Honorable Mention: Patients First

FAIR Health

FAIR Health’s Patients First entry combines a universal patient identifier with a financial intermediary that takes responsibility for billing patients and paying providers over the patient’s lifetime. The services provided by this intermediary include an estimate of patient costs before a medical service is performed, a monthly billing cycle, and a global electronic medical record.

"I definitely think that this design should be an honorable mention for the medical ID number. This is a similar concept to what is used in the NHS, and it makes it much easier to transport records and seek treatment wherever you may be."


"They got rid of the EOB! I like how this solution provides patients with access to their own information regardless of changing insurance companies. This addresses cost estimation and provides a single monthly statement. They take care of things for the consumer."
