In our previous blog post we explored PicassoMD’s origins and our “Why,” the reason we do what we do. In this post we focus on our “How,” examining how our model for clinical decision support, referral management, and care coordination differentiates our platform, leading to higher provider utilization and better patient outcomes.
For any tool to be widely adopted by providers, it must be designed with their day-to-day functions in mind and make a provider’s job easier rather than just add one more task to an already saturated day. The technology must be readily accessible, simple to use, and have minimal impact on their workflow.
With that goal, PicassoMD designed our clinical decision support to be initiated AND completed within the confines of a normal patient visit. Primary Care Providers (PCPs) can be connected with a specialist in under a minute and get their consultative questions answered while the patient is still in the office. This is revolutionary for providers who are accustomed to having to wait hours or days to get feedback from a specialist.
In the vast majority of cases, PicassoMD connects PCPs with specialists in their local area. This is critical because specialist care often requires testing and procedures which cannot be completed through telemedicine. If follow-up care is required, PCPs can refer patients to a local specialist through PicassoMD and together they can coordinate the patient’s care.
By combining clinical decision support, referral management to local specialists, and care coordination, PicassoMD offers providers a complete solution not found elsewhere.
As a direct result of this model, we are able to make an impact on our nation’s healthcare system along several key dimensions:
By combining our “Why” with a novel and differentiated “How,” PicassoMD is poised to quickly change the standard of care and accelerate the transition to value-based care.

Primary care providers don’t have to go it alone, even when they’re practicing alone. PicassoMD allows primary care providers to access specialists for clinical decision support at any time, even on the weekend. This is often the difference between a patient getting a treatment plan with peace of mind and an unnecessary trip to the ER.

Simon Sinek popularized the idea that WHY you do something is often more important than WHAT you do. PicassoMD’s “Why” was born out of the challenges and frustrations PicassoMD’s co-founder and co-CEO, Reza Sanai, experienced when practicing medicine within the U.S. healthcare system.
