What People Are Saying

InX­ite has the right approach for how to best use tech­nol­o­gy to help improve out­comes. The abil­i­ty to lever­age pre­dic­tive analytics—similar to what is used today in detect­ing behav­ioral pat­terns and fraud—and apply it to help point health­care providers in the right direc­tion is of sig­nif­i­cant val­ue.

Exec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent Of Nation­al Health­care Asso­ci­a­tion

With so much atten­tion today on HIEs and EHRs, it is refresh­ing to see InXite’s prac­ti­cal approach for get­ting me and my care group the rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion that we need to improve the qual­i­ty of care and out­comes of our patients.

Care Coor­di­na­tor

inX­ite has shown great care to my moth­er. Her reg­u­lar appoint­ments and med­ica­tions are so much eas­i­er to man­age. The care team has giv­en my moth­er the con­trol and under­stand­ing she needs, allow­ing her to have peace of mind.

Richard

The nav­i­ga­tors who have been assigned to my son’s care have been pro­fes­sion­al, respect­ful, and kind to both our son and fam­i­ly. Sched­ul­ing has nev­er been eas­i­er. We can always expect some­one on time, mak­ing life less chal­leng­ing for a work­ing fam­i­ly.

Martha

I don’t have the words to ade­quate­ly express the appre­ci­a­tion I have for all of you. Thanks to the pro­fes­sion­al, com­pas­sion­ate car­ing of every­one in your orga­ni­za­tion, my father was able to find the care the best suit­ed to his needs. Do not for a minute dimin­ish the role you all play in the peo­ples’ lives. You are all a bless­ing.

Gene

I am pleased to say how well I have been served by InX­ite over the past year in the care of my dis­abled hus­band. I can eas­i­ly rec­om­mend the ser­vice, because this tru­ly is a per­son­al ser­vice.
