About Us

Kathleen Stevison Schmelka MD, MPH


Kate is in her sixteenth year of Emergency Medicine practice after graduating with her Medical Doctor/Master of Public Health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1998. She founded KSSC LLC in 2015 as her interests expanded beyond individual patient care to healthcare related innovations, products and services aimed at improving efficiency in the delivery of high quality, low cost patient care.

With 18% of the GDP currently healthcare, and unremarkable statistics on health and wellness in the US population, there is significant room for improvement in patient care. For years, Kate has appreciated in day to day practice the ways in which the current system is unable to manage large populations in an effective, cost efficient manner. Her focus outside of clinical medicine has been to innovate ways to provide these populations effective and efficient care with better outcomes, at a lower expense to the system.
