Why We Invested
While healthcare advancements continue at a rapid pace, addressing foundational needs like housing has often been overlooked. With Ounce, we see a groundbreaking synergy between housing and health, ensuring residents not only have a place to call home but also access to comprehensive health resources. Ounce’s approach fills a critical gap in the healthcare ecosystem, and we’re excited to be part of this transformative journey.
Empowering healthy and thriving communities by building bridges between housing and health. Ounce provides on-site care coordination and wraparound services to residents of affordable housing.
“There is an enormous gap between health plans and where their members spend over 70 percent of their time – their homes. Our highly trained team leverages technology to conveniently engage people where they are, deliver impactful services, and lower healthcare costs for residents and insurers. The trusted relationships, the convenience of our services, all delivered within the existing community infrastructure – plus our integration with the properties and our proximity to residents gives us the opportunity to quickly intervene when we see red flags like eviction notices or other indicators for housing instability, which has clear links to healthcare outcomes.”
