Solv

Convenient care is the future of how you get better.

And that's the future we're building with Solv.

Our mission

Empower consumers to simplify their day-to-day healthcare needs.

Something is working in healthcare today–convenient care. This year, roughly 170 million people in the U.S. will receive quality, same-day convenient care on their schedule and on their terms. They’ll visit an urgent care clinic in their neighborhood, walk into a retail clinic at the drugstore or speak with a doctor on a video call from the comfort of their homes.

What’s incredible is that convenient, high-quality healthcare is shifting consumer expectations–today, 3 out of 4 consumers will not choose a doctor who can’t see them within one week. This demand for a better day-to-day healthcare experience now accounts for nearly 20% of ambulatory visits per year. And, it’s causing much of the healthcare industry to take note.

Yet still, lack of transparent, clear information and common consumer technologies makes it nearly impossible for you to feel like you can make a simple or fully informed healthcare decision. Calling around to multiple offices, waiting months for an appointment, spending hours in a waiting room, and struggling to understand your insurance is still very much the norm.

That's where Solv comes in. We partner with high-quality providers across the country who share our goal of making access to high-quality convenient care simple, friendly and transparent for consumers, the way it should be. We equip them with technology that improves the quality of your service and the performance of their practice. For consumers, we get them in front of a provider in just a few taps, by helping them know where they can go, when they’ll be seen, and how much it will cost. We are building a world where we can all access healthcare that is convenient and affordable.

How we do it

We create ideas that bring convenient, high-quality healthcare to a diverse population.
