"We are acutely aware that our physician, MSO, and health plan partners can't afford any downtime, particularly during a pandemic. They rely on a continually updated, real-time diagnostic view of patient populations to provide the highest quality care," said Interpreta Chief Executive Officer Sachin Patel. "Interpreta had a busy year supporting our client partners through some of the challenges presented by the pandemic - demonstrating the strength of our analytics engine and cloud-based platform and its ability to support continuous business operations through a global crisis. Our platform enabled disparate teams from around the country to collaborate on patient care whether team members were working from an office, a clinical setting, or their homes. We look forward to continuing to support our partners as we all look to a brighter 2021."
