Utilize Health is an Internet advertiser and web-based platform which matches individuals seeking treatment, rehabilitation or therapy for the physical conditions we cover with health care facilities and providers. Utilize Health makes this site available to provide access to health-related resources.
Utilize Health is not a healthcare provider and nothing herein is intended, and must not be taken, to be the rendering of medical, nursing, or professional health care advice or services, or the practice of medicine, nursing, or professional health care, in any jurisdiction. Utilize Health does not recommend or endorse any specific facilities, providers, procedures, opinions, or other information that may appear through the web site. If you rely on any content provided through the web site, you do so solely at your own risk.
YOU ARE ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR CHOOSING YOUR OWN HEALTHCARE PROVIDER.
An individual ("patient") is matched with healthcare facilities and providers based on matching responses in both the Patient and Facility questionnaires. Matches identify healthcare facilities and providers as either "Partner Facilities" or "Non-Partner Facilities".
Each "Partner Facility" has paid a participation fee to Utilize Health to be identified as a Partner Facility and to complete a Facility questionnaire furnishing information about its facilities, equipment, personnel and therapies. Fees are set and uniformly assessed against all Partner Facilities. Fees paid by a Partner Facility do not depend in any way on whether a potential patient decides to become a patient of that Partner Facility.
A "Non-Partner Facility" does not pay a participation fee and the information about these facilities and providers is taken from public sources and is not confirmed or verified by the facility or provider.
Partner Facilities have furnished us with detailed information in their Facility questionnaire responses and are more likely to be listed higher on the match listings than Non-Partner Facilities.
Utilize Health selects health care facilities and providers to participate as a "Partner Facility" based on the following criteria which is self-reported to us by the "Partner Facility":
have facilities, equipment and personnel necessary to furnish therapy services for the health conditions we serve;
is authorized to conduct its business under the laws of the state in which the facility or provider is located; and
is located in the geographic areas currently covered by Utilize Health.
Utilize Health will exclude or remove a healthcare facility or provider as a participating Partner Facility based on failure to pay participation fee or failure to meet the criteria required to be a Partner Facility (as described above).
Utilize Health's website is publicly accessible and not directed at any particular potential patient visiting the website. The use of Utilize Health's matching service by potential patients is unrestricted. All potential patients utilizing our matching services receive the same service.
