FALLS CHURCH, Va., June 12 /PRNewswire/ -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced that it will team with HealthTrio LLC to add portal and personal health record (PHR) solutions to CSC's FirstPortfolio offering for health plans and other payer clients. The added components include HealthTrio connect and HealthTrio PHR solutions.
Launched in October 2007, FirstPortfolio provides users with a collection of configurable applications that are hosted and maintained by CSC. Through the alliance with HealthTrio, FirstPorfolio now offers a comprehensive and customizable PHR system with integrated data and automated workflow. HealthTrio also provides online access to providers and members. Providers can verify eligibility and plan benefits, confirm coverage, and submit referrals and authorizations.

"By adding these elements, CSC enables health plans to provide critical administrative information and services to their membership and provider groups via the Internet," said Deward Watts, president of CSC's Global Healthcare Sector. "This will help clients improve the level of service they deliver, increase customer and provider satisfaction, and reduce both manual processes and the cost of doing business. We are pleased to announce these robust enhancements."
