Last week, Quest Analytics’ CEO Ari Tulla and President and Co-Founder John Weis presented a newly combined network adequacy and accuracy solution for health plans during a session at AHIP Institute 2018.
This conference brought together key healthcare industry players including health plans, health groups, policymakers, and providers in San Diego.
The combination of Quest Analytics’ network decision-support tools and BetterDoctor’s primary-source verified provider data management platform will enable health plans to provide their members with convenient access to an adequate network of doctors and hospitals and an up-to-date, accurate directory of network providers.
Quest Analytics is the first comprehensive platform, designed exclusively to solve the data accuracy challenges, that enables health plans to optimize their member experience while complying with federal and state regulations for network adequacy and accuracy. Additionally, health plans receive comprehensive support for any potential provider data audits.
Why are accurate and adequate networks important?
The cost of healthcare continues to climb, prompting health plans to narrow their networks. These resulting networks provide limited access to providers and cause surprise billing for consumers.
Weis shared with session attendees his own personal experience with surprise billing when his daughter faced an unexpected medical issue: “My own family faced this issue, and I know what I’m coming up against because I work in the industry. In an emergency, consumers need access to timely care without the fear of surprise billing. Our solution will help health plans create networks that are accurate and adequate for all consumers.”
Helping consumers find the care they need is what matters. Quest Analytics’ recent acquisition of BetterDoctor will help solve this problem more comprehensively with better data, better networks, and better consumer experience.
