Backed by proprietary data analytics and machine learning technologies, the Clover Assistant Application is an online platform that provides physicians with relevant, real-time data for each patient at the point of care. As a member of this prestigious group, Dr. Porter is recognized for his dedication to using the Clover Assistant tool, which provides technology and data for a personalized healthcare experience for Clover members.
“We are pleased to announce that Dr. Porter is joining the growing network of Clover Preferred Care Providers certified in the Clover Assistant Application, our tool that helps doctors deliver the best care possible to their patients,” said Ethan Lipkind, Chief Development Officer at Clover. “Partnering with top-tier physicians such as Dr. Porter is extremely valuable as we continue developing the platform to best serve patients and doctors alike.”
The Clover Assistant Application was built to create a holistic and actionable view of patient data from across the entire healthcare ecosystem. As such, the Clover Assistant Application dynamically surfaces up-to-date, patient-specific information including medications filled in the last year, open care gaps, and evaluation and treatment suggestions, based on multiple data sources. With this knowledge, doctors can make more informed care decisions without having to rely on a patient’s memory for an accurate health history.

With over two decades of experience, Dr. Carlos Porter practices family medicine at Porter Medical Associates, where he provides families with the best possible medical care. He received his medical degree from the University of Texas, Health Science Center of San Antonio.
By offering a streamlined view of a patient’s healthcare journey, the Clover Assistant Application allows physicians to make the most of their patient visits. Using its machine learning technology, the tool also helps the provider to prioritize immediate patient needs, so each member receives the right care at the right time.
The Clover Assistant Application, launched as a pilot program in mid-2018, is the latest step in Clover’s commitment to empowering doctors to improve health outcomes for the company’s Medicare Advantage plan members.
