Their platform makes localized recommendations for treatment, quarantine and other actions. They collect data at the local level and aggregate it into state and national trends.

  • Reduced Clinical Variation:

Zipnosis’ clinical algorithms have helped achieve ~ 90% adherence to clinical guidelines for over a decade. Using proven systems, not individuals, leads to more consistent outcomes, especially as visit volume scales.

  • Keeps patients out of clinic:

Patients with mild illness who may be infectious are able to be treated from home via asynchronous virtual care. Stopping patients exposure to more serious infections in the public or in clinic, and be less likely to infect others.

  • Patient education within the protocols:
