About Us

Activate Care is a mission- and data-driven leader in proactive social risk management solutions. Our expertise and experience designing and implementing innovative care models, coupled with our cloud-based CareLink platform, helps communities across America address social drivers of health (SDOH) and create better whole-person care. 

Our Mission

We provide personalized, community-based services and tools to coordinate and address health and social needs, focusing on those most in need.

Our Vision

We envision a future where every individual is connected to equitable holistic health and social supports, contributing to the creation of thriving communities.

Our History

In 2012, our founders viewed the challenge of fragmented care from a different lens as they had experienced personal issues with navigating the healthcare system to manage their health and that of their families. Together, they created Activate Care’s technology that enables dynamic teams to communicate, coordinate, and drive cross-sector collaboration securely.

Fast forward to 2022, when our CEO, Ted Quinn, recognized that the evolving landscape demanded more innovative solutions than ever before. This realization ignited the creation of Path Assist, a pioneering venture designed to address the mounting complexities facing our most vulnerable populations.


For too long, the status quo in our healthcare system has been to screen people for mental health or social service needs, then simply refer them out to other providers in the community. Numerous peer-reviewed studies now show this fails up to 80% of people in need. It’s time to prepare for these predictable challenges to actually make a positive impact for our vulnerable populations.

Creating a Proactive Approach

Today, over a decade of extensive experience has allowed us to develop a deep understanding of the healthcare landscape and the needs of our most vulnerable populations to create a preventive, proactive approach to social care that identifies and supports individuals and families. Our turnkey solution combines our platform with a proactive social care intervention driven by community health workers.


Senior Leadership Team

At Activate Care, we are a diverse team united by common goals: to address social drivers of health, to improve health outcomes, and to increase health equity. Our team consists of public health and clinical professionals, nurses, community health workers, engineers, data scientists, and community relationship managers who are dedicated to improving the lives of those we serve. We are led by a dynamic leadership team who each have extensive healthcare experience and bring years of success cultivating innovative and effective solutions.
