Pam Mathews

Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder

Pamela Mathews is a seasoned healthcare professional with more than 25 years of experience consulting with home health services and equipment providers, Management Services Organizations (MSOs), Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities (ALFs/SNFs), as well as various physician groups. Ms. Mathews has a deep understanding of the current healthcare system and what it takes to achieve success by creating medical care products, offerings and developing strategic business relationships. She has held executive level positions, including Sr. Vice President roles, in business development, marketing, sales and territory management for several healthcare providers.

A highly effective businesswoman with a penchant for building close working relationships with physician clients, Ms. Mathews started a successful home doctor’s services company focused on ALFs and SNFs. She continued to evolve her company’s offerings by founding and growing a telemedicine company, DocsConnect. The company was established to optimize care for all patients, at all times, and at all locations by trained physicians. Its goal is to provide flexibility into the patient care process, while also avoiding hospitalizations and re-hospitalizations. Her telemedicine vision helps patients and organizations access affordable healthcare if they are uninsured, have high deductibles, high co-payments or do not have access to doctors.

Ms. Mathews quickly identified the scalability of telemedicine by providing doctor networks and patient groups with the technology to provide and receive needed medical advice virtually. Currently, PMGlobalholdings services both domestic and global demands for healthcare with thousands of physicians and contracts that represent millions of patients worldwide. PMGlobalholdings holds an exclusive contract with the AIMIS group. Ms. Mathews has made this possible through her strategic abilities.
