Buoy is a digital care assistant. When you're sick, Buoy helps you find your way back to health. Log in on your desktop or mobile browser, enter your symptoms, and let Buoy take it from there. First, Buoy helps you figure out what's making you sick - by using algorithms to analyze your symptoms in detail. Next, Buoy helps you decide what to do - whether that means resting at home, seeing a doctor, or something in between. And then, if you need, Buoy can even connect you with doctors nearby. We will measure the success of Buoy in getting patients/employees to the right level of care, including avoiding the ED when a visit is not necessary. Outcomes will include an estimated medical cost savings associated with the redirection.
