MDee - Destination Health


Our podcast discussion today between Michael Andrade and two practicing surgeons, Dr. Ethel Guinto, Chief Medical Officer and Dr. David Ancona, Co-Founder of MDee.  Dr. Guinto – Medical Director Primary Role as Medical Director is to make sure MDee has the right mix of quality providers and facilities to serve the needs of their patient population.   Dr. David Ancona is an Ophthalmologist, retina surgeon, and spent some time studying in Philadelphia and one of the most renowned ocular facilities in the world.  Both doctors are incredibly gifted as surgeons and it was their own experiences of working in the US, abroad, and then in their own home country where the idea of MDee was born.  They are discerning doctors and their experience, expertise and familiarity with US medicine highly influenced how MDee works to solve quality, access, and cost problems.

MDee embraces the notion of medical tourism or destination health but they’ve built a model that’s a little different from the norm in this space.  They’ve built a collaborative panel of specialists for a variety of common and complex treatments to help individuals navigate healthcare options that are as good as you can get in the US, but won’t break your bank.  The quality control and basis of physicians and surgeons that make up MDee undergo significant rigor.

During our podcast we discuss the foundation of MDee, the problem they solve, and also the logistics of patient care.  If you’ve ever thought about how to manage your healthcare costs through cost efficient high quality.  The heart of their program is embedded in the notion that healthcare should be familiar, should include the highest performing doctors, and also shouldn’t cause an individual to spend their life savings to get the care they need.
