Chris Cruttenden: We focus on the Safety Net population - Paubox

The mother of all healthcare conferences, HIMSS Annual, went down this month at the Venetian in Las Vegas. At least 40,000 people descended upon the Sands Expo Center to network, learn and probably do a bit of gambling.

Chris Cruttenden: We focus on the Safety Net population

While there, we setup an impromptu interview center outside Palazzo Ballroom L.

My friend Chris Cruttenden, President of Safety Net Connect, stopped by to catch up.

Here’s a transcript of our conversation around the term Safety Net population:

Hoala Greevy: Can you tell us more about this safety net concept, because I was very unfamiliar with it.

Chris Cruttenden: When we first got into the business, we found there was so much low-hanging fruit and county health systems where we could do a lot of good. We’ve basically focused on just the safety net population, which is in California, Medi-Cal or indigent programs which is basically county-run programs that deal with people that are uninsured, homeless people, and whatnot.

We created basically everything that high-tier people get with private insurance, we created an electronic system that allows them to have appropriate care coordination, services, efficient referrals, and when they show up at the myriad of different places, their information follows them. Which is really nice.

Hoala Greevy: That’s cool, man.
