A New Model for Healthcare

Nov 20, 2013

Five years ago, freelancers came together to build something great. By pooling our collective resources, we started a social-purpose insurance company whose profits went back to keeping freelancers healthy -- not to shareholders.

Then after listening to the needs of those tens of thousands of freelancers, we built Freelancers Medical, a primary care practice in New York City.

This is the power of people coming together. When we do, we not only build things that help everyone, but also provide a model for how systems can work better in the future. We call this New Mutualism. We’re stronger together than we are alone.

Our new model of healthcare is gaining attention. CNNMoney came to talk to Freelancers Union founder Sara Horowitz last week at our Brooklyn primary care practice:

As Sara says in the video, “Primary care that evolves like this is going to be the way of the future.” At a time of big changes for healthcare, we have the opportunity to redefine what quality care looks like. We think it starts with giving communities access to great primary care, resources, and support to help them get and stay healthy.

We hope you share this infographic with others. Together, let's write the next chapter in healthcare.
