DALLAS & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Healthcare technology and consulting company Compass Professional Health Services today announced it has formed a strategic partnership with DocASAP, a leading provider of online appointment scheduling and patient engagement solutions. As a result of this relationship, Compass will integrate DocASAP’s online appointment scheduling solution into its health navigation platform, making it even easier for Compass members to schedule the care they need, when they need it.

Partnering with DocASAP is one more way we’re making it easier for employees to navigate the healthcare system.”
Through this partnership, DocASAP and Compass will be able to make it easier for Compass members to make appointments with highly-rated primary care physicians and specialists by:
- Connecting employees with the right doctors via accurate patient-provider matching through the online scheduling process that is based on scheduling protocols that are unique to the doctor’s clinical and operational workflows

“Our company’s mission is to make it easier for people to schedule medical appointments by improving patient access and engagement in order to get the care they need,” said Jordan Pisarcik, Vice President of Business Development for DocASAP. “We are excited to partner with Compass and bring our intelligent patient-provider matching solution to improve access for more than 2,000 employer clients and 2 million members across the country.”
Consumers often face several healthcare navigation challenges, including:
