BROOKFIELD, Wis. and INDIANAPOLIS — April 11, 2017 — Connecture, Inc. (NASDAQ: CNXR), a provider of web-based information systems used to create health insurance marketplaces, and Healthx, Inc., the leader in cloud-based digital engagement solutions for healthcare payers and other stakeholders, announced today they are collaborating to integrate Connecture’s smart shopping, enrollment and engagement solutions with Healthx’s portal technology.
The collaboration between Connecture and Healthx offers payer customers, such as commercial health plans and third party administrators (TPAs), a comprehensive set of benefits tools that they can choose from based on their customers’ needs. Connecture’s health insurance shopping, enrollment and administration technology will integrate with the Healthx member, employer and broker portals. This solution, along with Healthx’s self-service tools, will further empower members to better manage their health.
“Connecture is laser-focused on providing the best end-to-end user experience for our customers and their members and employees,” said Jeff Surges, president and CEO of Connecture. “By incorporating Connecture’s smart technology into Healthx’s sophisticated member portals, we are ensuring that users have a simple way to shop for and enroll in medical and ancillary benefits, while also staying well connected and informed about their care, long after the point of plan enrollment.”
“Healthx has always been committed to enhancing member engagement to improve health outcomes while increasing administrative efficiency, and this relationship works to support that objective,” said Sean Downs, CEO for Healthx. “We are excited to work with Connecture, a fellow industry-leading partner, to provide a complementary technology that puts the member at the center of everything they do relative to their health. Through integration with Healthx, payers can now optimize digital engagement with their members throughout the entire member lifecycle, whether during enrollment, when members are well or need access to care, or when they are managing their healthcare finances and during benefit renewal.”
Helping Provider-Sponsored Health Plans and ACOs Provide a Holistic Experience for Member-Patients
According to Surges, the collaboration with Healthx also offers hospitals and health systems administering their own health plans and ACOs with a unique opportunity to provide their member-patients with powerful tools. This will help members better manage the cost of care and obtain important information about their health. Additionally, members can shop for and enroll in the medical and ancillary coverage that best meets their needs.
“Health insurance is ever-changing and complicated for most people,” added Surges. “For hospitals transitioning to a provider-sponsored health plan model, administering health insurance effectively and early-on in the patient-member healthcare journey, and supplementing that with streamlined benefits administration support, is key to member enrollment, engagement, satisfaction and renewal.”
Connecture and Healthx said the new integrated offering is now available for all types of health insurance carriers and provider organizations.
