Beginning. Journey. Future.
Founders Rima Abdel-Massih, MD, and John Mellors, MD partnered to create Infectious Disease Connect to address the growing demand for ID expertise and expand its accessibility.
Since then, ID Connect has become a world leader in telemedical care of infectious diseases, antimicrobial stewardship, and infection control and prevention. At the heart of this success has been technological innovation, including the acquisition of ILÚM Health Solutions and its real-time decision support software. Our technology, precision medicine, and data science are paired with world-class ID physicians to effectively manage infectious diseases across the US.
At ID Connect, we strive to make people healthy, improve outcomes, and keep our communities free of infectious diseases.
To improve access and enable world-class specialized ID expertise to enrich lives and improve outcomes in a cost-effective manner with compassion, respect and integrity.
