OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HealthSplash, a healthcare startup determined to change interoperability within healthcare, announced today that it expects to release the first version of its consumer-facing app prior to the end of the second quarter this year.
This app can bring healthcare into the patients' hands and can eliminate the need to leave home in search of healthcare that can be delivered via telehealth solutions.
Telehealth connectivity between a patient and his or her primary care physician is not “revolutionary” in a stand-alone setting. Dozens of healthcare startups can boast the same function. For HealthSplash, however, this is only a first implementation of their larger array of SplashCare offerings to patients and providers.
“We are disrupting healthcare by changing the way we currently think about healthcare,” CEO Brett Blackman said. “We only go to the doctor after something happens. Healthcare won’t change until more is done to promote preventative care rather than reactive care.”
Blackman and his team have major plans to implement healthcare tools, services, and platform technologies that utilize the blockchain to facilitate interoperability between all players in the healthcare space including patients, providers, servicers, and payors (insurance companies, etc.).
The next features of the app include doctor reviews, appointment scheduling, compliance software, automated workflows, telemedicine, integrations with wearable technology, pharmacy delivery and lab services. Some of these features will be released by the end of this year.
When the platform is fully operational as planned, patients will have the ability to manage, share, and monitor their health from their phone, creating truly friction-free healthcare. This is possible through HealthSplash’s SplashCare, Splashables and SplashBots that are all coming down the pipeline (see technology video).
One of the most revolutionary innovations of the HealthSplash platform is the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) that creates interoperability for all healthcare sectors for the benefit of the patient. HealthSplash is changing the way patients shop for healthcare while also allowing providers to offer value-based care to their patients in new, efficient ways.
“It’s not a HealthSplash-owned system,” Blackman explains. “Those on the system will use HealthSplash tools to build the infrastructure, systems, processes, and workflows they need. The unique network itself is operated by everyone, governed by everyone, and integrates with everyone.”
Blackman and HealthSplash CTO Ron Sloop began building the HealthSplash network after discovering they had the ability to provide solutions to the U.S.’s inefficient healthcare system by applying the technology Sloop has already developed for other business models.
“We are uniquely qualified to build very large-scale distributed transactional processing systems,” Sloop said. “We’ve built some of the largest distributed systems which are running Fortune 50 companies today. We understand how to develop enterprise solutions that can scale without sacrificing user experience using new technologies such as DLT (Distributed Ledger Technology),” Sloop said.
As a revenue-generating company, HealthSplash is looking for strategic partnerships with companies or investors that share HealthSplash’s vision. This will enable the HealthSplash team to accomplish its goals faster and continue their innovation at a steady pace. Funds would be used for the continued build out of Splash Services offered to patients through the app as well as new projects working on Medicaid eligibility with state-level governments.
Blackman and his team will attend the HLTH: The Future of Healthcare Sunday through Wednesday at the Aria Hotel and Casino to discuss their current revenue-generating model and debut the mobile app’s progress. They will meet with interested investors and venture capitalists who want to be involved in achieving the company’s vision.
