Who we are

HealtheMed is a public benefit corporation dedicated to enriching the lives of underserved populations in the state of Minnesota.

Clinic@Home, a first of its kind, digital system of care enables Medicaid waivered clients to get better access to health care in their homes through its hybrid telemedicine platform.

Our mission is to keep Medicaid waivered participants in the community longer by enabling access to the essential care services they need, in the comfort of their own home.  We want these important citizens to become more independent and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
