To improve community health and reduce the cost of care by supporting platforms that enable health and human service providers and governmental agencies to self-organize into open-panel, adaptable, client-centered networks.
At Curandi, we envision a better community model. One that treats every person as an individual. One that empowers providers instead of limiting them. One that pays for outcomes, more than services.
One that puts patients first.
We will achieve this by harnessing the power of science to support practical systems that match the reality of the community environment. Systems that self-organize and learn to deliver results and conserve resources. New ways of thinking that deliver community health that sustains the emotional and physical well-being among people, advances their aspirations and satisfies their needs in their unique environment.
Patients First: Our decisions are driven by the desire to make positive change in peoples’ everyday lives.
Integration: Community health is a complex, interconnected set of issues for which an adaptive, integrated systems approach is needed.
Community: We strengthen networks to better connect and serve all members of the community.
Empowerment: We empower communities to set and achieve their own unique goals.
Knowledge: We enable information-sharing to help communities make well-informed decisions.
About Dr. Rohwer
Friendly, compassionate and down-to-earth, Michael Rohwer, MD, doesn’t fit the industry disruptor stereotype. But with the heart of a restless entrepreneur and the genuine desire to improve peoples’ lives, he’s been quietly challenging the status quo since he left medical school.
He implemented one of the first electronic medical records systems on the West Coast, improving productivity, accuracy and patient care at his practice. He created a new medical management department to support community health plans in Oregon’s Marion and Polk counties, developing a new web platform that enabled tighter management through rules-based automation. He was the first founder of Performance Health Technology, Ltd. (PH Tech), an administrative services provider whose unique, independent platform and associated payment system helps community health plans reduce costs without sacrificing quality of care.
After leading PH Tech through successful growth, Dr. Rohwer turned his attention to healthcare’s Big Problem: how to make patient-centered care truly sustainable. And the deeper he looked, the more he realized that the answer doesn’t lie within the healthcare system – it lies within the community. He founded Curandi to provide the expertise and tools to help integrate all human and healthcare services to demonstrably improve community health.
