Palo Alto, California, Dec. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Health Gorilla, the leading provider of interoperability solutions in Latin America, and Snabb, Chile’s most prominent healthcare scheduling platform, have partnered to create one of Chile’s first national laboratory networks.
Snabb has built clinical partnerships with a variety of providers in Chile and allows patients to quickly schedule an appointment with any telehealth provider or health center integrated with their network. By analyzing the availability of integrated physicians, Snabb is able to quickly provide patients with available appointment options, boost their provider’s occupancy rates, and support the back-office staff who traditionally schedule and confirm appointments.
By leveraging Health Gorilla’s FHIR-based clinical data APIs, Snabb will be able to centralize lab and imaging orders with Chile’s leading diagnostic providers, enabling its physicians to place orders and receive test results in real-time. This partnership will also eliminate the need for Snabb’s suppliers to build one-off connections to lab networks, which can be a costly and time-consuming integration.
“Snabb’s goal is to put the patient at the center of the model, giving them freedom of choice, along with the ability to move their physician orders or health records, independent of the provider,” said Renato Pino Zamora, Founder, and CEO of Snabb.
When operational, the lab network will power a diverse set of use cases, including telemedicine, remote patient monitoring, and care coordination, all of which will support physicians in the Snabb network, enabling them to deliver a more comprehensive and effective patient experience.
“We are very pleased to partner with Snabb as they begin developing one of the first national laboratory networks in Chile,” said Javier Jiménez Jirau, Health Gorilla’s Vice President of Latin America and Government. “Health Gorilla has seen a tremendous amount of success with our secure clinical network in the U.S. and know that by combining Snabb’s technology and leadership with our clinical FHIR APIs, we can replicate that success in Chile.”
Snabb is Health Gorilla’s first Chilean partner and will be a pivotal ally as they continue expanding into other Latin American markets, looking to implement clinical data solutions for their patients and providers.
Health Gorilla has achieved several safety certifications from government agencies and other leading healthcare organizations, is SOC-2 Type 2 compliant, and is audited on a routine basis.
