models are powered by specialized care teams focused specifically on a complex, high needs patient population. Care teams include physicians, nurse practitioners and member experience managers. Care teams are dedicated to each patient care center, allowing intimate and strong relationships to be built with members. While current fee-for-service based care can hinder patients’ ability to get healthy and save money, Matter Health’s value-based model improves health outcomes for the patient and lowers costs. Older adults have different needs, and the current healthcare system does not put a patient’s health and wellness first. The Matter Health platform helps all patients to Live Better.
