About Axle Health

Axle Health builds software that enables any company to add in-home visits to their patient offering. Gone are the days of taking off work to go into an office or lab. Axle provides health professionals, optimized routing, and supply chain management to handle in-home care, so providers can maintain lasting relationships with their patients over video and chat while Axle provides physical services in their home.

About the role

COVID has led to an explosion in telehealth. But the one thing preventing all of our healthcare needs from being met virtually? The world is still physical. We still need vaccines, blood draws, injections, and therapeutics that can only be delivered in person. That's where we come in. Axle Health connects telehealth platforms and patients with in-home healthcare professionals to bring care into the patient's home. We bridge the gap between virtual and physical care.

We’ve raised $2.7M from Pear VC, YCombinator, and other VCs, plus founders at Eden, QuitGenius, CareRev and more. We’ve also been featured in TechCrunch. If you want to get an idea of where we’re headed, check out our CEO’s launch blog post, or Pear’s blog post announcing our seed round.

Healthcare is is complex. Healthcare in the home? Even more so. Part of the reason in-home care isn't widespread is because it's not economical without a heavy technological component. Providing economical in-home care is a series of optimization problems. How do you assign visits to the lowest cost health professional qualified for a visit? How do you account for different license requirements across states (e.g. a medical assistant in Florida can administer an IV, but in California they can't)? How do you ensure visits that require refrigerated supplies are completed earlier in the day? Solving this 3-dimensional tradeoff between time, geography, and licensure is what we do day-in and day-out.
