All My Doctors: A platform for primary care access to specialist recommendations

Problem

A major gap in communication exists among professionals in a single patient’s care team. In the D.C. area alone, healthcare providers utilize several different medical records systems which all, unfortunately, have incompatible EMRs. Due to this disconnect, specialists are often unable to identify a patient’s primary care physician. Similarly, the primary care doctor remains unaware of any diagnoses or treatments offered by the specialist to his or her referred patient.

Task

Develop a platform to allow physicians who are part of a single patient’s care team to gain access to the patient’s full history of medical records.
