Accessible, equitable care for all.

Who we are

At RubiconMD we are on a passionate pursuit to empower primary care clinicians to deliver accessible, equitable specialty care to their patients.

We built the first eConsult platform and today we are the leading multi-specialty care network. We’re continuously innovating and expanding what’s possible for primary care.

We deeply understand the challenges facing primary care today, since we’ve been helping value-based care organizations enhance their primary care model for over 10 years. Our products elevate the quality of care, reduce unnecessary referrals, drive down costs, and close access gaps. All of our products deliver access to the most extensive network of virtual specialists on the only platform for specialty care that is HITRUST-certified.

From mental health to cardiology to chronic condition management, clinicians get fast access to expertise that’s relational, not transactional. Patients can get the timely, comprehensive care plans they need.

We’re redefining what primary care can do and we invite you to join us.

We envision a world where everyone, regardless of who they are or where they are from, can access high-quality specialty care.

RubiconMD &
Oak Street Health

On October 21, 2021, just eight years after its inception, RubiconMD was acquired by Oak Street Health, Inc. (NYSE: OSH), a network of value-based primary care centers for adults on Medicare.

RubiconMD and Oak Street Health are integrating virtual specialty care into the existing care model at Oak Street Health. Together we are evolving primary care to deliver streamlined referral processes, more comprehensive care plans, and more efficient specialty care. For patients, this means higher-quality, convenient care, at a lower cost.

Oak Street Health is on a mission to rebuild healthcare as it should be, which we are doing by focusing on preventive care and driving more resources into the primary care setting. ​Like traditional primary care, specialty care is broken for older adults, but together with RubiconMD, we can rebuild it into a model that meets patient needs.

In 2013, Gil and Carlos launched RubiconMD, driven by their passion for improving access to medical expertise through technology. They envisioned a solution to enable primary care physicians to virtually consult with specialists, believing this would dramatically improve the patient experience while driving down healthcare costs. They were right. Today, RubiconMD serves over 8,000 primary care clinicians, leading the way in virtual specialty care.

Growing up in India, where the majority have minimal access to basic public health services, I developed an appreciation for RubiconMD’s mission and the value of enabling access to specialty care. The mission continues to resonate with me even more as we’ve had a broader impact.
