Powering Communities with Knowledge
NowPow is a personalized community referral platform that addresses population health and social determinants of health, while using geospatial information to understand gaps in community care.
Our data-driven referrals connect people to community resources that are highly matched to both their health and social needs. We securely manage information aggregation and exchange across community stakeholders to streamline workflows.
At NowPow, we help people know where to go and build the connections to get them there.
Whole Person Care
Across Whole Communities
NowPow powers caring for all people in a community, not just the sickest. Whether trying to stay well, meet basic needs, manage with chronic illness or care for others, NowPow helps everyone at all of life’s ages and stages.
We also support networks of all sizes and sectors. Our platform supports organizations in health care, human and social services, and education.
A Community Care
We know one size doesn’t fit all, especially for the wide range of organizations across a whole community. Our platform has multiple products to support different use cases from self-serve to remote care. Functionality is configurable to fit various workflows from those that are light touch to those that support the most complex interventions and regulated organizations.
Our platform securely and seamlessly integrates with EHRs, HIEs, patient and member portals, and care or case management systems, ensuring referrals are part of the routine workflow for all types of users.
At NowPow, we make access easy for everyone.
Referral Quality Really Matters
We automatically map needs to optimal services using more than 50 evidence-based matching algorithms and filter results by critical access factors like COVID-19 operating status, location, language(s) spoken, documents needed and other eligibility requirements.
Using human supported data collection, we validate thousands of service data points every day so users always feel confident our hyperlocal resource information is credible and will provide better access to the right resources.
We auto-check during the referral process to determine if appropriate consent is on file, if the consent is not expired, and if the person meets all eligibility requirements (including customized questions) so no one is turned away and no time is wasted.
Deep focus on
We go beyond identifying if a referral’s loop was closed. We enable all stakeholders to monitor and track every aspect of the referral – from process tracking to detailed outcomes – to drive and measure engagement, performance and impact.
Grounded in Science,
Everything at NowPow is informed by our founder, Dr. Stacy Lindau’s, scientific research funded by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation, AHRQ and NIH, as well as her role as a practicing physician at the University of Chicago, where she pioneered the idea of making e-prescribing community resources as easy as e-prescribing medication.
NowPow was purpose-built to drive process improvement and evaluate intervention impact through dynamic data collection and analysis. We securely match, aggregate and share data to inform decision making around resource demand relative to supply, referral partner selection and intervention optimization.
Today, NowPow works with an array of organizations across the nation—including health care, child welfare, housing, schools/universities and the government. We build networks that range from highly targeted to broad-based, but all grounded in the simple idea that Knowledge is Power (in fact, that’s how we got our name).
