Information utilities gather, process, or distribute digital information on a usage basis just like energy utilities. Information Utilities provide very business-friendly options for outsourcing non-core mission-critical functions. And the market is only just getting started.
The goal of the future PCMH approach is to improve the country’s overall health by providing better access to higher-quality healthcare. But many organizations lack the tools to communicate effectively with their providers while providing transparent coverage to their constituents.
Payers that make access to information easy for their providers by consolidating patient information, HEDIS objectives, and provider reimbursement schedules in a single location consistently report improved compliance, enhanced provider retention, and superior patient outcomes.
Healthcare Payers that work with the right portal provider enjoy the benefits of agile development that evolves across a wide array of platform tools without soaking up IT time or budget, integrating proprietary systems without creating additional legacy obligations.
Health plans that use data delivery and communications solutions like the Healthx Provider Portal benefit from vision into their businesses, increased participation, and the ability to uncover opportunities to maximize the value of their provider network.
Payers that integrate and deliver patient and payer data for maximum provider usefulness achieve significantly higher HEDIS scores, increase provider satisfaction, and experience significant improvements in patient outcomes – all of which means improved quality care for your members and a better bottom line.
Plan members are adopting technology at a proliferating rate. However, most health plans lag behind in offering more accessible technology. Healthx Mobile Apps is the integrated solution that gives members all the crucial information seen in their Member Portal. By providing crucial healthcare information like ID Cards, Provider Directory, Medical and Claims Information, Account Balances, etc., straight to a user’s smartphone, organizations can offer more value and engage their members in a more convenient and meaningful way.
Health care payers need to expand beyond typical channels to bring information to members. Those organizations that use digital channels to reach members in their preferred method, shape behaviors and improve outcomes, while watching the per member benefits increase.
The mHealth revolution has begun, creating the opportunity to address one of healthcare’s most pressing challenges: making healthcare more accessible, faster, better and cheaper. In a recent study by PwC, 82% of patients with poorly managed conditions are likely to engage or are already engaging in mHealth solutions. So, with more than 17,000 mHealth apps and devices currently available in major app stores, the Payer has an unprecedented opportunity to improve the health of its members by engaging them at the ground level.
Health plans that give access to data that guides the clinical and business decisions made by the ACO, help to ensure the success of their ACO partners and contacts, and drive member engagement and provider satisfaction.
