medium-sized businesses with on-site medical clinics staffed by
physicians. The goal is to drive down insurance costs for employers,
as well as keep employees healthy, ensuring they spend less time out
of the office. In addition to providing services treating or
managing sick employees, NeoPath offers wellness services that help
keep employees and their families well.

that would provide the clinically sound information our staff needs
to maximize effectiveness of our wellness initiatives,” says Joe
McErlane, CEO of NeoPath Health. “When we saw the science behind
Know Your Number, we knew we had found the right solution for our
applications; Know Your Number provides our clinic staff with
actionable health information, offers insight into the most
effective wellness programs to initiate, and documents the results
of our services This provides both NeoPath Health and our clients
