Episode 28: Would you get your eyes checked where you buy your shampoo? Jeremy Kirsch and Steven Wisch of Network Eye bet you will — and they’re bringing eye care to the masses at your local retailer
In the last five years, retail care has grown 200%, giving patients a more accessible and affordable pathway to preventive primary care outside of the traditional practice model. Is specialty care the next frontier for retail medicine? Network Eye CEO Jeremy Kirsch and Executive Chairman Steven Wisch join Justin to discuss how their company is using AI to bring ophthalmology into the retail setting, make diagnosis faster and less expensive, and blaze trails for other specialties in the retail care space.
Justin, Jeremy, and Steven examine how retail care and AI can get higher-risk patients into the care continuum earlier and keep them out of the emergency room. They also explore the mutual benefits of partnerships between medical specialists and retailers, the role of retail care under the transition toward value-based care, and why the retail model ultimately elevates—not replaces—private practices.
