Providers and payers nationwide are challenged to find ways to cut costs and drive efficiency in their organizations while also facing pressure to create better consumer experiences. InstaMed developed a blockchain prototype that offers a way to significantly reduce manual processes and paper communications while giving all stakeholders the visibility into the full lifecycle of a patient encounter.

“Since Bill Marvin and I co-founded InstaMed in 2004, we have been passionate believers in bringing connectivity to healthcare payments. We have participated in creating industry standards for driving the electronic movement of healthcare data and money,” said Chris Seib, Chief Technology Officer of InstaMed. “The InstaMed Innovation team is constantly looking at the latest trends in technology, and it made sense to explore ways to use blockchain technology in healthcare payments with its potential to increase connectivity among all stakeholders. The InstaMed Healthcare Payments Summit gave us a great opportunity to get real-time feedback on our blockchain prototype from leading providers and payers. We’re excited about the momentum and possibilities coming out of the conference.”

InstaMed has an open call for industry participants to join the conversation around blockchain in healthcare payments. Learn more about InstaMed’s blockchain prototype and view a video overview at www.instamed.com/blockchain.
