About us

Medmo makes imaging easy

Patients often wait longer, travel farther, and pay more than they need to. Usually, high-quality care is right around the corner but as a patient it’s hard to know what your options are. We are on a mission to make the imaging process easier to navigate so patients get the best care and know what to do next after their appointment.

The imaging market also creates challenges for imaging providers and ordering physicians. We often identify opportunities in the market to lower administrative burden, improve patient adherence and drive efficiencies in imaging center capacity management.
