Co-founder and CEO, Tomorrow Health
Vijay Kedar often finds inspiration in crises.
Kedar’s struggle to arrange home-based care for his mother following a hospitalization for a lung disease inspired him to start the New York City-based technology company. Founded in 2019, Tomorrow Health coordinates the delivery of medical equipment, supplies and healthcare to patients in their homes. In 2020, another crisis—the COVID-19 pandemic—prompted Kedar to move up Tomorrow Health’s launch by three months as a tsunami of patients needed in-home care.
“It was a bit of a wild ride for the team, but in so many ways sort of reinforced our mission as a company,” Kedar said. “It was sort of the ideal way for us to get off the ground.”

These days, Kedar leads a team of more than 100 Tomorrow Health employees who help coordinate the delivery of home-based care to 2 million patients across 50 states. The company partners with thousands of healthcare providers, health insurers and suppliers, which Kedar said ensures patients receive the right medical equipment, supplies and care in a timely manner.
Kedar said he wants Tomorrow Health to become “the technology layer” that rests on top of the $250 billion home-based care industry. For that to happen, he plans to rely on staff with expertise in areas he lacks, as well as insights from patients, providers and payers.
“We have to have our ear to the ground constantly learning from our customers,” Kedar said.
