Waymark is a team of healthcare providers, technologists, and builders whose mission is to bring the best healthcare to Medicaid populations. Guided by the communities we serve, we bring support and technology-enabled care to help primary care providers keep Medicaid patients healthy. We are building the tools and designing an approach to enable care to reach the patients who can benefit most.
We value humility, focus, and inclusiveness, recognizing that bringing together a community oriented team, with diverse experiences, is key to our success. We are inspired to tackle the challenges ahead, and optimistic believers in the ability to transform Medicaid delivery through partnership and perseverance.
