Tembo Health is a virtual medical practice that helps patients in nursing homes receive care in hard to access specialties like psychiatry and cardiology. Our mission is to improve healthcare outcomes. The status quo is unacceptable, as our seniors have difficulty receiving specialty care leading to worse healthcare outcomes including re-hospitalizations. By partnering with nursing homes, Tembo Health drives quality improvement with our network of world-class clinicians. Our technology allows our clinicians to provide both complex and quality care with a seamless user experience integrating medical data from various sources. 

Our leadership team has deep expertise in clinical medicine, clinical transformation, operations, and technology with experience at top institutions including BCG, GE, Harvard Hospitals, Mount Sinai, Northwell Health, and Oscar. We’re backed by prominent investors including Bloomberg Beta, B Capital Group, and Resolute Ventures.
