HICAPS, Australia’s leading claims and payments solution for healthcare providers, has partnered with digital health company HealthShare.
HealthShare’s 'Find a Provider'directory allows both consumers and GPs to research and find a health provider to meet their individual needs. It is available online - www.healthshare.com.au.
Formed in 1998, HICAPS is part of NAB Health. According to NAB Health Customer Executive, Kate Galvin, “This partnership will better connect healthcare providers with users looking for their services,” Ms Galvin said.
“HealthShare’s existing partnerships with providers and private health funds made them a natural partner for NAB to work with, and we look forward to delivering more integrated solutions together.”
The directory is integrated into two GP clinical software vendors - Best Practice and MedicalDirector - enabling over 90 per cent of Australian GPs to access the directory as part of their regular referral workflow.
It also powers the 'Find a Provider' search functionality for many private health insurers on their own websites.
HealthShare CEO, Rami Weiss, said the company is delighted to partner with HICAPS on this initiative.
“The new partnership reinforces our commitment to users to provide them with comprehensive and relevant information when they are searching for the right health provider for their needs,” said Mr Weiss.
