The summer season prior to Alamin Uddin was set to start medical school, he worked as a receptionist in a small medical professional’s office in the Bronx.
There, dealing with the workflow of handling paper and electronic health records, arranging and scheduling patients’ follow-ups and check outs, he recognized that a person of the biggest challenges to quality look after many patients stays the lack of integration of medical records.
In the years given that the first electronic medical records laws were passed, the pledge of an integrated single source of client information is still mostly illusory.

And why financiers wanted to provide the pair $12 million to build out their API offering a gateway between client information in health records from medium-sized and little independent physicians and centers and developers.
For the majority of little centers and independent practices, the advantages of opening up EHRs to designers isn’t entirely clear, so NexHealth is proving the use case for them with an initial suite of tools like online scheduling, automated patient interactions and payments, the company stated.
Up until now, the business has established APIs to support around 50 electronic health record combinations, and is managing the caseload for around 10.4 million patients.
Business like Quip and DoctorLogic are already using the business’s API to incorporate with those health records.
“The requirement is that designers don’t have the tools they require to innovate in SMB healthcare,” Uddin composed in an e-mail. “We’re building those tools to help designers rapidly go to market in the SMB health care area.”
Backing the company is a collection of super angels, including James Beshara of Tilt and Airbnb popularity; Joshua Hannah, from Betfair; Rahul Vohra, the creator of Superhuman; Harry Stebbings, from The Twenty Minute VC; AngelList’s Naval Ravikant; Scott Belsky from Adobe and Behance; and Christoph Janz of Point Nine Capital.
The independent healthcare market represents 70% of a consumer’s interaction with health care and nobody is servicing those independent offices, according to Uddin. These are places like dental professionals, chiropractors, little, minute centers and urgent care facilities or independent healthcare professionals.
“We want to allow innovation in the health care system,” Uddin said, and he believes these small businesses are the very best location to begin.
