Who is Assured Medical Alliance?
Assured Medical Alliance, LLC (AMA) specializes in providing technology to the healthcare industry. We provide equipment purchase or rentals, in-home logistic services and consulting services. Our experts have over 100 years of combined experience in business, technology and medicine. Let us help your organization research and develop a vital sign monitoring program, educate staff on the latest trends in preventing readmissions or helping seniors stay in their homes longer, or any other technology solution that can be implemented for a competitive advantage.
How did this get started?
AMA was formed when fellow classmates at Baldwin-Wallace College's MBA - Entrepreneur program, Michael Pistillo and Jack Richards combined two potential businesses into one. Jack's idea was called "Grandmother's Kitchen" which would be a central repository for all things related to an elderly family member, friend or neighbor. Anyone that has taken care of a loved one knows that it is not easy to keep track of the patient's medical history, physician information, lists of medications, etc. Michael saw a Discovery Health TV show about remote patient monitoring and knew from his technology background that this was going to be the wave of the future. Through many "Voice of the Customer" sessions with small home care agencies, Michael and Jack realized there was a serious need for these services (among others) by small to medium home care agencies. That is when Assured Medical Alliance was formed. Assured Medical Alliance has evolved into the company it is today, forming partnerships with our customers and investing the necessary time and effort to ensure that your business is successful and grows.
Pat Ginley served as AMA's informal medical advisor for years. Finally in 2015, Pat offically joined AMA as their Chief Medical Officer.
How is AMA Different?
At AMA, we strieve to be the best possible partner by understanding your business inside and out. We will always do the right thing even if it means we may not make as much money as we could have. We understand that if we help your organization grow, then ours will too.
We have spent countless hours researching and evaluating monitoring products available in the marketplace. When existing products or their intended use does not fit our needs perfectly, we re-engineered them to meet our needs as evidenced by the first PC and tablet-based kiosk for Ideal Life.
