Amino's consumer health platform is the most comprehensive and advanced doctor search engine presently available in the North American market
MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, June 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the consumer health and wellness industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Amino with the 2016 North America Frost & Sullivan Award for Visionary Innovation Leadership. Amino has firmly established its visionary leadership excellence through its data-driven consumer health platform to help patients make better healthcare decisions through superior doctor searches. Its outstanding strategic approach to extract and analyze healthcare insurance claims from a multitude of extremely fragmented data sources has placed it far ahead of many of its competitors in the healthcare industry.
Amino's consumer health platform offers interactive doctor selection and free appointment scheduling services that enable users to sort doctors based on their experience, as well as the users' individual preferences. The doctor search engine features a dynamic matching algorithm and search filters that provide an unbiased assessment of doctors based on their practice, location, gender, and other credentials critical to patients seeking specialized treatment or that have complex healthcare needs.
"Amino analyses a secure database of more than 5 billion healthcare interactions before matching patients with doctors who have treated similar health conditions," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Dinesh Kumar. "Amino also takes the responsibility of booking an appointment with follow-up confirmations. As its doctor listings are non-sponsored and advertisement-free, users feel confident about making important healthcare decisions."
Amino's comprehensive database includes nearly every practicing doctor (approximately 893,000) in the United States and a vast search engine powered by healthcare transaction data covering the experiences of 188 million Americans. Furthermore, it takes into account data for over 800 medical conditions, procedures, and specialties during a personalized search. In many instances, Amino even surfaces actionable, physician-level information such as a doctor's sub-specialty based on their real-life practice patterns.
Moreover, Amino has engineered its platforms in a way that makes transparent sensitive health data that remained in-silo for years. In addition to its commercial claims database of over 5 billion claims, it is the first for-profit company to be approved by Medicare to obtain national, physician-level data on more than 3 billion Medicare claims annually.
The platform's most important value-added benefit is its customer centricity. Amino has broken down financial barriers, making all information and products freely available on Amino.com. This way, it caters to a wide range of health care needs and optimizes for efficiency, safety, and outcomes.
"Amino stands out as one of the few companies dedicated to transforming healthcare consumer engagement with next-generation interactive solutions that use data analytics and business intelligence concepts," noted Kumar. "Despite tough competition from industry-leading vendors that offer similar services, Amino's data-driven, unbiased, and consumer-centric doctor search platform has proven to be a solid market differentiator in an increasingly crowded landscape."
