WELL enters the market of home healthcare services. The global home healthcare market is growing with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8%, and will exceed 517 billion USD by 2025, according to GrandView report. A growing geriatric population and the rapid rise of conditions requiring long-term care are driving this growth. Primary care is shifting to telehealth at an unprecedented pace. The global telehealth market may reach $113 billion by 2025 (18.3% CAGR), according to a report by Grand View Research, Inc. The main competitors of WELL are local players, such as Teledoc in the US, Chunyu Yisheng in China, or Doc+ in Russia, with a long-lasting local market expertise.
WELL started in 2015 as an on-demand healthcare platform connecting physical, occupational and speech therapists with healthcare organizations and patients. By 2017, it had the largest therapist network in California. WELL has conducted over 13,000 patient therapy visits, serving more than 1,600 patients. Since its inception, WELL has generated nearly $1 million in billable services. For comparison, at the beginning of 2017 in the Russian MedBox 60,000 private patient rooms were already registered, more than 50,000 doctors were available, more than 1.5 million records were received through the service (site and mobile application) to the medical staff. Given that in Russia the telemedicine market does not yet have a clear legislation, unlike the US market, such indicators of WELL indicate that the company occupies only a small part of the US market and will have severe competition with large local players not only abroad, but also in the USA. In 2017, WELL introduced MVP of its telemedicine platform and started servicing multiple healthcare organizations in the U.S. The use of Blockchain and the proceeds from the token sale are aimed to enhance these technological capabilities. In the near future, WELL aims to expand its services, adding more languages (5 current), more payment options, Blockchain integration, and International expansion.
The founder and CEO of Well - Ildar Fazulyanov - has strong experience but it is mainly related to the area of finance, not healthcare. Co-founder's experience is also mainly focused on finance, fintech and private equity, not medicine. According to Development TL's experience on Linkedin, he is not currently employed at Well. Moreover, he resides in Bankok, Thailand, not in Los Angeles as the rest of the team. The only industry expert in the core team is Dr. Matthew Lefferman who has 16+ years of practicing experience To sum up, the business development part of the team is quite strong, while it seems that WLL lacks technical and industry expertise.
WELL aims to earn from several areas: Transactions: A small fee on each transaction covers the marginal cost of that transaction and commitment to our charitable mission. Ancillary Services: As a global healthcare marketplace, WELL will earn fees from services such as translations, pharmacy orders, partnerships, trials, access to training, de-identified data, and access to de-identified health histories. WELL will share these fees with patients and doctors who opt to participate in data-sharing programs. Remote Patient Monitoring: WELL offers its solution for chronic conditions and pain management. We provide connected devices like iPads and other sensors and have medical practitioners on call. Clients pay monthly or annual subscriptions for themselves or their loved ones. Network Access: Base access to the platform will be free or minimum cost. Larger and more complex medical organizations will pay for software implementation and customization.
