Company Summary

Specialty referrals by PCPs may frequently be avoided if a patient's symptoms are first vetted algorithmically through our web-based protocols that determine and help the PCP decide if a specialty referral is necessary and/or complete. Our Program is driven by proprietary best practices algorithms for the most common diseases. The customers are healthcare insurers who will achieve significant cost savings from fewer inappropriate referrals.
