About our project

The problem we solve:
<50% patients get preventive care they need, resulting in poor quality scores and financial penalties for physicians, under value-based care. Because <7% use patient portals, clinics send postcard reminders to patients. Usually, patient sees such reminders in the evening. But by that time , the clinic is closed, making postcard reminders only marginally effective, at best.

About our solution:
SimplifiMed consumes gaps in care report, directly from the EHR and communicates with the patients using SMS in natural language (English/Spanish). If the patient indicates that they have already received that care elsewhere or decline the care, it is recorded in the EHR. On the other hand, if patient decides to schedule the visit, an appointment is made directly in the EHR.
Progress to date:

We have a fully developed product that went live in Jul 2017. We are partner with Epic and Athenahealth and currently working on partnerships with GE and Allscripts.

How We Help Patients

SimplifiMed chatbot starts with a nudge for preventive services mimics patient-receptionist communication. Because SimplifiMed uses gaps in care data from EHR, patient is not bombarded with generic messages. 

By enabling patients to respond and schedule preventive services any time of the day, SimplifiMed helps them stay healthy in short term (e.g. Flu) as well as long-term (e.g. Colon/Breast Cancer).

 

How We Help Physicians

<50% patients get the preventive serices they need. Not only physicians are leaving nearly $375/patient/year revenue on the table, they are also getting dinged on quality scores, under value-based care. 

SimplifiMed helps clinics nudge patients to get preventive care. If the patient declines or states that she got that care elsewhere, we help clinics update the record so that they don't get penalty. On the other hand, if patient decides to get the preventive care, we help them schedule the care. This improves revenue as well as quality score for the clinic.


How We Help Hospitals

If the hospital or health system has ambulatory care or participate in risk-based contract such as ACO, they will benefit by improvement in quality score (ACO bonus) as well as lower cost.

Thank You

The reason you did not get preventive services (vaccination, annuals, etc) is because you got notified in the following two ways:

1. A postcard in your mail, asking you to call the clinic during normal business hours to schedule the visit. Because you are a busy person, you forget to call the clinic. Even when you call, you hang up after waiting 15 minutes on phone.

2. An email that your doctor has sent you a "secure message". You never check the secure message because like rest 93% Americans, you find patient portals very difficult.

Now imagine, if you get an SMS notification from your child's doctor, informing you that it's time to get flu shot and asking you if you would like your child to get one at their clinic. If you answer yes, it immediately shows you available appointments and you are done booking an appointment under 30 seconds. Moreover, because it is SMS, you don't need to respond immediately. You can respond to it later in the evening after you have discussed with your spouse. No need to call the clinic during normal office hours, wait on the phone, or spell your name one letter at a time. 

Now imagine that you can book an appointment or request a medication refill, the same way. By texting to your clinic 24/7. Without downloading an app or entering a password. 

Thats what SimplifiMed does. Just help you connect with the clinic so that you can get the care you need hassel-free.

    A terrific example of a tool that usefully offloads routine from clinicians--doctors and nurses--who no longer need to prompt patients and parents to do the right thing for their care and disease prevention.
