DARIEN, Ill., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Darien, IL-based Healthation announced PrimeWest Health of Alexandria, MN has selected its AboveHealth(R) Provider Portal to deliver interactive self-service capabilities to its provider community. Important to PrimeWest's decision was a proven track record of integrating with the plan's existing claim system and the ability for providers to submit claims directly through the provider portal.
The AboveHealth solution is a tightly integrated suite of Web portals designed to give healthcare payers a platform for building and maintaining electronic relationships with members, employers, providers and brokers. The solution is designed to integrate with a payer's existing claims processing and business systems infrastructure through a variety of techniques including real time Web Services, single sign-on and a proprietary engine that maps payer system interfaces to standardized transaction sets.
As healthcare continues to transform into a more consumer oriented marketplace, the company believes business users will want to assert more control over the functionality of their software systems. According to Ben Embree, Director of Application Development for the AboveHealth suite, "Healthation's overall design strategy is based on two architectural tenants; to push the envelope on rules driven user-configurability and to leverage real time Web Services as the primary means of integrating with external systems."
Darien, IL-based Healthation is a healthcare technology company helping payers and administrators improve business performance with user-driven benefits management and transaction processing solutions. Healthation's goal is to accelerate a retail transformation in healthcare with a real-time, open exchange platform. The company's AcceleHealth(R) solution is the industry's only 100 percent Web-based payer system built to administer benefits across all lines of business including dental, medical, vision, AD&D, life and pharmacy.
