Interview: How K Health Uses Data To Help Patients Find The Right Medical Treatment
With primary care app K Health, founder Allon Bloch hopes to help fix healthcare from the outside by connecting consumers and collecting data
Though it can't replace the diagnosis of a real doctor, K Health is a new smartphone app that helps consumers identify symptoms in real time and compare them against a vast ocean of data collected from similar patients. The app hopes to keep patients who don't need treatment out of the doctor's office, while helping those who do need to visit a hospital or physician's office find the correct treatment.
PSFK spoke to founder and CEO Allon Bloch about his company's commitment to making better care accessible to all and fixing what he considers to be a broken U.S. healthcare system.
