After a long career pause, I successfully found a way to return to work with a firm that allowed me to pursue my passions for business and healthcare. Alacura, an air medical transportation company backed by the PE firm Vistria, is supported by an experienced team of healthcare professionals building a new business model for air medical non-emergent and emergent transportation. By assembling a highly credentialed network of transportation providers; consolidating operational oversight for patients (bedside to bedside); and affiliating with payors (large and small) to manage benefits in an otherwise unregulated segment of healthcare, Alacura is defining the market of Medical Transportation Benefits Management. It is an approach that brings value to patients, providers, and payors alike. As more and more care moves to Centers of Excellence, and the need for flexible air transport grows, the corresponding demand for safe, high quality, patient (member) focused service will also increase. One need only read a single article about egregious charges and painful out-of- pocket costs for consumers to understand the risks we face without the control. Alacura is well-positioned to lead in this necessary and important part of healthcare service. We would love to hear from anyone with interest in learning more about Alacura.
