In an interview with SmartTRAK, Parachute Health CEO David Gelbard discusses the Company and its novel, online DME ordering system for medical devices and supplies that benefit the patient, provider and supplier eliminating the challenges of the ancient fax world.
Parachute Health has implemented a novel, online ordering system that is used for a variety of DME supplies including mobility, sleep therapy and respiratory aids, along with diabetes, wound care, ostomy and urology incontinence supplies. The system benefits the patient, provider and supplier by creating a win, win, win for all and eliminates the challenges of the back-and-forth approval process associated with faxing requests.
In an interview with SmartTRAK, Parachute Health’s CEO, David Gelbard said he founded the Company because his father did not receive an important DME supply after leaving the hospital, causing him to fall at home and requiring additional care. David’s vision for the Company is to establish the infrastructure for DME supplies such that its ease-of-use replicates that of ordering shoes on Amazon or swiping your credit card at a local coffee store. Today, the Company operates across the US at 40,000 different sites of care, from hospitals, nursing homes and doctor’s offices to home health and hospice agencies, and has a network of over 100,000 physicians and prescribers—a number that is rapidly growing.
