Few small businesses of our size in this industry have as many terminal degree professionals per capita than MicroHealth. These educators, researchers and professors from bioinformatics to public health bring scientific rigor to the MicroHealth approach. As thought leaders, you can see their strengths by simply searching “deadliest diseases” or “deadliest pandemics” or “top 10 usability myths.” You will find top-ranked articles from MicroHealth blogs above the fold in your results. That’s not search engine optimization, its traffic from readership of their blogs that are compelling, powerful and authoritative. Our team also boasts a number of industry certifications such as ITIL 2011, PMP, CPHIMS, LSS Black Belt, DAWIA Acquisition Level II and III among many other professional certifications and health provider licenses.
By using innovative ideas combined with best practices and today’s latest technology as a catalyst, we can make a difference in how patients, providers, public health and payers get results. One of the ways we innovated was to take our experience as disabled veterans as a way to empower others. We currently provide a number of VA disability guides that are used by Veterans and Veteran Service Organizations. An internet search of “va disability guide” will result in MicroHealth’s results above the fold. We also provide unique veteran disability tools such as a compensation calculator, a rating calculator, a combined disability questionnaire and top-rated mobile applications that help veterans determine their benefits. These tools are among approximately 40 applications we developed from wellness and nutrition apps to games and productivity tools provided to the general public free of charge, without advertisements and many open-source allowing others to innovate and enhance. Beyond application development, our staff expresses their creativity in a number of ways from professional video production to eye-catching graphics all visible from our website https://microhealthllc.com under the menu item “mZone”.
At MicroHealth, PEOPLE are truly our most important asset and we heavily invest in the recruitment, retention and reinvestment of our amazing staff. Our staff is keenly focused on delivering unparalleled VALUE with every interaction that exceeds expectation, turning customers into advocates. We do this through INNOVATION using technology as a catalyst for patients, providers, public health and payers.
