We don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach – it's about meeting the needs of our clients when and where they want it," said Nesim Bildirici, CEO of AMC Health.

Their platform combines state-of-the-art technology that easily enables their customers, like Geisinger, with fully scalable, integrated and customized solutions that proactively ensure high-risk patients are monitored from the comfort of their own home.
"AMC Health is a trusted partner that has worked with us for more than 12-years. Today, in the wake of the COVID crisis, taking care of our patients is priority one and having the ability to reduce the capacity strain for our clinical teams and staff gives us the needed edge on assessing, managing and mitigating the impact of COVID-19.
