About DignifiHealth

DignifiHealth partners with healthcare groups on value-based healthcare, chronic care management solutions, care gap closure, and more. We help our clients improve patient experience, enhance population health, optimize financial performance, and promote provider well-being.

Built to make an impact.

When we developed our software, our goal was to highlight actionable opportunities to improve patient outcomes and help clients generate measurable results utilizing the data trapped within their EMRs. Our all-in-one population health platform is designed to translate analytics into action, improving patient outcomes, increasing provider reimbursement, and lowering the overall cost of care.

Our Story

At DignifiHealth, our technology is driven by expertise combined with a common sense approach to solving complex challenges. With extensive professional experience leading healthcare, technology, and finance initiatives, we realized there was a better way to assist both patients and healthcare professionals in achieving the improved outcomes that value-based care aims to provide.

 

DignifiHealth’s promise is to build and offer value-based technology solutions and services that produce better experiences for burned-out providers, optimal outcomes for vulnerable patients, and true value through lower costs for all healthcare stakeholders. While our purpose defines what we do, our values define how we do it.

Authenticity

We act in a transparent, trustworthy manner.

Curiosity

We commit to challenging the status quo.

Respectfulness

We care about and respect one another.

Perseverance

We set and achieve our goals, despite obstacles that may arise.

Creativity

We start small. We think big. We move fast.
