Taking a deeper look at the Solve.Care-Lyft partnership
Solve.Care recently formed a partnership with Lyft that will give patients more options for non-emergency medical transportation. This partnership greatly improves access to medical care with first-of-its-kind blockchain and ridesharing service integration. This is a big step in the right direction to help facilitate mass acceptance of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Care.Wallet users are able to schedule Lyft rides to doctor appointments, pharmacies, and hospitals while selecting arrival times to notify the provider they are en route, which can increase efficiency and reduce wait times. They can use the Care.Wallet to pay for Lyft rides and have the ability to share the cost with insurers, employers, or family members. This enables coordination between patients, providers, and family members, in regard to arrival, assistance, schedule adjustments, and cost.
The company is a blockchain healthcare platform used by providers, patients, employers, healthcare agencies, and insurance companies. Blockchain technology serves as the underlying distributed ledger for all care events between the patient, provider, pharmacy, laboratory, insurer, and other parties. With Solve.Care, patients can manage healthcare decisions without confusion, employers can administer benefits while reducing costs, and physicians/hospitals can manage appointments, issue prescriptions, and coordinate with specialists. Solve.Care coordinates stakeholders, eliminates inefficient processes, replaces duplicated systems, and automates processes currently done manually which will reduce fraud, waste, and abuse.
Solve.Care is the first healthcare IT company to implement a blockchain solution and digital currency for value-based payments to the US health industry. Last year, Solve.Care delivered a solution for 5,500 physicians of one of America’s biggest care providers – Arizona Care Network (ACN), and is moving forward with other potential clients. The value-based payments that are happening within the application with Solve.Care’s digital currency Care.Coin marked a historic event for the industry. These partnerships will definitely help facilitate mainstream adoption of cryptocurrency.
The Solve.Care Ecosystem consists of:
Care.Wallet: a personal care blockchain app that helps patients and providers to communicate and manage care. Care.Cards and Care.Coins are integrated into the wallet putting the consumer in control over all information and actions. Care.Cards: built-in apps inside the Care.Wallets which build intelligence into the platform to automate healthcare administration, effectively coordinate care between multiple stakeholders, handle complex billing transactions and deliver personalized information to the wallet holders. Care.Coin: used within Solve.Care. which removes a lot of the risk and reduces cost from the 3rd party payment model by providing transparency, immutable replay and accountability which will eliminate the majority of fraud, abuse, and waste. Care.Vault: organizes and manages the data within the Solve.Care platform and from external sources as well as manage access. Care.Protocol: synchronizes and connects cards, wallets, and coins between stakeholders which coordinates care and automates transactions. Care.Protocol removes the need for a centralized record keeper.
SOLVE is the Solve.Care utility token for administration, care coordination, as well as payments for healthcare and benefits. The SOLVE token provides access to healthcare services for Care.Wallet users globally allowing wallet holders to utilize SOLVE tokens in the Care.Wallet to access specific Care.Cards according to their needs. SOLVE tokens are used within the Solve.Care ecosystem by patients, physicians, insurance companies, employers, clinical organizations, IT developers and government agencies. The SOLVE token is currently traded on the Bittrex, Upbit and Kucoin trading platforms.
