The global response to the COVID-19 pandemic is at a critical point and requires unprecedented coordination. We are building a framework for data-driven discussions and shared learnings to help people have a greater impact at their respective local, state, national level in collaboration with their organizations and governmental agencies. Our efforts are aimed at enabling more rapid dissemination of information to improve patient outcomes. Our goal is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, best practices, and lessons learned to support the people and organizations that are tasked with problem solving at the local level across the globe. There remain many unanswered questions in regards to the clinical, operational and financial aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the process of answering these critical questions, we are building a new framework while simultaneously laying the foundation for global triage support, improved access to health care services and clinical research.
why us why us
With the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s been a renewed interest in infectious diseases and how we can use technology to help people. We know you’ve been flooded with communications about COVID-19—some trying to simply help, some trying to capitalize on the situation, and others somewhere in between. As you consider your involvement in the COVID-19 pandemic, both from meeting your personal health needs as well as possibly participating in the global efforts to combat the coronavirus, you have an abundance of choices of people and organizations to serve you.
As you explore your options, here are a few things to think about:
1. The doctor-patient relationship
2. Improving access and quality of care
3. Improving patient, doctor and nurse experience
4. Lowering costs for patients, doctors and governments
Through triage services, we help patients to get the right care, at the right place, at the right time through virtual healthcare services and high quality preferred clinics and hospitals. Our Hippocratic Coin alternative payment model helps patients and doctors to earn money through our shared savings program, dividends and monetizing their data (if they opt in). Governments can save money through better alignment with patients and doctors. During this unprecedented time, consider the history of the people and organizations you chose to serve you.
