  • Each listing in Purple Binder includes all the details required to access a community resource, including hours, eligibility, intake process, applications, and waitlists.
  • Our team of social workers establishes points of contact for tens of thousands of resources to get service information straight from the source.
  • Realtime support via live chat for help finding just the right resource.
“Before Purple Binder, Google was the only way we were making referrals. The information wasn’t verified and sometimes lacked details.”
“With Purple Binder, the change in my work has been tremendous, because all of the research has been done for me.”

Addressing social, behavioral, and economic issues is more than just the right thing to do.

It drives clinical results and lowers the cost of care.

  • Purple Binder is participating in one of the first RCTs on the clinical effects of patient navigators.
  • In an emergency room setting, a case management team used Purple binder to achieve a 60% reduction in acute costs of care for frequent fliers.
“Ultimately, by allowing [patients] to take better care of themselves, we aim to keep people healthier and out of the hospital.”
Amelia Mutso, RCT Project Manager

Purple Binder is easy to set up and implement.

After setting up Purple Binder at 500+ sites, we’ve worked out the kinks.

  • Successfully implemented at integrated health systems, ACOs, FQHCs, social service agencies, and major insurance companies.
  • Staff save 15-30 minutes per community referral over existing manual processes.
  • After a typical installation, staff make double the number of community referrals in 63% less time.
