Patient ID and Activation

Ambit goes beyond the scope of traditional patient identification to focus on improving the rate at which patient leads are qualified and connected to relevant solutions and next steps.

Ambit works within the dimensions of the patient funnel to optimize the process by which patients are activated and converted to appropriate treatment and/or clinical trials. To optimize the patient funnel, the Ambit Patient ID team has two key offerings:

  1. Patient Funnel Optimization to measure and improve the effectiveness of ongoing patient identification activities
    • Activity Log: What activities have been done / planned to identify patients
    • Measure Effectiveness: What is the expected v. actual yield of these activities (including cost / patient)
    • Leverage / Leakage Points: How can current activities be optimized to mitigate leaks
    • Roadmap: Provide a plan of patient ID initiatives across all levels of the patient funnel through a co-created roadmap with the client team
  2. Patient ID Implementation Support to actualize patient ID plans for improved return on investment
    • Claims-based / EMR lead identification & validation
    • COE / Specialty Center Engagement & Partnership
    • Adjacent Patient Advocacy Partnerships
    • Patient Registry / Biobank Screening Partnerships
    • Genetic Counseling Partner Screening Study
    • Development of Landing Page & Qualification / Consent Tool
    • Genetic Counseling & Testing through telehealth partner
