NaviNet and Health Plan Executive to Discuss Multi-Payer Portals, Care Gap Alerts and Improved Care Management at the Care

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NaviNet, America’s largest real-time healthcare communications network, announced that Catherine Weston, vice president of account management for NaviNet, and Joseph Miller, director, e-business, AmeriHealth Mercy Family of Companies, will speak at Forum 10, a leading conference on wellness, prevention and chronic care management by The Care Continuum Alliance, held in Washington, D.C., October 13-15, 2010. Conference presenters, including National Health IT Coordinator David Blumenthal, will discuss ways to demonstrate value and improve outcomes under healthcare reform, and new opportunities for wellness and prevention of chronic disease.

In a presentation in the Forum’s Transforming Care through Technology educational track, Weston and Miller will explain how health plans can use multi-payer portals to leverage Web-based administrative office processes, such as electronic eligibility and benefits inquiries, to trigger delivery of timely, critical patient clinical information to enhance care management programs. Based on the success that AmeriHealth Mercy has had with its clinical alerts program, which delivers care gap messages to provider offices through NaviNet, the session will explore best practices for integrating real-time clinical alerts into already-established office processes, and will examine the resulting benefits for physician offices and patients.
