TriageLogic CEO Featured on Inc.’s 2024 Female Founders List

TriageLogic is proud to announce that its CEO, Dr. Charu Raheja, is featured on Inc.’s 2024 Female Founders list. The seventh annual list was released on April 9th and showcases 250 women with notable contributions in their respective fields. For Dr. Raheja, this involved TriageLogic’s development of an intelligent medical scripting system known as MedMessage Assist.

Over 99% Accuracy for Medical Message Intake

“We’ve seen how in many medical practices, nonclinical operators are usually the first people who patients interact with when they call in about their symptoms,” Dr. Raheja explained. “But over 35% of patients underreport their symptoms to intake operators, leading to significant delays in care. We can solve this by integrating natural language processing with medical scripting, ensuring operators capture accurate patient information every time.”

MedMessage Assist works in three simple steps:

  1. Collect the initial complaint from the patient.
  2. Have the system analyze the complaint using an algorithm in real time. 
  3. Ask two or three follow-up questions based on the algorithm’s suggestions to gather more precise symptoms to relay to the medical provider.

The goal behind MedMessage Assist is to bridge this knowledge gap so that nonclinical operators of all skill levels have a tool that can analyze the text of the symptoms they’re recording. This happens in real time as they’re speaking with patient callers, allowing operators to be notified when any symptoms need clarification. 

“We saw remarkable improvement when operators started using this tool — over 99% accuracy,” Dr. Raheja noted. “Medical notes were more thorough, which meant triage nurses were able to accurately prioritize when to call those patients back.” 

In fact, she says, MedMessage yielded far better results than any updated training her team had tried in the past.

The end result: patients still have the benefit of interacting with live, empathetic clinical operators who can verify that they have all of the symptom data they need.

“I’m very proud of my team for developing this medical scripting,” said Dr. Raheja. “I’m honored to be recognized by Inc. for developing this amazing product. While our company has always been focused on making it easier for patients to get access to the care they need, we also recognize that it goes both ways — nurses and doctors provide better care when they have access to better communication.”
