Project Updates And Major Announcements
Solve.Care Partners with Uber Health to Deliver Medical Transport Service
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.

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.
“Solve.Care is continuously working to offer better access to medical care.

Solve.Care is a project that is focused on the healthcare industry. It utilizes blockchain in order to significantly reduce administration costs. As such, it unites all the stakeholders into a single, decentralized ecosystem and reduces the burden of doctors to fill in the required paperwork, allowing them to focus on delivering their service.
The project features a dual token system, where the Care.Coin is used for administrative costs, while the SOLVE token is used for participation in the project’s ecosystem. CEO of the company spent more 26 years in healthcare IT. Advisory board includes strong advisors with deep domain expertise as a congressman of the US James Moran, Karen Bowling – the former Cabinet Secretary of the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, former Pentagon’s deputy CIO Paul Brubaker.
The Solve.Care Foundation is registered in Estonia. Solve.Care Foundation acquired Ukrainian development company UkrSoft in 2017 and CEO invested his own money to found the Solve.Care company. The hard cap of the project amounted to USD 20 million, and the team raised 100% of it. In terms of the system, it is fully decentralized, as each participant could engage directly with the relevant counterparty, and the information flow does not go through a single point.
The product is already live and available in 80 countries worldwide. Solve.Care has the leading Accountable Care Organization in the US as a client.
Solve.Care is the first company which utilizes a digital currency and blockchain technology in healthcare for the value-based payments.
The business model of the company is focused on reducing the administrative costs of the healthcare industry, which could amount up to 30% of the total healthcare spending. The project targets all the stakeholders (including individuals, doctors and care providers, employers, insurers, developers, service providers, government agencies, administrators and brokers). All the information each stakeholder needs would be available through the Solve.Care platform, which is decentralized in nature. Solve.Care utilizes a dual-coin system: Care.Coin and Solve tokens. The former is pegged to fiat currencies, is backed by reserves and is not tradeable. However, it is used for Care Administration Network payments. The latter is an ERC-20 token, is tradeable on exchanges and is used for participating in the project's economy.

All of the issues are presented in moderate detail and provide a good insight into the back-end processes of the project.

Overall, the team appears to have presented, in detail, each of the components that are forming the complete ecosystem.
