Although there are many disagreements over what to do with America’s healthcare, everyone agrees that being able to find a good doctor is not an easy task. Limited by factors such as insurance and a lack of information, the process is time-consuming and draining.

Amino is a new platform that hopes to be a solution to this problem. While seemingly in direct competition with other platforms such as ZocDoc, it functions a little differently. The platform gives users the ability to look for doctors with the most experience in treating specific ailments with good outcomes.

The platform analyzes insurance claims and medical billing records to see which doctors are most likely to perform specific procedures. This approach is a little different from utilizing availability and user ratings as the guiding factors. Beyond the results of their analysis, Amino also allows users to filter results based on distance and insurance. Additionally, there are cost estimates and virtual assistance available to help users throughout the entire process.

CEO and co-founder David Vivero decided to start this platform after having difficulty in obtaining a doctor for a rare condition he has. Vivero also started working on getting the company to work with health service providers to improve the whole process. Healthcare professionals will be able to utilize Amino’s data and other resources to provide better plans and services. Vivero strongly believes that insurance companies and employers have too little access to information, making it difficult to make good healthcare decisions that benefit both patients and providers.

Overall, Amino wants to bring more transparency to healthcare. Not persuaded by advertising or healthcare providers, the platform wants to provide the most accurate information to users by utilizing hard data. Their work thus far has resulted in receiving $45 million in venture funding. When it comes to choosing a doctor, having the best information is essential in preserving one’s health.
