Headquartered in Cary, NC, Infina Connect deploys cloud-based healthcare solutions that have a profound impact on cost and outcomes for large populations. “The reason we exist is to transform healthcare delivery in ways that benefit everyone,” claims Siu Tong, Chairman.
According to Mark Hefner, the CEO of Infina Connect, collaboration is the best path to cost savings and better healthcare—specifically for the patient community that will consult multiple providers in different care settings.“Here the primary care providers and patients become accountable for outcomes,” he says. They need information about quality and costs and also tools to translate that information into their benefit— a task that Infina Connect’s Intelligent Care Coordinator (ICC) is built for.
ICC is a robust referral network that allows healthcare providers to communicate, collaborate, and share information about their referred patients. It connects the healthcare community by digitizing referral processes that replace fax and phone chaos with complete status and information visibility. ICC’s directory gives referring clinics the information to make patient-centered referrals, and gives specialty clinics a means to reach out to referring clinics with information about their practice. The solution is designed in such a way that it can be easily accessed by any provider with a browser and internet connection. The ease of use, the ease of adoption and the ability to coordinate patient care has made ICC invaluable to more than 1600 providers in the Raleigh area in a short span of time.
Along with ICC, the company’s Automated Prior Authorization solutions for prescription drugs automate drug registry and authorization processes to promote appropriate, safe and effective prescription drug use. The system replaces manual processes like phone calls, faxes and some clinical reviews to help ensure the safe prescription of medication while cutting costs for payers, providers and patients.

Infina’s vision is to spread coordinated care in communities across the United States through referral management. The opportunities to improve health and financial outcomes are actionable now, yet providers in most cities and regions don’t yet have the ability to easily communicate and coordinate care with other providers. Infina is focusing on cross-country partnerships, increasing awareness of the benefits for providers, payers and patients, and ultimately, bending the cost curve on connected care.
