Providing underserved Americans with access to specialty health care.
Imagine being diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, or another chronic illness, and being unable to see the specialist you need. This is simply reality for more than 30 million people in the United States.
While many receive essential primary care services from safety net clinics—a critical front line in our health care system—numerous barriers keep specialty care out of reach, including:
Long Wait Times for Appointments
Lack of Childcare or Transportation
How does MAVEN Project help? MAVEN Project’s digital platform connects safety net clinic providers with experienced specialists for consultations, mentoring, and education. As a result, patients at safety net clinics receive prompt, high-quality specialty care.
Who We Are
MAVEN Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to correcting social, racial, and economic inequities in the health care system through the power of telemedicine.
Our all-volunteer corps of specialist physicians averages decades of clinical experience at the highest levels and is united by determination to support frontline providers and broaden access to specialty care.
What We Do
We support safety net clinics and their patients by connecting clinic providers and veteran specialists via telehealth technology.
Our physician volunteers guide, teach, encourage, and collaborate with clinical staff to empower them to deliver comprehensive care, relieve burnout, and build healthier communities.
