Pathfinder revolutionizes the way clinicians assess progress and recommend interventions.

The current system is broken.

The average age of diagnosis is over 5 years for conditions that can be detected before a child turns 2.

This means most children receive treatments after  the critical early intervention window when most of the major brain structures are mature, and it becomes more difficult (and more expensive) to make significant changes. 

It’s easy to notice things babies do that are unusual. It’s harder to notice things that are missing.


— Dr. Turner-Brown


20% of U.S. kids have developmental disorders (including autism).

Empowering parents. Enabling physicians. Ensuring better outcomes.

Pathfinder Health app is a starting point towards helping children receive the developmental support they may need. It revolutionizes the way clinicians assess progress and recommend interventions.


Better quality of the visit and care.

  • An interval history. The information about a child’s development is only a click away: completed milestones, screening results, daily behavior & mood, parents and daycare notes/concerns. In 30 seconds you will learn about your patient development more than in a 30-min visit.

  • Data-driven discussions & intervention. Once data is reviewed, you can go into the visit with the plan. Accurate, up-to-date, and thorough information naturally leads to a higher quality of care, from better diagnoses to reduced errors.

  • Missed milestones alerts can help you keep track of each patient's developmental health and intervene immediately via a built-in telehealth module.

  • Making health care more affordable in rural areas. Instead of having to travel long distances, parents can consult with you via Pathfinder mobile app.

More productive and efficient clinical life

  • Immediate practice integration. Simple implementation and effortless integration into your medical routine. All you need to do is to register and add your patients.

  • Increased productivity & efficiency. Speed up office visits without sacrificing a patient-centered approach by having all the information in the palm of your hand. Reduce miscommunication with parents and paperwork.

  • Better clinical decision-making by getting patient longitudinal information from multiple sources: parents, grandparents, nanny, and daycare.

  • Don't have training in dev delay? 50% of children are seen by family doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Pathfinder allows all clinicians adherence to the best evidence-based practices and AAP/CDC screening guidelines.


More successful medical practice

  • Patient satisfaction. An efficient practice not only saves time and money but can also bring in more referrals.

- Reduce wait times and the overall time patients spend in your office. Parents are busy people, too. Importantly, shorter office visits also reduce patients’ exposure to illnesses carried by other patients, like COVID-19.
- Show your patients you have their children's best interests in mind. Reaching major milestones at the right age is the most common concern for the majority of new moms.
- Help lower potential health care costs. Intervention is more effective and less costly when developmental delays are identified earlier in life rather than later.


  • Increased productivity & efficiency. Time savings with well-organized information will help your practice see more patients and generate more revenue.

  • Increase in billing. If you're not doing SWYC/M-CHAT clinical screenings, you might be leaving money on the table. Let parents take the screenings at the convenience of their home, so you can do the assessments, code, and bill for these services. Although the fee-for-service payment for screening and assessments may be small ($5 to $60), it can add up to significant income across a patient panel.
