The Amino Way
There’s an old way to do business in health care.
And then there’s the Amino way.
Amino is for everyone.
We believe that everyone should have access to the facts when making health care decisions. If you have friends and family with similar health needs to yours, you may have an easy time finding care that’s right for you. But what do you do when you move to a new city or get diagnosed with a new condition?
You shouldn’t have to get lucky to find the right care. No matter what insurance you have, where you live, or how old you are, we’re here to help.
Amino is ad-free.
Unlike many other health care websites, we don’t run distracting ads or promote “sponsored” doctors in featured slots. No ads means information you can trust.
When you look for a doctor on Amino, you’re getting results that are data-driven and unbiased.
So, how do we stay in business? We’re in the very early stages of building a sustainable consumer business model. Meanwhile, the data we have painstakingly compiled has great value throughout the health care industry. By selling some of our insights to companies focused on improving care quality, we can responsibly support our near-term costs.
Privacy is our priority.
With a lot of data comes a lot of responsibility. We work hard to make sure that your information remains anonymous and secure.
Your trust is important to us, so we don’t identify individuals in our health care database. Our pledge to you:
- We do not sell any data that personally identifies you.
- We do not use your identifiable health information to sell advertising.
- We use best practices to secure our health data.
Protecting your privacy
We do ask for personal information as you browse the site so we can help you find a doctor or book your appointment. That data is kept separate from the health care data in our de-identified database.
Serving up precise data analysis
There’s a lot of science and math behind Amino. We’re working with the best and brightest to make sure our analyses are conducted with rigor and integrity. Our goal is to responsibly present facts in a way that can help anyone make a decision. We use best practices in our analyses to present insights that are accurate and unbiased.
As with any analysis, there are some gaps in what we can measure. When we think something might be misinterpreted, we’ll be transparent and let you know up front. We also welcome helpful feedback from the community!
