Addition of experienced healthcare financial executive marks a critical milestone on Call9's journey to making elder care value-based

BROOKLYN, N.Y., April 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Call9, a quickly growing Brooklyn startup,

announced today the hiring of Rachel Amalfitano as its new chief financial officer. Amalfitano was formerly chief financial officer at VillageCare, driving growth at one of the city's largest elder care organizations. Amalfitano has also held financial leadership positions at large New York-based managed care organizations over the past 17 years. She is expected to serve Call9 well as the company seeks to realize its value-based care vision to improve care for nursing home patients.

"The idea of loving those we serve—from patients to payors—is woven into the fabric of Call9," said Dr. Timothy C. Peck, Cofounder and CEO of Call9. "Rachel's experience in leading financial and healthcare programs in New York will be indispensable as we continue to expand and realize the enormous opportunity to deliver greater patient care at reduced costs to the healthcare system."

Call9 powers a sophisticated, high-touch technology platform and multi-disciplinary healthcare service, which delivers care to nursing home patients at their bedside. The company embeds highly-skilled clinical care specialists on-site, in nursing homes, giving patients 24/7 real-time access to Emergency Medicine physicians and specialists, without brick and mortar limitations. Call9 defines new standards and measures of value for telemedicine, pulling the industry toward a new care category.

"Call9's mission to transform emergency care in a way that benefits patients, insurance companies and caregivers truly excites me," Amalfitano said. "I look forward to applying my expertise as Call9 sets out to serve ever more nursing homes and caregiving opportunities."

In addition to extensive experience in the healthcare industry and across all corporate accounting disciplines, Amalfitano has lead successful business transactions and subsequent integrations, including an initial public offering. Amalfitano started her career at Deloitte, where several of her clients were startup technology companies.

"We couldn't be happier to have Rachel join our team at Call9," Peck said. "With her experience managing the transition of program revenue sources from Medicaid fee-for-service to managed care, she is a great fit for Call9's value-based care vision."
