Health Partners Plans Chooses the NaviNet Open Platform to Undertake Strategic Initiatives

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Feb 27, 2015) -  NaviNet, Inc., America's leading healthcare collaboration network, serving more than 40 health plans and 420,000 clinical and administrative users in the United States, today announced that Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based Health Partners Plans (HPP) has chosen NaviNet Open as its next-generation payer-provider platform. The platform will support patient-centered clinical workflows and value-based reimbursement models.

Health Partners Plans is one of the few hospital-owned health maintenance organizations (HMOs) in the United States. HPP is widely known for its innovative preventative health strategies and is rated the number-one Medicaid plan in Pennsylvania by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). The organization chose to partner with NaviNet because NaviNet Open -- including the multi-payer portal and NaviNet's Value-Based Network applications -- aligns with a key initiative to collaborate even more closely with its provider network, to strengthen communications, and to empower the delivery of highest-quality care.

"Health Partners Plans is committed to working closely with our extensive network of nearly 6,500 providers to offer the best possible health outcomes for our members," said William S. George, President and Chief Executive Officer, Health Partners Plans. "Our new relationship with NaviNet underscores our longstanding commitment to improving quality for the members we serve and the providers who care for their healthcare needs."

"We are proud to welcome Health Partners Plans to the NaviNet community," stated Frank Ingari, Chief Executive Officer, NaviNet, Inc. "They have a long-standing commitment to improving the health of their members and the communities they serve. We look forward to delivering innovative value-based network technologies that support and extend these efforts as we navigate the future of healthcare together."

The NaviNet Open layered architecture provides the extensibility, flexibility, and scalability necessary to accommodate change and promote growth as health plans launch new businesses and products. In addition to the base platform, NaviNet Open offers core applications, Value-Based Network applications, configuration and administrative tools, and open APIs for easy connectivity, integration, and application development. These capabilities, which make NaviNet Open the most advanced network technology platform in healthcare today, were designed based on the best practices of the NaviNet multi-payer portal.
