Stewart Brathwaite, CEO, and founder of RapidNotes has a goal to streamline all case management and collaboration into one master decentralized platform. This “one-stop shop,” allows constituents from all spectrums within healthcare, human services and social services the ability to collaborate, share data and utilize integrated solutions with one another and with the patients and clients they serve. He teamed up with software developer Lappin Hammond to create a multi-management SaaS solution that allows public users controlled access to the decentralized platform, making RapidNotes a virtual resource everyone can use.
Brathwaite created RapidNotes to streamline the continuum of care provided to the individuals in our communities. The RapidNotes team are finalists in The Farm Accelerator’s spring 2018 Cohort, where they eagerly wait to learn if they have been accepted for this amazing business opportunity. The program is a collaboration between Comcast’s NBCUniversal and Boomtown Accelerator. RapidNotes is competing to receive $20,000 in seed capital and an additional estimated $1.7 million in perks while receiving a complete business and management curriculum. If accepted this program will assist RapidNotes to provide the software solution that these industries, clients and patients deserve.
Out of the number of deaths reported last year, preventable medical errors were responsible for 400,000 of them. As healthcare negligence persists, despite the advances in technology and innovation, 86 percent of mistakes are caused due to administrative disregard. Stewart Brathwaite has created a SaaS solution to the problem. His decentralized case management collaboration platform was designed to improve the administrative workflow for managed health and social service organizations. The idea came to life in the late 2000’s when Brathwaite became fed up with the inconsistency in the recordkeeping and inefficient resources within the software systems that were being utilized while employed by New York social services agencies.
There are many challenges in healthcare and social services; the use of multiple systems stands as one of the biggest issues today. Each time an individual visits a hospital, detailed notes are left as a way to communicate with anyone providing further treatment. However, this administrative process can be flawed if the protocol isn’t followed or if a new agency doesn’t have access to this information. RapidNotes integrates shared data from registered users industry-wide, allowing an efficient collaborating process while focusing on improving case management and healthcare outcomes and quality solutions for agencies, providers, authorized users, clients, patients and people everywhere.
