Health care is complex—even when you’re an expert. Let’s give patients a helping hand.
Recent research of health systems executives indicates cost transparency as a primary challenge they want to address. One of the top ways they want to use to improve transparency is through patient engagement. Better patient engagement has proven to boost satisfaction, lower business risk and improve financials for health systems. Where does it all start? By helping people make smarter health care choices before they even get to the doctor’s office or clinic.
Most people do their own health care research online, but generic information on providers, specialties and office locations isn’t enough. People need personalized information and guidance to the best options—from the doctor’s office to urgent care to telehealth—based on their medical situation, provider availability, insurance coverage and provider preferences. That’s where we come in.
