Purpose and goal

Our objective is to increase patient engagement in their health care. Our goal is to increase the accessibility of primary care for all of our patients.

Expected results and effects

Increased efficiency having patients who transfer their own vitals. Increased accessibility through reduction of visits made by chronic care patients. Increased quality through enhanced collection of data points which will result in better medical evaluation. Increased equitable care through use of algorithm that bypasses stigmatization of the patients based on their origin, gender or age. The above effects are expected to result in better attraction of the primary care for listing new patients and for recruitment of new employees.
