Directive Health

There have been barriers to whole-patient treatment for years in the medical system. Communication and transparency have been the two biggest barriers. These barriers have led to skyrocketing costs of procedures that could have been prevented with early prevention as well as unnecessary uncompensated care. The 21st Century CURES Act was passed as a tool to tear down these traditional barriers. Now, the patient can be the center of their own healthcare and use their information to make educated decisions on the direction of their healthcare. Providers, insurers and healthcare IT firms now have to provide a patient their data upon request. Directive Health is going to bring all of those pieces together and advance consumer-driven healthcare. We will empower your system by facilitating a decrease in unnecessary procedures, increased patient loads and a reduction in high cost/high risk procedures. We will collect patient data, then we will analyze it and show opportunities for current preventive care as well as provide guidance to attempt to prevent future high-cost procedures.
