Refactoring healthcare.

Flexpa is dedicated to working on healthcare problems in a future that is messy and complicated and needs to bend to patients and people. We're on a mission to refactor healthcare by making it easy for users to share claims data with any application they want to in seconds. We’ve built the fastest, simplest, HIPAA-compliant method for accessing identified claims data from anyone.

The future belongs to those who show up. We're showing up for a future where you can actually own your health data in the way you own the rest of your digital life (it is yours after all).

A brief history

Flexpa was started as Automate Medical and announced publicly in March, 2020. From the start, we believed that most of the upside in healthcare is still in the future. We focussed on an isolated problem to start: the time and cost of interpreting the (very common) pulmonary function test.

Our work on these early product prototypes culminated in our publication of a FHIR Implementation Guide for Pulmonary Function Tests. This publication also led us to refocus on developing better dev tooling for the FHIR community and away from a specific focus on PFTs.

We became increasingly involved in the healthcare standards development community - attending HL7 Connectathons and testing original implementations. By August of year one, we released Sero: a set of modern JavaScript Modules for FHIR. Flexpa as a product vision began to crystallize soon after.

Building on our work as Automate Medical, we became convinced of the immense opportunity of patient-directed access to their health data, specifically, their claims data. Flexpa believes in putting patients first by giving them access to their health information and claims data when they need it most, and, in a way that they can best use it.

And thus, Flexpa was born and our name originates from our belief in Flexible Patient Access.
