Saint Mary’s Health Network has joined forces with Carbon Health, a technology-based healthcare provider, to boost patients’ access to healthcare in Reno-Sparks, Nevada.

With this collaboration, Carbon Health’s technology platform will be integrated with Saint Mary’s urgent care clinics which will aid the patients to access care via streamlined and virtual clinic visits.

The mobile app uses integrated artificial intelligence (AI) for the automation of the administration and to ease the workflow for healthcare providers.

With this platform, patients can schedule appointments, video visits, and interact with their care providers.

Carbon Health co-founder and CEO Eren Bali said: “We are thrilled to partner with Saint Mary’s and Prime Healthcare. Now, with Carbon Health’s technology, Saint Mary’s urgent care clinics will provide a seamless process that enables providers to meet patients where they are.

“This is indicative of the type of company we are building and the power of healthcare partnerships to accelerate access to world-class care.”

The platform was developed to increase the connection between providers and patients.  The platform will decrease the time spent on paperwork and free up time to tend to patients.

Prime Healthcare chief medical officer of strategy Kavitha Bhatia said: “Carbon’s unique platform enables patients to access care how and when they desire, creating an unparalleled patient experience. Prime Healthcare and Carbon Health’s strategic partnership allows Prime to integrate telehealth into our offerings and expand how we reach and connect with our patients.”

Saint Mary’s is a part of Prime Healthcare and has been a part of the healthcare business for 111 years.
