Real-Time Illness Triage
Each year, between 5% and 20% of the population will come down with influenza, and around 200,000 people will visit hospitals because of the virus. These visits are costly, stressful, and often unnecessary — many could be handled via primary physicians, home care, or telemedicine.
And hospitalization costs just scratch the surface of flu’s economic impact. Researchers estimate that the illness has cost the U.S. an average of $8.4 billion per year in productivity—more than the entire annual GDP of Napa Valley, California.
Kinsa’s mobile triage tools combat these costly trends by steering members and patients to the remedies, services and information you know will serve them best, getting people on their way to health more quickly and more cost effectively whenever possible.
