Problem The last-mile problem--insufficient information at point of care—endangers 98% of U.S. patients, through medical errors, surprise bills and other low-quality, high-cost patient outcomes. At each healthcare encounter, patients and family caregivers struggle to fully inform current providers about complex data that is scattered in low- to high-tech record silos. Meanwhile, providers and payers are unprepared for compliance with CMS and ONC interoperability rules effective 1/1/20 that reinforce patients’ rights of data access under HIPAA and 21st Century Cures Act or for emerging state rules related to consumer privacy and surprise billing. Solution What Uber does for transportation (by enabling passengers to book rides and drivers to accept rides free from friction with taxi dispatchers), RedKangaroo does for healthcare encounters (by enabling patients and providers to exchange information free from friction with record silos and regulations). What we make In August 2019, based on our two U.S. patents issued in 2019 and others pending, we soft-launched the RedKangaroo Interoperability Platform for HL7 FHIR standards-based, patient-authorized exchange of provider-sourced data with EHR-deprived and EHR-equipped providers. The free RK360 app for consumers:

  •  Geolocates in-health-plan-network providers;
  • Drives patient-authorized data exchange with all providers with National Provider Identifiers (NPIs);
  • Is auto-populated from electronic health record systems in the growing Apple Health network; and
  • Grows patient-owned cloud records from provider-sourced clinical and claims encounter results

The $30/mo RK360 subscription app for providers (payable by Medicaid, CHIP and commercial insurers):

  • Fits into low-to high-tech, fax to advanced EHR, workflows;
  • Generates leads to in-health-plan-network patients;
  • Streamlines patient-authorized data exchange; and,
  • Outsources compliance with state, federal and EU patient-data regulations effective January 1, 2020
