How We Help Patients

Every patient has experience this - sitting in a doctor's office filling out forms.

Patients often struggle to access healthcare whether its communicating with their doctors office or filling out forms on clipboards or access to their own health information.

At Yosi, we believe a patient that has access to tools are empowered to improve their health outcomes. So we created Yosi to be patient-centric where it allows them to manage all their healthcare needs at the convenience of our mobile app. 

One place for all your healthcare needs!

How We Help Physicians

Running a medical practice is more challenging than saving lives through medical care.

Recent studies from Harvard shows over 20% of healthcare expenditures are wasteful.

Typical providers face enormous administrative burden:

1. Patients No-shows

2. Phone call burden

3. Paperwork

4. Data transcription

5. Claim denials

6. Insurance verification 

7. Payment collection

among many other things. Yosi is designed by doctors for doctors to help run the practice more efficiently.

Yosi helps communicate with your patients via text messages, streamlines your front office workflow eliminating the administrative inefficiencies. Yosi is a pre-visit workflow automation for medical offices.

How We Help Hospitals

Hospitals are the life blood of any community. With high infrastructure costs, high operational expenditures and shrinking reimbursements, hospitals are providing life saving medical treatment putting patients health and safety first.

Hospitals face enormous administrative burden providing timely medical care related to patient engagement, document management post discharge planning and care coordination.

Yosi is a workflow automation platform that supports and complements your EMR system to improve operation efficiencies.

Yosi seamlessly integrates into your workflow, working in the background doing more, so you can do less administrative work and improve patients health outcomes.

 

 

 

How We Help Partners

Yosi strongly believes in providing value to our stakeholders by partnering with other great innovators, enterprises and institutions.
