Zipnosis: Minute Clinic on Your iPhone

Zipnosis fits into the slipstream of your life in a way that traditional office visit care never has.

Jon Pearce, CEO of Zipnosis, one of 12 finalist in the 2014 Triple Tree iAwards at WLSA’s Convergence Summit, describes his company’s innovative approach to providing care for simple medical conditions for $25.

How it works: You wake up with a sore throat, but don’t want to take the time to go to your doctor or an urgent care clinic. Instead, you log onto Zipnosis and pick from the list of primarily self-limited conditions that are safe to treat based on history alone. You complete a 5 minute interview online, answering questions that Jon says are “the same ones a physician would ask.” The interview is powered by algorithms developed in-house that are based on clinical guidelines. The information is sent to a local physician, who may be using his down time in clinic, to review it and make a diagnosis If indicated, prescription is sent, via SureScripts to a pharmacy that is convenient to you.

Despite competing with obnoxious background music, Jon describes how Zipnosis provides a digital pipeline between patients and providers. It’s very cool.
