ZocDoc, co-founded by Dr. Oliver Kharraz, M.D., and Cyrus Massoumi, ’03 BUS, announced a new partnership with Mayor Bill de Blasio as part of WorkWell NYC. This new wellness initiative is aimed to help the City’s approximately 1.2 million employees, retirees (and their dependents) get healthy and stay healthy. This partnership will leverage ZocDoc’s digital health platform to empower individuals on NYC’s healthcare plan to quickly and seamlessly access in-network primary and preventive care providers across all five boroughs. As part of this same initiative, starting July 1 2016, all EmblemHealth preventive care visits and procedures will be reduced to a $0 copay.
“We are proud to partner with Mayor de Blasio and WorkWell NYC to empower past and present City employees and their families to get the care they need and deserve,” said Kharraz. “Far too often, antiquated systems get in the way of good care, and we applaud the City for embracing innovative solutions that modernize the healthcare experience.” REST OF STORY
