Startups like Papa, which pairs elderly people with ‘grandkids on demand’ to help them with common tasks like grocery shopping, could be the future of healthcare. Here’s an inside look at how it works.

The gig economy is coming for healthcare.

Startups like Papa, which provides “grandkids on demand” to seniors, hire mostly young part-time workers as outside contractors to help with chores, troubleshoot technology issues, or just sit and talk with seniors, many of whom have remained isolated during the coronavirus pandemic.

Big technology companies like Uber and Instacart popularized the gig model, but contract workers are nothing new in the world of home healthcare. With the advent of the gig economy, new home care startups have become empowered to introduce more flexibility and cost-savings into the industry by relying on a constantly rotating cast of always-on workers accessible via an app. 

Business Insider spoke with nine Papa Pals, as Papa’s fleet of on-demand grandkids are called, and Papa founder and CEO Andrew Parker to get a sense for what it’s like to work as a gig worker in healthcare during a pandemic.

Most joined this summer after hearing friends’ positive experiences working with Papa, but others have worked for Papa on and off for years as they finished up school or managed their outside obligations. Business Insider reached out to Pals independently in addition to three conversations with Pals that were facilitated by Papa.

Here’s the inside look of what it’s like to work as a Papa Pal.

The Pals shared a near-unanimous belief that they were doing good through their work providing companionship on-demand to elderly individuals. Many said they would continue calling or running errands once the pandemic subsides.

Others voiced some concerns with not being able to schedule shifts in advance, an issue Parker said an updated version of the app will address later this year. 

There is also some concern among experts that the gig model won’t be sustainable once the pandemic ends if health plans don’t see enough impact to warrant continued support of this type of care.

As Some States Brace For Next Lockdown, The Fashion And Celebrity Set Embrace Luxury Healthcare

The concept of luxury has been on shifting sands for some time but the era of COVID has redefined it completely, particularly for the fashion and Hollywood set. With the Los Angeles and New York social scenes effectively in quarantine, it’s not the latest it-bag or see-and-be-seen restaurant trendsetters, celebrities and influencers are taking to, it’s healthcare—luxury’s last frontier.

In this emerging space, luxury is created through a nuanced combination of access and availability combined with touchpoints that reflect discernment and thoughtfulness to deliver a practical-yet-unparalleled experience. 

Members-only private ER and medical concierge service, Sollis Health, is leading the charge in this highly-experiential arena where Chuck Close artwork hangs on the walls and instead of US Weekly, it’s the Paris Review members are enjoying. More importantly, Sollis Health offers its clients what the taxed healthcare system in the US fails to—immediacy and advocacy.

Amongst its membership are A-list celebrities like Sienna Miller, Frieda Pinto, and Chris Rock, the last of which is so passionate about Sollis’s mission he publicly donated to their PPE drive earlier this year. Fashion stars like Julia von Boehm and Chelsea Leyland have also joined. Sollis Health’s boldfaced membership should hardly be a surprise as the medical concierge service was co-founded by Dr. Bernard Kruger, a 30-year staple of the Upper East Side medical community and doctor to Ben Stiller, Sting, Ralph Lauren and Bono. 

A 24-hour medical center with locations in New York City, the Hamptons, and now, Beverly Hills, Sollis Health’s facilities are everything one would expect of a luxury emergency room and medical center. 

Quantitatively, they are staffed with ER physicians and equipped with advanced diagnostic imaging capabilities such as MRI, CT, Ultrasound and X-ray scans, as well as a comprehensive lab all onsite. Their members appreciate zero wait times to see a doctor upon arrival as compared to the national average ER wait time of more than an hour and a half to get into a room, two and a quarter hours until being discharged, and a 54-minute wait for pain medication if a patient enters an ER with a broken bone or similar injury. The convenience factor is upped through its house call service which makes up 50% of Sollis Health’s volume according to the company’s Chief Commercial Officer, Sabine Heller. 

“I was exposed to COVID and somebody came to the house to test me and my children,” explains celebrity stylist and InStyle Magazine’s Fashion Director, Julia von Boehm. “Which is why I subscribed. Because I feel reticent to take my children into an overcrowded place to see a doctor or get tested and I find it less stressful to go into a small clinic. I also find it very practical they have a lot of things on the spot, like tests or
