Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) is defined as clinicians in service as of a certain date who are not currently on unpaid hold nor have given notice to terminate service. We use each clinician’s current subscription tier and price to estimate a full month of revenue. That monthly revenue is then multiplied by twelve to calculate annual recurring revenue.
Clinicians in Service (CIS) is defined as an individual doctor, nurse practitioner, or other healthcare professional using our services. We believe growth in the number of clinicians in service is an indicator of the performance of our business as it demonstrates our ability to penetrate the market and grow our business.
