Ro co-founder and CEO Zachariah Reitano said: “Ro is the only company to combine a nationwide telemedicine, pharmacy distribution, and in-home care network.

“Through this vertically integrated platform we’re making high-quality care available when and where patients need it, with no insurance required so patients are the ones in control. We’re powering a patient revolution, and we’re just getting started.”

In December 2020, the company acquired Workpath software platform. This deal allowed Ro to integrate virtual and in-home care delivery on its vertically-integrated platform.

The company’s Covid-19 Vaccine Drive programme, which was recently introduced, is currently active in select Yonkers zip codes in New York.

Recently, it has also collaborated with healthcare AI company Gauss to provide the latter’s smartphone-powered, at-home Covid-19 rapid antigen tests on its platform.
