"Episodes of care" are created by Sherpaa members on desktop, iPhone, or Android. Here are the types of episodes.

They can last anywhere from, say:
3 days for a UTI
3 weeks for a pneumonia
3 months for a breast cancer scare

Who is working with a patient in an episode of care?
Sherpaa’s PCPs are the “project lead” alongside support staff from psychologists, care navigators, specialists, and services that coordinate surgical procedures.
How does Sherpaa charge for an episode of care?
No matter the length or complexity, Sherpaa charges a flat rate of $100 per episode. That's because within any population, there's a very predictable rate of simple (lots), moderate (lots), and complex (a few) cases. And in the end, it all averages out to one simple cost that makes working with Sherpaa easy and transparent.
