It is that yawning gap in service that ex-Uber Health leader Dan Trigub and partner Inna Plumb are targeting with a new company called MedArrive, which was launched out of stealth mode Thursday. The startup will use paramedics and EMTs to deliver home-based care — from vaccinations and diagnostic testing to fall prevention —  under the remote supervision of physicians. It plans to begin providing services early next year.
