Solve.Care — the company behind a blockchain platform for coordination, administration, and payments of healthcare — announced the integration with ride sharing firm Lyft to empower Solve.Care wallet holders with greater access and control over healthcare related transportation.
Care.Wallet users will be able schedule their own Lyft rides to doctors' offices, hospitals, and pharmacies, with the ability to plug in desired arrival times. Additionally, patients can automatically pay for the ride with their Care.Wallet and share ride costs with their family members, employers, insurers and others. The collaboration also allows for coordination between patient, provider and family members, regarding assistance, arrival, cost and schedule adjustments.
"By partnering with Lyft, our platform will provide a more efficient and seamless experience for patients and enable payers, employers, and other agencies to improve patient satisfaction through timely access to care, reduced wait times, and simpler cost-sharing and access to transportation subsidies," Pradeep Goel, CEO of Solve.Care, said in a statement.
Solve.Care platform uses blockchain as the underlying distributed ledger to completely change the way coordination of care, benefit administration and real-time payments are accomplished in healthcare. This approach allows for configuration of patient centric care administration networks that allow participation based on disease conditions, economic and social needs, employment, and other eligibility criteria.
