A Changing Healthcare Industry

Health plans today are adapting to evolving business models — while working to tackle significant challenges, including:

  • Members expect immediate, high-quality and accurate answers, regardless of the service channel chosen
  • The information members need to understand their benefits often resides in multiple places, making it difficult for them to find, understand and consume
  • Call center agents can waste valuable time searching for disparate, granular data, contributing to high average cost-per-member calls

We are moving to a more self-service economy, with members shifting away from traditional channels, wanting to engage on their own terms.
