RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Iggbo, a modern care coordination platform for the healthcare industry, announced

today that it will unveil a new network of brick-and-mortar care locations around the country. Launched in 2015, Iggbo enables anyone involved in care delivery to aggregate their solutions, services, and labor in one place. The expansion of Iggbo's network
will provide its healthcare partners an opportunity to combine the company's patented technology with physical site locations for specimen collection and other care services that can save money and improve convenience.

Since its launch, Iggbo has served over 1,300 U.S. cities with on-demand specimen collection and other care in the homes of patients, in physician offices, and other convenient locations. Iggbo will operate its new brick-and-mortar care locations in over 40 major markets in the first phase of its expansion.

Participating partners can now leverage Iggbo's brick-and-mortar network in key cities as a way to offer their patients added convenience at a lower price than mobile specimen collection. Care locations offered in the Iggbo network, combined with the company's award-winning Procedure Intelligence technology, are designed to help improve the efficiency and logistics of every care experience.

Iggbo offers a user-friendly tool, found at www.iggbo.com/carelocations, for customers to quickly locate a care location in their area. Alternatively, doctors and labs can use the platform to locate a care location and schedule for a patient to streamline the process. 

"Our goal is to deliver thousands of care solutions at the customer's fingertips," said Nuno Valentine, co-founder and CEO of Iggbo. "To make this possible, our technology can now coordinate point of care so that it occurs at the right time and place. Iggbo can improve the reach and efficiency of diagnostic laboratories, health systems, and more through our new care locations, mobile solutions, and other care options using one tool to manage it all."

On the Iggbo dashboard, partners placing a request for a healthcare service and the healthcare labor provider can keep track of every stage of an appointment no matter where it is delivered. Iggbo provides real-time information about the status of each appointment—when it is accepted and confirmed, when a specialist is on the way, and when a blood draw or other care service is started and completed.

Powering Iggbo's network are independent healthcare labor providers who use the company's technology to connect with laboratories, health systems, and other organizations seeking talent to fill a variety of healthcare needs. Iggbo's platform aggregates healthcare jobs from multiple sources and displays these opportunities in one place. Healthcare organizations set the price for each service they need and then choose the qualified labor groups that will see the appointment opportunity (either their own W2 labor or the vetted contractors they have authorized). 

"Using Iggbo's technology, healthcare organizations can automate their process for procuring, dispatching, tracking, and paying their healthcare labor," said Valentine. "We give healthcare leaders a way to digitally manage their own internal workforce on one platform, or they can connect with other high-quality labor groups to complete their services. From there, our partners can digitally dispatch a specialist to a patient's home, a physician's office, or to our new network of care locations around the country."
