New Partnership to Enable Cost Savings and Rapid ROI Across the Continuum of Care
NantHealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: NH), a next-generation, evidence-based, personalized healthcare company, today announced its partnership with The Health Plan, a clinically driven, technology-enhanced and customer-focused health maintenance organization, to increase operating efficiency, lower costs and improve provider satisfaction via the full suite of NaviNet® Open Multi-Payer Portal applications.
The Health Plan is one of the largest locally managed care organizations in West Virginia and Ohio, serving over 200,000 covered lives, and is committed to providing high quality, comprehensive and cost-effective healthcare to members.
NaviNet Open is a leading payor-provider collaboration platform, enhancing communication between health plans and providers to increase operating efficiency, lower costs, improve provider satisfaction and enable expansion. As organizations develop more value-based product lines to support the transition to value-based care, provider alignment and actionable data prior to care delivery becomes critical. To enable these capabilities, health plans and providers need a flexible, extensible infrastructure that fosters collaboration and encourages interoperability. NaviNet Open delivers vital administrative and clinical information to providers in real-time, so they can quickly and easily communicate across multiple health plans.
"NantHealth’s NaviNet Open delivers an easy-to-use full-service application capable of reducing customer service calls and manual processes," said Jason Landers, Senior Vice President Provider Delivery Services, The Health Plan. "Considering that 85% of our provider networks are active NaviNet Open users, we’ll immediately have the ability to securely and quickly obtain both clinical and administrative functions, with minimal provider adoption effort. This alone is a huge differentiator for us, and we’re projecting a positive ROI in the first year of usage."
Under terms of the partnership, NaviNet Open will drive The Health Plan’s provider engagement strategy through the NaviNet Open portal, comprised of Eligibility and Benefits, Claims Status Inquiry, Claims Management, Authorizations, Referrals and Document Exchange. The portal will enhance communications by building trust, boosting provider satisfaction, and more closely aligning to value-based outcomes.
"We’re excited to be working in partnership with The Health Plan to enable a direct connection with their provider networks with an outcome of impressive cost savings, ongoing support, product improvements, and enhanced communications," said Mark Mozley, Senior Vice President, Global Sales & Marketing, NantHealth. "NaviNet Open will continue to drive towards The Health Plan’s overarching goals to achieve instant ROI with decreased administrative costs and an improved provider network collaboration."
