Our Journey Towards Transforming Healthcare
Data is the backbone of modern-day industries.
Data is the backbone of modern-day industries. In healthcare, platforms have not been designed with interoperability in mind: focused on billing, scheduling, and accessing electronic records with significant data privacy requirements, health data today is locked in disparate systems that are difficult to access. As a result, utilizing health information is complex and costly for patients and providers alike. Stakeholders have ended up with a limited ability to leverage the power of data.
Lack of access ultimately prevents patients from receiving the best possible care at the right cost. To overcome these barriers and create a more efficient health ecosystem, our founders, Ricky Sahu and Gajen Sunthara, had a vision: to leverage the power of interoperability. By transforming healthcare, they could change how care is delivered, how patients access their medical information, and how care costs are distributed. They understood that there was a better way to manage healthcare information by leveraging available technologies. Starting in 2017, 1upHealth rose to the challenge, and today we have set the foundation for the impact that interoperability can have on the industry.
