change:healthcare Announces Twitter Application that brings Healthcare Information and Costs to Consumers' Fingertips
Date:9/24/2009

ian is prescribing, then we've got an answer. If you want to know more about the flu virus, we get you started on finding out more.

"It's the first time ever that consumers can use an existing social media application to quickly discover - wherever they are -- how they can save money on their healthcare. We already have the next iteration in beta that significantly broadens the information for consumers," Parks said.

To work effectively, users first need to "follow" @askch from their Twitter account. Then, it's simply a matter of asking questions via direct message (to keep responses confidential).

For the beta launch, change:healthcare identified the five most consistently asked questions at their website. As users provide more feedback about the service and their information needs via the @askch page, the types of information and questions will be expanded.

The search is most effective using a pre-defined format: What is (health issue); What is (drug name); Cost of (drug name) near (zipcode); Generic for (drug name); and Generic discounts for (drug name) near (zipcode). Messages should be asked as listed and without punctuation.

For those that need it, the company has developed a simple tutorial at http://ask.changehealthcare.com/.

A technology firm focused on helping people save money and make informed healthcare consumer decisions, change:healthcare provides its users access to information about medical provider quality, cost, access and performance. There's even an alert function that proactively notifies users when there's a cost savings opportunity.

The company's core business is providing employers and employees relevant and easy-to-use information about where in their area they can get the most cost-effective treatment, services and prescriptions.
