Empowering Clinicians, Patients, and the Healthcare Enterprise: The FirstHx Difference

Our journey at FirstHx is fueled by the belief that the patient’s voice is the cornerstone of medical care. This conviction, coupled with our unique clinician-led approach, has propelled us to create a pre-engagement solution that is not just a tool but a transformative approach to patient care. Our deeply rooted clinical expertise serves as the backbone of our platform, ensuring that every feature we offer is meticulously designed to enhance clinician efficiency, quality, and patient experience.

The Adaptive Medical Interview: A Conversation That Cares

The foundation of our platform is the adaptive medical interview—a dynamic, evolving conversation where the questions the application asks are based on the previous answers, ensuring every patient’s story is heard and understood in its entirety. This adaptability allows for the efficient collection of complex medical information, typically in under 5 minutes.

Customization: The Key to Personalized Care

Healthcare is as diverse as the individuals it serves. That’s why FirstHx offers specialty and subspecialty content that is fully customizable to meet the unique needs of each practice.

Comprehensive Content: Your Practice, Our Priority

Spanning over 15 specialties and ever-growing, our solution now includes content in primary care, pediatrics, cardiology, ophthalmology, pulmonology, ENT, orthopedics, mental health, telemedicine, urgent care, and emergency medicine. We are continually expanding to cover new areas of care—driven by your requests and our commitment to comprehensive coverage.

The Complete Medical Interview: A Panoramic View

Our platform offers a 360-degree view of a patient’s history, from medical and surgical history to medications, allergies, and social determinants of health. FirstHx emphasizes preventative health, with content on cancer screening, vaccinations, and routine check-ups.

A Multilingual Approach: Healthcare Without Borders

In today’s globalized world, language should not be a barrier to quality healthcare. FirstHx breaks down these walls by offering services in English, Spanish, French, and Arabic, ensuring that more patients can communicate their medical histories with ease and accuracy.  We are continually adding more languages to guarantee healthcare accessibility for all.

Innovative Features: Smart, Seamless, Simple

Our system can automatically calculate any risk score including CHADS2, HAS-Bled, VAS, and RAFS scores, seamlessly integrating critical data into the patient’s narrative. Our speech-to-text functionality and the ability to take pictures alongside clinical symptoms make it easier for patients to share their stories and ensure their voices are heard and documented accurately. Our signature feature enables the signing of consents, and our drawing feature enables patients to diagram their symptom location on a body map.

Data-Driven Insights: Turning Innovation into Action

FirstHx is not just about collecting information; it’s about making sense of it. Our dashboards provide real-time analytics and performance measures, while our predictive modeling helps improve patient cohorts for conditions like Hypertension, Diabetes, and CHF.

Clinical Trial Support: Streamlining the Path to Discovery

At FirstHx, we understand the critical role that clinical trials play in advancing medical knowledge and patient care. Our platform is designed to be an integral part of this process by:

  • Streamlining Recruitment: FirstHx simplifies the recruitment process by collecting comprehensive patient-generated data. Our platform can identify potential participants who meet the specific criteria for a trial, saving valuable time and resources.
  • Data Integrity: With FirstHx, the data collected is structured and standardized, which is essential for maintaining the integrity of the trial and ensuring that the results are reliable and valid.
  • Patient Engagement: Our platform empowers patients to be active participants in trials by making it easier for them to share their medical histories, leading to better engagement and retention rates.
Harnessing Population Health Insights for Targeted Care

Each patient’s history is a vital piece of the larger puzzle. We provide valuable population health data to inform better care strategies and outcomes. By accurately capturing these histories, FirstHx enables effective risk stratification. This means we can identify subgroups within a population that may be at higher risk for certain conditions, enabling targeted preventive measures. By understanding the health needs of a population through comprehensive histories, health systems can allocate resources more efficiently, ensuring that those who need care the most receive it.

FirstHx: Pioneering Better Health for All

At FirstHx, we’re not just a digital health company; we’re a partner in care, committed to empowering patients and clinicians alike. By sharing my perspective, I hope to engage clinicians and leaders in a dialogue about the importance of comprehensive patient histories in shaping the future of population health.
