What’s the missing link in helping patients manage their healthcare? For Darla Brown, cancer survivor and Co-Founder of Intake.me it’s being able to easily access health records between different healthcare providers. The problem? Interoperability between EHR providers and the ease of accessing medical records.  In looking at the problem from the patient’s perspective Darla and her co-founder Dr. Emily Lu joined forces to develop a platform to enable unifying a patient medical history. Intake.me is easy to access, intuitive and free to the patient. The beta version of Intake.me launches in October 2015. Listen to our conversation or drop in at the time stamps below:
