Charter/other text describing objectives

Synaptic Health Alliance joins leaders in healthcare to explore how blockchain technology can help address some of the toughest problems in healthcare. Synaptic’s members include Aetna, Ascension, Humana, MultiPlan, Optum, Quest Diagnostics, and UnitedHealthcare.

Healthcare provider data is an essential building block of today’s health system, feeding activities such as claims processing, payment integrity processes, provider and member attribution, provider directories, and more. Today, managed care organizations, health systems, physicians, diagnostic information service providers and other healthcare stakeholders typically collect provider demographic data in separate IT systems maintained by each organization independently. This promotes vast inefficiencies and duplication of efforts, while also potentially reducing data quality.
