Access to up-to-date, actionable information is the force that cures disease and drives progress– for people, medicine, and technology. We believe that only when you have absolute “information liberation” between patient and doctor, researcher and user, the public and institution, are the real stories told, and solutions found. That’s where honesty, trust, and compassion form the heart of Evinance.
The current treatment and care paradigm is broken. Today, we still follow the familiar pattern of patient seeks care, doctor prescribes care, patient accepts treatment. It’s a one-directional system where information- and not always the most current data –is veiled by the MD’s sole access to it, his ultimate decision about what’s best for the patient. The truth? Clinicians can’t keep up with new clinical information. Patients are overwhelmed with what they read online, and institutions have no centralized, electronic method to provide answers to either group that will meet the patient’s needs, her ability to adhere to the treatment plan or even to pay for her treatment.
Evinance believes that healthcare systems are on the precipice of a monumental change that must occur in order for patients, physicians and institutions to become full partners in treatment and care. That change is 100% transparent access to accurate, real-time standards of care and empowered decision making, where the MD and patient decide on the best course of action, together.
We believe that that future is now. Where doctors can rest easy knowing that each time they type in a diagnosis code into their EHR system, their choice of treatment will be checked and verified as the highest standard of care. And patients will have access to and understand the full impact of their different care options, any time, anywhere. Together, doctor and patient will decide the way forward. That’s the future of 100% shared decision healthcare. That’s empowered healthcare.
