Polka is a secure aggregation and collaboration service to help users manage their health, backed by Polka’s core technology and the belief that data portability begins with “me.”
WHY IT IS IMPORTANT AND COMPELLING
Today’s complex healthcare system grapples with outdated paper systems and unconnected, diverse IT systems, resulting in a lack of timely, accurate information and collaboration, as well as costly financial and treatment errors in patients’ healthcare. All of us deal with difficult, if not impossible, access to our own health information and archaic ways to communicate with our health team.
Polka keeps users’ health information up-to-date and available anytime, anywhere — whether it’s for routine check-ups, daily prescription and supplement tracking, during the critical moment of emergencies, or seamless sharing and communication within users’ core team of family, friends, and health professionals.
ABOUT POLKA’S TECHNOLOGY
Polka is a secure, scalable framework that was designed as an encompassing service for the individual, as a person, connecting to the network. Polka creates every service with the user at the center and data portability top of mind. They believe that the user, or “me,” should be centralized because they are the definitive point of control, change, and decision-making.
