The Pressure Is On To Improve Outcomes For All Patients

Studies have proven that life outside the health system has a direct impact on outcomes and must be included as a part of patient-centered care planning. ​

Yet, health inequity persists as ​the industry struggles to effectively capture or act upon insights into real-world patient experiences ​and social determinants of health.

Companion by Patient Discovery™ is designed to meaningfully address these challenges.

Companion is the only digital health platform developed specifically to:
  • Empower patients to communicate their unique questions, concerns, ​and preferences, and engage in shared decision making​
  • Alleviate care teams of the administrative burden of discovery, ​and enable the efficient alignment ​of internal referrals and resources based on patient need​
  • Uncover previously inaccessible patient generated data and real-world insights for health systems, biopharmaceutical companies, and payers, ​to improve care​
  • Effectively support the shift to value-based care and participation in emerging payment models, including the Enhancing Oncology Model (EOM)
