What problem are you solving?:
There is a substantial part of healthcare that is being paid by patient’s cash (dentists, electable surgeries, top up fees for births). This is a new market though and the information is very much disintegrated. Hence patients have difficult time choosing the best services at best price (unlike, say, in groceries). This limits the market’s competition and efficiency and also leads to corruption.
Describe your idea:
To create a site that would centralize information about prices and quality of selected health services (we would recommend starting with Births portal). Feedback on quality would be crowd-sourced from parents with the experience (including photos, e.g.). Prices would for the start be periodically found out by inquiring volunteers, later hopefully sent back by hospitals themselves.
What country will this operate in?: Slovakia
Who are you?:
