Founded by Ariel Efergan, Pangea Medical is the best way to understand the patient story—enabling our partners to control cost and deliver precision care coordination. We use clinical and social determinants of health to reveal a complete picture of a patient’s needs, ultimately reducing avoidable readmissions, removing barriers, and optimizing resources. Pangea incorporates data and predictive modeling with in-home clinicians to deliver the ultimate data-driven solution. Pangea includes an in-home assessment to fully understand what in a patient’s life impacts their health. Pangea creates actionable data using our predictive model to create a risk profile. Based on this risk, we identify the interventions that will have the most impact on a patient’s health and execute them.






HealthClx is the culmination of years of determination and hard work to achieve a singular goal; to provide Americans with a whole new perspective to their healthcare options. For Founder and CEO Allison Leviton, HealthClx is a dream come true. Finally, a platform that is driven by forward-thinking and ingenuity, that not only connects patients with health care providers but allows them to do so from a new viewpoint—through HealthClx, costs quoted for services are genuine and transparent. Patients are finally able to see their options for care and know and compare the true costs associated with these healthcare options. Power over our healthcare choices means we have a broader view of wellbeing.
