Our Story & Our Team

Stat is re-imagining healthcare. With a simple tap, the Stat smartphone app matches patients with a licensed CNA, HHA, doctor, nurse, or medical transport - allowing aides, doctors and medical transports the ability to reduce idle or downtime, while earning up to 50% more income.

Stat is the fastest, easiest and safest way to have your patient transported or find care anywhere, anytime. With Stat you can request a healthcare professional or medical transport for a patient from across town, for your mom in another state, and soon, from across the world. During the request you can follow the transport on your map through our GPS tracking feature and call, text or video call your healthcare professional at anytime.

To make sure your we keep our high quality service, all healthcare workers and transport companies are vetted for safety, quality and under go random spot checks. Our driver ratings after each request ensure ongoing high quality.

Launched in July 2013, Stat is currently operating in Philadelphia and Austin - and will soon be expanding. Through Stat’s network of healthcare professionals and medical transport companies, multiple Stat requests are accepted from across the country, every hour.

Founded by a pediatrician, a 20-year veteran paramedic and two startup gurus, Stat is backed by DreamIt Ventures and its founding team.

Rick, once a Fire Chief, has been a firefighter and paramedic for more than 20 years and has saved countless lives. He has also been an entrepreneur for more than 10 years. At Stat, Rick spends most of his time validating new features for the dispatching platform and product designing the super secret next generation 911 project.

Besides owing a large sprinkler company, Rick spends his free time as the president of his towns’ firefighters union – training other firefighters, educating his towns’ citizens on how to prevent fires and installing smoke detectors for the elderly.

Our Story

In 2007 Jason, Stat’s CEO, found himself in the position of saving two people’s lives. On the first occasion he performed CPR on a man in sudden cardiac arrest and on the second, he called 911 for a man who had driven off a cliff.

On both occasions the ambulances took more than the national standard of 8 minutes to arrive. Plus, on one occasion, because of a miscommunication between the caller and the 911 dispatcher, the wrong ambulance was sent – a BLS (Basic Life Support) was sent instead of an ALS (Advanced Life Support) for the heart attack patient.

After experiencing the hiccups in the current 911 dispatching system – delayed ambulance response times and their reliance on a single dispatching channel that hasn’t changed in 30 years – Jason soon realized non-emergency transports had some of the same issues as emergency transports. So, he decided to fix both, by building Stat with a group of colleagues.
