drchrono is building out a new service called onpatient, reports TechCrunch. Onpatient seeks to be the de facto online source for patient medical records and integrates with drchrono. drchrono (YC W11) is a medical platform for doctors and patients. drchrono uses the portability of the iPad to make patient Electronic Healthcare Records (EHRs) more accessible and also speed-up the process of patient check-in.
Eligible (YC S12) is creating a set of technical interfaces that enable interoperability of the myriad data systems between doctors and insurance companies. A major goal with Eligible is reduction of the time that it takes healthcare providers to conclude whether a patient’s insurance provider will pay for specific services and procedures. TechCrunch details how Obamacare mandates and also the financial benefits to the medical industry create a very real opportunity for Eligible.
