At PatientPing, we believe that everyone should experience seamless healthcare.

 


Our Story

When we're sick, we rely on teams of providers and caregivers to heal us. Our healthcare system, however, does not always make it easy for providers to coordinate with one another. The average elderly patient sees seven different providers each year. Those with chronic conditions or serious illness can see more than 25 across unaffiliated facilities like primary care clinics, emergency rooms, hospitals, rehab facilities, and home health agencies. A combination of poorly designed financial incentives and disconnected information systems often leaves care teams in the dark when it comes to their patients’ past medical encounters.

The good news is that the U.S. healthcare system is undergoing a sweeping transformation to prioritize better care delivery and coordination. Still, a troubling reality exists: providers often don't know, in real time, when and where their patients receive care.

Our solution is straightforward, focused, and impactful. We are building a national community of engaged providers who receive real-time clinical notifications, called “Pings,” whenever and wherever their patients receive care. We believe that by enabling better communication across patients’ care teams, we can improve care quality, lower costs, and enable safer, more seamless care transitions.

At PatientPing, we are dedicated to revolutionizing healthcare through lightweight, effective technology. Our mission is simple: connecting providers to seamlessly coordinate patient care.
