Solve.Care, a global healthcare platform which uses blockchain technology for the administration, coordination and payments of healthcare benefits, has announced a partnership with Uber Health, allowing healthcare organizations to provide accessible and affordable rides to patients and caregivers.
Dan Trigub, Head of Uber Health, said:
“Every year, an estimated 3.6 million Americans miss their medical appointments due to a lack of reliable transportation, with the cost of missed primary care appointments estimated at US$150 billion annually. At Uber Health, we are always looking for ways to ensure that transportation is not a barrier to care. Via our HIPAA compliant solutions, we are working to facilitate rides for patients who might not have access or the ability to use smartphones and to improve access to care for patients with mobility issues. Our partnership with Solve.Care supports our efforts by bringing innovation to the healthcare space and driving greater accessibility to care for patients.”
The partnership will result in the integration of Uber Health’s transportation solutions into Solve.Care’s Care.Wallet, a personal healthcare coordination and administration application. Through the Care.Wallet, patients will be able to schedule Uber Health’s HIPAA compliant rideshare product to preapproved and predetermined care appointments, without the need for the Uber app or even a smartphone, immediately or for specific day of the appointment.

Solve.Care Partners with Leading Pharmaceutical Company Boehringer Ingelheim to Launch Care Network for Patients with Diabetes
Solve.Care has announced a collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc., to launch a patient-centric care network on the Solve.Care platform. The Diabetes Care Administration Network aims to improve the well-being of patients with diabetes, and who may also be at an increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
Initially, the network will be available to more than 25,000 patients through Arizona Care Network (ACN), a leading accountable care organization in the U.S. and a current client of Solve.Care. ACN will provide concierge care management and support care coordinators, with the goal of achieving better healthcare outcomes for participating patients. Based on the results of this initial launch, expansion opportunities in the U.S. and globally will be evaluated.
A very important and innovative element of the platform and the Diabetes Care Administration Network is the ability of family members to coordinate the care of their loved ones. It is not just the patient, but the community around and chosen by the patient, that is engaged and empowered to make important choices in how and when care is coordinated and provided.
The care network is expected to go live on or before year-end 2019.
