WELL Health has also entered into a strategic alliance agreement with Phelix.ai which grants WELL broad rights to use and sublicense Phelix.ai’s clinical assistant automation software in all aspects of its business including its OSCAR EMR network.
Phelix.ai is a technology service provider whose software allows health care clinics to automate key workflows and administration tasks so that non-medical staff can focus on higher value tasks.
