PHOENIX, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, January 22, 2024 / — Dr. Bezawit Tekola and Dr. Hui Wu-Curtis are pleased to announce a strategic joint partnership that will transform the Healthcare service deliverability and profitability landscape.

The idea was born from personal experience with medical practices among the two founders, Dr. Bezawit Tekola of Suture and Dr. Hui Wu-Curtis of SupportU. “Most physicians set up their own private or group practice for flexibility in the way they practice medicine to have opportunities for deeper relationships with patients and their communities. They focus on patient care, not running a business. As a patient, I’ve experienced service challenges and difficulties such as not receiving a callback or having my call answered to make an appointment,” says Dr. Wu-Curtis.

Suture’s founder, Dr. Bezawit Tekola, a practicing gastroenterologist in the Virginia area, saw firsthand how much money goes toward managing her and her partners’ practices. “A large part of our cost in running our medical practices is the administrative costs with people, technology, and inefficient processes, which leads to rework, errors that may impact patient care, employee burnout, and ultimately lost revenue,” states Dr. Tekola. Experts at Standford School of Medicine say that “administrative complexity within the United States healthcare system could contribute to a staggering $265 billion in waste annually” (Laurie Flynn, 2022).

“This strategic joint venture will provide services that look at the administrative functions as a whole. It’s striking that balance with the interactions of people, processes, and technology to improve service delivery and experience, removes inefficiencies, and drives greater profitability.” Dr. Wu-Curtis, founder of SupportU. The “Healthcare Support-as-a-Service” (HSaaS) model and concept, as jointly envisioned by Dr. Tekola and Dr. Wu-Curtis, ensures a comprehensive and streamlined system focused on operational efficiencies and expense management with minimal assets.

Both companies, Suture and SupportU, share a strong common culture, values, and mission to create employment opportunities for people in our underserved communities and countries. Creating a workplace that embraces diversity and inclusion allows everyone to grow personally and professionally. Each founder, being a female minority in their respective industries, faced many challenges. Their company will help open doors for job opportunities for the community they will serve in. Both are committed to better healthcare service throughout a patient’s journey.

“Our joint venture disrupts the healthcare norm, addressing administrative inefficiencies with a socially responsible touch. We streamline processes, prioritize patient care, and boost profitability, all while creating unconventional solutions for a healthier future.” – Dr. Bezawit Tekola, Founder of Suture
