“With this legislation, some 49 million new consumers will be shopping for health plans in the next 18 months”
Kony’s Mobile Health Plan, Mobile Agent and Mobile Pharmacy are pre-configured and completely customizable solution suites that offer complete support for all seven mobile operating systems and virtually any smartphone, tablet, web browser, or other mobile device. The apps include all of the core functionality that a plan would expect to deploy to their members, agents and potential customers. Consumers can compare plan benefits, find a provider using location based services, view an electronic ID card, manage their prescriptions, view claims and much more. Agents and brokers can easily compare plan options, identify the best fit for a new customer and fulfill an enrollment. With these applications, Kony is offering Health Plans the tools they need to increase customer adoption and improve relationships with key stakeholders.
Because these applications are based on the versatile KonyOne Platform, healthcare organizations can easily extend and enhance the applications and address new channels, without having to rewrite or republish the applications. Applications can be deployed to market in 8 to 12 weeks and are ready to connect to existing web services, creating seamless integration with backend systems.
Kony’s customers include some of the U.S.’s leading healthcare and insurance organizations, including Aetna, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, Independence Blue Cross, and Intermountain Healthcare.
Kony also announced it is offering a webinar to assist healthcare organizations in using mobile and multi-channel technology to tackle some of the issues related to the U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
“With this legislation, some 49 million new consumers will be shopping for health plans in the next 18 months,” said Matt Brown, director of Healthcare Strategy for Kony. “This will mean a dramatic shift towards direct-to-consumer marketing and increased demand for mobile solutions among payers who previously focused on acquiring customers through their employers. It will be more important than ever for healthcare organizations to offer a high-quality, branded and customized experience on any of the mobile devices or channels that customers want to use.”
The webinar will be held Wednesday, 9/26 at 10:00 am ET. It will examine strategies for reaching the uninsured through mobile channels, the critical role agents and brokers will play in member acquisition, and explain how a multi-channel strategy can lead to higher enrollments, better member/patient self-service, and increased customer retention. Attendees can register for the webinar here.
