About Within Health
Every single adult in the United States can expect to be harmed because of missed, delayed, or inaccurate diagnoses at some point in their lifetime. Within Health is transforming how clinical diagnoses and recommendations are tracked and delivered to patients and their providers, starting in radiology where over 50% of follow-up recommendations are missed. The company built a system to track findings and recommendations made in radiology reports using proprietary AI and Natural Language algorithms, and automates the outreach to patients, and doctors reminding them to act on these findings. This process ensures that patients and referrers are made aware that a follow-up is needed, and that the recommendation feedback loop is closed. Early action on clinical diagnoses and recommendations prevent patient harm and give them the best chance for healthy outcomes. Within Health is headquartered in New York City, and is venture backed by leading healthcare investors.
