PlanSource Releases iOS Mobile App for Health Care Services
Within the app, consumers can access relevant details about each elected plan, share their ID cards and store relevant health care contacts.Cloud-based health exchange and benefits engagement platform developer PlanSource announced the availability of a mobile app that allows employees of organizations who use the PlanSource Platform access to their benefits in one location through an Apple iOS mobile device. The app, which is available for free download through the Apple App Store, allows employers to use the PlanSource Platform for benefits shopping, enrollment, billing and ongoing administration. Within the app, consumers can access relevant details about each elected plan, share their ID cards and store relevant health care contacts. "Consumers want personalized experiences and engagements. That's another way that we are transforming health care," Jamie Walker, vice president of product and consumer engagement at PlanSource, told eWeek. "Gone are the days where people tolerate being a nameless faceless cog—they want a personal experience that is designed for them. If that means they want to engage on a mobile phone, then we best have a mobile engagement to serve them. If they want a desktop, phone or et cetera, we should have the same for them."
Additionally, the app gives employers another way to communicate with employees about benefits, events and other important information through push notifications.
