Xealth is a platform that lets clinicians prescribe digital health tools to patients, typically under the hospital systems patient portal. So it's all white labeled to the hospital system and the doctors themselves. We've integrated over 40 different vendors on behalf of our hospital systems, patients, ED, articles, videos, apps, maternity care, behavioral health, pre-op, post-op PT, OT, rehab etc. Our platform is pretty broad and whatever the clinicians think can be digitally facilitated to improve patient care or ease of experience, we can put into our prescribing workflow.
So much of your consumer life can be transacted digitally. We can do mobile banking transactions and book flights on our phones. But when you hit the healthcare world, there's phone calls, there's faxes. I jokingly call it the lowest common denominator. If 100 percent of people can't do something on their phone then let's go to the lowest common denominator and make sure everyone makes a phone call or comes in for a face-to-face visit. But that does not meet consumer expectations. In healthcare it sort of hits this analog experience level. But it is changing.
