Solve.Care / Lyft partnership
On March 4, 2019, The Ride-sharing/hailing company, Lyft announced a partnership with a blockchain/healthcare company called Solve.Care- a global healthcare IT company that’s developed a blockchain platform for coordination, administration, and real-time payments. Solve.Care wallet holders will be able to schedule their own Lyft rides to doctors’ offices, hospitals, and pharmacies with the ability to schedule for a desired arrival time. The Solve.Care app is available already but the actually deployment of the integration is still in progress. In my next episode, # 28, I speak to Pradeep Geol, the CEO of Solve.Care about this project among other interesting things. I think this is a great use case because lack of transportation to a site of care is such a problem for many patients. Lyft has already showed much interest in getting into the healthcare space evidenced by its existing collaborations with Blue Cross Blue Shield and Humana.
