Need A Lyft To Your Doctor's Appointment? Solve.Care’s Got You Covered

The company says its new scheduling system is designed for use by patients, doctors, employers, and insurance providers.

On March 4, blockchain healthcare solution provider Solve.Care announced its partnership with popular rideshare app company Lyft to help make it easier for those in need of medical assistance to get to their appointments.

According to the press release, Solve.Care utilizes blockchain technology to coordinate different aspects of healthcare such as "care, benefits and payments between patient, doctor, pharmacy, laboratory, employer, insurer, and all other parties." The platform utilizes its Care.Wallet to make automatic payments in the company's native SOLVE token and house and manage Care.Cards. These are personalized cards that, according to the Solve.Care website, store real-time information about the user's medical benefits, eligibility for certain doctors or medical services, information regarding doctor referrals, and payment and bill reconciliation.

Speaking to Forbes, Solve.Care CEO Pradeep Goel said the company's main goal was not to "replace the physician" but to "engage the physician in a manner that they can be much more effective with lesser time investigating and … more time analyzing data."

Per Solve.Care, the new scheduling system will allow users of the Care.Wallet to schedule rides to and from "doctors' offices, hospitals, and pharmacies." Participants will be able to input approximate arrival times, which their doctors can see. The new platform also allows for automatic payments, and friends and family members can use their own SOLVE tokens to pay for the ride in part or in full if their loved one is unable to afford the cost.
