Education mapped to the journey
Patients and caregivers can indicate where they are at on their healthcare journey and receive tailored content personalized to their health literacy and regional location. As patients report into the application their outcomes or roadblocks they come across PHAGE can then provide guidance and resources to empower the patients to be shared decision makers to advocate for their health.

How is this better than what is already out there?
Have you ever googled to try to find out more about a health issue and how to navigate use of insurance (or lack thereof)? Through the Personalized Health Academy of Guided Education patients and caregivers can get the support they need to achieve their health outcomes.
Ever been told to get a second opinion?
Just the fact that you should look into receiving a second opinion generally indicates there are options or interpretations of someone's health state and potential outcomes. PHAGE allows the user to have a frame of reference to compare differing opinions or education to help a patient clarify any confusion that they may have while pointing them in the directions available for them.
What is with all the maps?
In essence PHAGE is a bridge that links what is happening in the real world to help those that develop treatments and design better policies to help patients. The inspiration came from our least favorite fact that zipcodes are an indicator of likely health outcomes as important as someone's blood pressure or other health data. Today PHAGE is mapping, cataloging, scoring, and vetting a number of telehealth and telemedicine companies to soon be accessible from the PHAGE platform to help lessen this zipcode quagmire and extend care to rural populations. We are constantly adding functionality to PHAGE to supply the tools and solutions patients need to be stakeholders in their care.
Did you know in the United States you are usually within 40 miles of a healthcare provider and at the same time within 7 miles of a pharmacy? Do you know which states allows which pharmacies to offer services that can save you from scheduling a trip to the clinic? PHAGE provides this valuable bit of insight just within arms reach online or from our mobile app and our analysts are doing daily research to add to our knowledge base.
Where geography plays a larger role is when treatment decisions incorporate having to physically travel to a new location. For example there are a number of innovative personalized therapies that are available in a handful of locations across the United States. If you have the luxury of being able to travel to receive care how do you prioritize where to physically go to get care? By reputation? By cost? By how much hotels cost in the surrounding area? Or with the knowledge of knowing how patients have fared with similar journeys like yours?
What do we do with all of that data?
Well first and foremost we secure it! No health or patient information is shared with any organization without the complete consent and oversight of our users. We pride ourselves in patient centricity and at no point do we intend to jeopardize that trust.
Population Health Insights
The major benefit we provide to patients is helping pharmaceutical manufacturers, insurance providers, regulatory agencies, and healthcare providers better understand the needs of patients. By conducting comparative effectiveness research we derive insights using real world data to find out how treatments are working, or not working, and bring those insights to organizations that can act and change knowing those insights.
Our platform allows for a unique combination of combining the wealth of our experience engaging with stakeholders of healthcare to bring patients to that same table and give them a voice to truly enact change. By leveraging novel technologies like machine learning and artificial intelligence, our domain knowledge of therapeutic development, market access, and patient focused centricity PHAGE is the only technology there for patients and their caretakers every step of the way.
Our next initiative is to get physical locations for some IRL outreach where we can host commercial entities, healthcare providers, and especially patients in weekly events. The themes will be patient outcomes focused with targeted messaging on what needs to be done to help bring an accessible personalized medicine future into fruition. Until then keep up to date online with our Geo|Health series of whitepapers, podcasts, and pop up events!
The Personalized Health Academy of Guided Education is an ambitious project starting off as an application to give support to patients directly today. From there we are building in person events and education series to better support patients and their caretakers. And then finally we are on track to be a global player in shaping the education of future healthcare providers, the ways treatments are produced and brought to market, and how we intend to measure the performance of those treatments through the lens of being patients first.
