Kylyn Mead has worked as an attorney in health-care law for years, but now is turning her career and her new business toward one goal - better patient care.
“I love patients and patient care,” Mead says. She adds, “People always ask what do you want to do when you grow up? I always answered I wanted to help people and this is how I do it.”
Go Docs Go
specializes in helping streamline the treatment process for people who require lengthy treatment of chronic conditions. The idea is to help prevent coughs from turning into pneumonia, which helps drive down health-care costs and enables the patients, who are often elderly and utilizing Medicare, to age in place in their homes. Go Docs Go accomplishes that by providing in-house service calls by nurses and doctors.
“A lot of treatable diseases aren’t treated because they can’t get see a doctor,” Mead says.
Go Docs Go has experienced rapid growth in its first year offering these services across southeast Michigan. It now employs a dozen people and the occasional summer intern. Mead expects her business to continue to grow as the population ages.
“That’s how we keep accelerating our growth,” Mead says.
