DocASAP Announces Strategic Alliance with HATCX
Blue Cross Blue Shield Nebraska patients can easily book appointments online with the right healthcare providers
HERNDON, VA. (PRWEB) AUGUST 06, 2018–DocASAP today announced a strategic alliance with HATCX. HATCX’s product HATCX I cost is a simple, easy-to-use app that lets Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska patients determine the cost of medical services. It accesses patients’ specific insurance benefits to ensure the most accurate estimates. It also allows patients to compare providers and pricing to choose the best options. The app is free and currently includes features such as a cost transparency tool, doctor finder, and the ability to rate and review providers and facilities.
Using DocASAP, patients can easily book or reschedule appointments with a provider online 24/7 by leveraging online channels they already use and trust. Real-time availability helps patients see which physicians are available at their preferred time, all without ever having to pick up the phone. DocASAP will integrate with the HATCX I cost app and be the online appointment scheduling (OAS) portion of their solution.
“Working together, HATCX I cost and DocASAP enable BCBS Nebraska members to compare providers and pricing to choose the right provider for their specific needs, and easily book appointments,” said Christina Ochsner, Partner at HATCX. “We are truly advancing Blue Cross Blue Shield Nebraska’s mission of providing affordable patient-focused care to Nebraskans.”

HATCX is an innovation lab that develops new ideas to help people better navigate and access healthcare. It started as a challenge within Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska and came up with the concept of an app that made health care easier to understand and navigate. The team was asked to continue building out their ideas under Genesys Innovations LLC, a subsidiary of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska, and HATCX was born. In May 2017, HATCX’s first app, HATCX | cost, was released on iTunes and Google Play. The app is free and includes features such as a cost transparency tool, doctor finder, and the ability to rate and review providers and facilities. In the year since the app launched, HATCX | cost has gained nearly 10,000 downloads and currently averages 4.25 (out of five) stars in both app stores. Data shows HATCX | cost users spend about 17 percent less on their claims versus those who don’t use the app.
