HealthSparq and DocASAP Partner to Streamline Access to Care for Health Plan Members
Strategic partnership to enhance the patient experience by offering comprehensive provider and cost search with accurate, real-time online scheduling in one platform
PORTLAND, ORE. AND HERNDON, VA. (PRWEB) APRIL 24, 2019–HealthSparq, a health care guidance and transparency technology company reaching –more than 76 million health plan members, and DocASAP, the industry’s most advanced patient access and engagement platform for health systems, payors and physician groups, have announced a partnership to help health plans boost member satisfaction by improving access to quality, cost-effective and in-network providers.
Today, millions of health plan members have access to the HealthSparq One platform through their health plan portals where they can search for providers, get out-of-pocket cost estimates, read patient reviews and more. DocASAP works with premier health systems across the U.S. to help navigate patients to the right provider and care setting at the right time. The two companies will work together to integrate DocASAP’s accurate, real-time online scheduling with HealthSparq’s comprehensive provider and cost search all in one platform.
“Health plans invest a great deal in their provider networks so people can get high-quality medical care, but the member experience is fragmented,” said Mark Menton, HealthSparq CEO. “DocASAP shares our commitment to personalizing experiences and guiding people through complex health care situations. Our complementary solutions can help us deliver better health care experiences for members and drive greater efficiency for providers and health plans.”
By combining HealthSparq’s and DocASAP’s capabilities, health plans and providers will be able to deliver the frictionless experience consumers demand. DocASAP integrates with practice management systems and automates providers’ complex scheduling intake rules, protocols and workflows to help facilitate accurate patient-provider matching and online scheduling.
