Potential disruptive mobile technology relative to the patient - healthcare provider relationship. Very efficient, time saving and user friendly for patients as well as extremely cost efficient for healthcare providers.

As Executive Director of the Extreme Tech Challenge, our judges ranked Open Treatment in our top 30 out of nearly 2,000 countries around the world. Our first reason was the team. The Founder is a Doctor. Another reason is a true painpoint we've all experienced that needs solved. And the third reason is that healthcare overall is in real need of innovation and it's truly trending right now in terms of investment.

The technology addresses assisting patient to be correctly triaged to ER or clinics. Large ROI
They also send secure medical information and images

Open treatment streamlines the patient process and saves hours of time in filing and filling patient intake documents, medical documents, insurance approval processes for patients and even helps get patients get to their appointments on time. This is a disruptor of the status quo in the medical profession and will help save money and create less stress in the whole system.

Its a great company making my headaches of finding a doctor that takes my insurance and will save me time. With my busy life, that is one less thing that I have to worry about.

Company description

Imagine needing to see a Doctor, or find a doctor while traveling and having your Intake Forms, Insurance Verified & Approved, All YOUR medical files, See Live ER Wait times, and Have an Uber pick you up in under 4 minutes to your appointment.

Based on your GPS OpenTreatment finds a physician that takes your insurance or you can simply search by type and location.  Once you select your Doctor you can send his office immediately your Intake form, insurance, medical files, Labs and X-rays.

Your Daughter has a Fever and you need to find an ER room nearest you. You will see LIVE ER Wait Times - Pick the closest one and that is it.  Again as an option a Uber will come and get you and when you arrive they know your daughters name, insurance is all set, medical files and any current X-rays and will see her at the time you select. It's that simple.  **(In cases where it is an Emergency and 911 is needed, OpenTreatment has contracted with the 2nd largest Ambulance Company in SF to ping the closest Ambulance using our technology vs a call center or dispatch that is not GPS centric) 

(9-1-1) 17-48 Minutes is average wait time today nation wide - vs with OpenTreatment 2-10 x faster! 

(1) Open Treatment is a "TSA Pre Board" for medicine. Patients fill out a simple history form or use the in-app medical file transfer function to reduce their wait times at participating hospitals--we're talking from 4 hrs 20 min to a 16 minute wait. 

(2) Open Treatment is like a Square reader for insurance cards. It gives Physicians the opportunity to quickly "read" insurance cards (via a patented process) so the doctors knows their patients' benefits (e.g. how much is left on their deductible). This is important to ensure timely billing and more transparency of the billing process.

(3) Open Treatment has a Uber-like map function for hospital wait times. Plus! The app connects with Uber to get a non-acute patient there faster than calling 911. Plus, Uber pays for the trip there. 

No more filling out the tedious intake forms, have insurance questioned, carry around medical files or's all with one push of a button.

Competitive advantage

OpenTreatment was created and patented to capitalize on todays market opportunity by providing integrated mobile app and web-based software modules that deliver patient demand management (PDM) through the following: 

  • Drive Continuous Demand:  OpenTreatment will enable patients to deliver timely Intake forms and insurance verifications and authorization to any hospital/practice prior their visit(s) through a mobile app and or web based application.  These Intake forms and insurance authorizations will be delivered by the OpenTreatment patient and will include integrated EMR communication. 
  • Drive Instant Demand: Having a one-time intake form that is updated regularly that can be delivered to any of your medical providers electronically and seamless is what OpenTreatment delivers.  OpenTreatrment will also enable businesses (Insurance companies) to deliver targeted promotions based on specific customer criteria.  This functionality will allow OpenTreatments patients to get best insurance quotes during times of constant changes in the industry. 
  • Drive New Demand:  Prior to the world wide web, medical service businesses attract new customers primarily through referrals from existing customers.  At OpenTreatment, having a mobile app and  online web presence with existing providers on platform will greatly enhance visibility and those taking patients insurance and make it a one step process.
  • Ensure Future Demand:  It is ten times more cost effective to keep an existing patient than to bring in a new patient.  To effectively monitor customer satisfaction, OpenTreatment will deliver an online customer satisfaction survey to each customer immediately after service has been performed.  The OpenTreatment customer will know instantly if a customer is happy, or more importantly, if a customer is unhappy.  This functionality will provide important feedback to the business and assist them in keeping customers who may otherwise chose to take their business elsewhere. 

It is expected that each OpenTreatment customer will generate a minimum of $40 in new revenue for each $1 they spend on OpenTreatment each month.
