“We are delivering care to the home, meeting patients where they are, and offering a more convenient healthcare experience,” says Eddie Peloke, CEO of Workpath. In an era where anything and everything is getting delivered to your doorstep, having glaring limitations within healthcare services, access, and convenience for patients is what motivated Workpath to seize this opportunity to solve this problem. Workpath’s robust platform allays problems related to laboratory and clinical visits such as delayed responses, misinformation, and miscommunications between healthcare specialists and patients. Patients, especially those who have travel limitations, can now access healthcare services without the need to pay a visit to a medical facility or institution.
Workpath’s offering is built on its vast and deep network of healthcare specialists, which allows their customers — digital health companies, laboratories, clinical trial providers, and healthcare systems — to easily dispatch phlebotomists and nurses to a patient’s home. Workpath’s platform handles all the processes systematically, particularly the scheduling and dispatching of healthcare specialists, and delivers a better and more seamless experience for customers and patients.
“We had approximately 150,000 appointments completed through our platform last year alone,” says Peloke. Workpath runs on a payper- appointment basis, with the workflow beginning as soon as the customer enters the patient’s relevant information onto the platform.
Workpath’s expansive specialist network covers over 80 percent of patients in the U.S. Among the company’s many customer segments, clinical trial providers benefit greatly from their services. As clinical trials are limited to a specific facility or a health system, they require the participants to reach the facility for blood sampling. However, with Workpath’s platform making it possible to collect samples and specimens from all across the country, clinical trial providers have the ability to drastically increase their participant pool with a more diverse population, garner more accurate and representative trial outcomes.

Workpath serves many healthcare use-cases with blood and specimen collection, including meaningful case studies for cancer patients, fertility patients, and older populations. Spurred by its success with phlebotomy and vaccines, the company plans to expand its services to nursing assistance and eventually to mobile imaging and mobile ultrasound. While continuing to actively collaborate with large health systems, Peloke shares his plan to expand the services provided on Workpath’s platform and make healthcare more comfortable at home.
