NEW YORK and SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- K Health, a digital health company that offers free personalized healthcare, and Health Gorilla, a leader in secure interoperability solutions, announced today a collaboration to power new clinical functionality to improve the primary care experience. K Health can now leverage Health Gorilla's FHIR-based APIs to place orders with diagnostic vendors.
K has created the first and only AI-driven primary care solution that allows users to see how doctors diagnose and treat similar people with similar symptoms for free by chatting with a cutting-edge AI that has been trained on a uniquely large dataset from billions of anonymized clinical data points. Users can then chat with a doctor for fast, personalized care that costs dramatically less than care options currently available to most consumers. Health Gorilla's API provides instant connectivity to a wide network of diagnostic vendors, enabling providers to place electronic orders and receive test results in a structured format. Leveraging Health Gorilla's network of providers, hospitals, and diagnostic facilities, K Health will enable its providers to power lab ordering for users, delivering timely clinical recommendations to patients.
"APIs are transforming the product development process for digital health developers," said Sergio Wagner, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-founder of Health Gorilla. "We're thrilled to be working with K Health to power better care for tens of thousands of patients across the country, leveraging the diversity, breadth, and depth of our network."
"At K Health, we're continually pushing the boundaries of how artificial intelligence can improve primary care for everyone," said Scott Chesrown, Chief Operating Officer at K Health.
