par8o (pronounced "par-eight-oh") is named after the 19th Century Italian economist, Vilfredo Pareto, who first defined the powerful economic concept of Pareto efficiency or Pareto optimality in which a system is able to maximize benefits for each and every participant. When applied to the healthcare industry, Pareto optimality holds the promise of being able to improve overall access to healthcare while lowering costs.
Three key principles sit at the heart of everything we do. First, simplicity drives adoption - we have designed our platform to be simple and delightful to use, requiring minimal time filling out unnecessary fields and the quickest navigation to the right provider for the patient. Second, all healthcare is local - each of our clients is unique, with different business objectives, workflows and technology systems. As a result, our solutions are customized to meet their needs. Lastly, technology is necessary but not sufficient - we believe in providing not just the technology platform, but also the analytical tools and support to drive adoption and organizational change.
Life at par8o is busy. We work just as hard at the office as we do at home, many of us travel frequently, and success at par8o requires a high level of self-direction while being an excellent team communicator. We are all here because we want to make healthcare better. We strive to be the best at what we do. We hire quality over quantity; we continually punch above our weight class, and we're proud of it.
Our culture can be summed up in a few key phrases: Work hard. Innovate. Communicate. Love dogs. Get a little dirty. Go outside your job description. Help others. And be ready to dress up in Star Wars-themed costumes for a company meeting.
