Arizona Care Network to use Solve.Care's blockchain tech

Arizona Care Network, an ACO based in Phoenix, is piloting Solve.Care's blockchain technology, cloud computing and cognitive learning capabilities to improve healthcare delivery and reduce administrative burdens, the organization announced March 1.

The ACN platform created by Solve.Care helps caregivers coordinate with a decentralized approach to deliver the right provider the right information. The platform, which updates in real-time, allows organizations to create, store and share administrative and financial records so organizations can check patient eligibility and benefits details, as well as coordinate care and eliminate delays in payer reimbursement. Its goal is to solve a number of healthcare administration issues and reduce the number of tasks required to administer health benefits.

"Technology was supposed to streamline administrative systems to make healthcare safer and more efficient. But one of the biggest headaches for physicians is the necessity to use so many different technology solutions and none of them talk to each other, which delays updates, or misses them altogether. This can adversely affect patients and their health," Ed Clarke, MD, CMO for ACN, said in a press release. "Practices have bought all these technology 'solutions' but they sometimes create more problems."
