Our Solution

  • Position Health has built a geolocation intelligence engine that monitors patients.

    • It providers real-time visibility into patient medical facility utilization.

    • It enables timely connections between providers during critical moments in a patients’ care.

Real-Time Event Detection

Patient medical facility visits are detected using a proprietary algorithm tuned to eliminate false positives.

  • Patients are prompted to confirm their presence in the medical facility via configurable in-app notifications.

  • Medical facility visits are confirmed either by:

    • the patient clicking yes on the in-app prompt

    • a proprietary auto confirmation mechanism
