Clinical insight with a human touch
Patient-physician matching is exponentially more effective and scalable with data science, but the process still requires human oversight.
We apply machine learning to our patient-physician matching algorithms. Then, we leverage our clinical human navigators’ expertise in selecting and matching physician profiles. Our navigators provide the heartbeat to our business and personalized advocacy whenever patients need it.
"Getting the right patient to the right doctor the first time is a critical aspect of healthcare today"

How exactly do we define quality?
How many pancreaticoduodenectomies performed per year (and complication rate) are acceptable for us to recommend a surgeon for Pancreatic Cancer? What kind of specialist should we recommend for Gestational Diabetes?
To answer these questions, we use evidence-based medicine to define quality. Then we leverage voluminous amounts of data to determine qualifications or experience.
We leverage all published evidence-based guidelines along with the experience of internal and external subject matter experts, including our Clinical Advisory Board, to define and maintain definitions of quality & qualifications at the specialty, sub-specialty and condition level, which we translate into ontologies and algorithms on our data science platform.
