Dr. Blackledge founded Care Practice in 2008, a clinic with a unique mission to break down the barriers put between doctors and patients by establishing accessibility, transparency, and affordability to the practice of medicine. At its inception, it was an experiment in growing a technology-driven modern medical clinic through social media platforms and word-of-mouth guerrilla marketing techniques. Dr. Blackledge and his team aim to integrate design and patient experience into a medical environment in a manner that does not require large amounts of capital and to bring doctors out of the medical office building and back to the neighborhood where they can better serve the needs of their community. Dr. Blackledge will discuss Care Practice, and the new model of health care it represents.
