How will new features in the clinical workflow help promote better coordination of care?

Collectively, that’s exactly what we’ve been aiming to do with these features. So, our visit note experience enables collaboration between the care team together by introducing real-time collaboration and auto-saving functionality. Our inbox experience is intended to be such that people are coordinating care across the care team and we’re looking to make sure this information reaches the patient and that there’s care collaboration with them.

Will these new features also impact the growing issue of physician burnout?

Yes, everything we do in in that mind set of reducing physician burnout. As a specific example, with our Flatiron Assist tool, we’re trying to make it such that providers can go directly to the regimen they know while also proving concordance with the [National Comprehensive Cancer Center] guidelines and hopefully streamlining the prior authorization process, which we know is just so burdensome for both providers and patients.
