Providence Business News conducted a Q&A with Sebastiaan Foppema, the CEO and general manager of instED, an at-home urgent care program available to Commonwealth Care Alliance members. The service, which launched in Massachusetts in 2014, recently expanded to Rhode Island. It is aimed at reducing unnecessary hospital visits by providing a convenient and comfortable way to request urgent care in the home.
“As we build our presence in Rhode Island, our goal is to partner with additional local insurers so that we can make our service available to as many Rhode Islanders as possible. As someone who has lived here in Rhode Island for the last 20-plus years, I was particularly excited to have the opportunity to work on this expansion,” he said.
