      About zakipoint Health

      Every business should expect transparency and effectiveness from their healthcare spend. Today healthcare is a major cost after salaries for employers. And a major issue for consumers.

      zakipoint Health has one goal: to enable every company, regardless of size, to understand and lower their health care costs, easily and affordably.  

      Self-insured companies pay $610 bn in health care costs for their employees and are at risk for unexpected cost increases. They want insight into what drives these costs, they want to know if programs like high risk coaching, diabetes, high deductible plan, telemedicine service, actually work and they want to target interventions to the right people. The data required to do this is not easily accessible, analysis is complex, and insights are lost in a mass of numbers.

      zakipoint Health (ZPH) solves this problem.

      • We have streamlined the process to acquire, integrate, and clean the data (Med and Rx data, biometric, program participation, HR)
      • We have productized the analysis to the point where employers can easily examine key cost drivers, identify opportunities for improvement, and measure program performance
      • And we enable targeting and outreach to members to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of engagement programs

      And we integrate all of the above in one place.

      Together with an extraordinary team of colleagues and advisors, we are on a road to taking this to many many more customers.
