By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Computer Weekly News -- NaviNet, America's largest healthcare network community, announced that long-time partner QualCare, Inc., one of the leading managed care organizations in New Jersey, has agreed to be a Beta Program Customer for NaviNet Open. Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, QualCare enjoys the reputation of being at the forefront of the changing landscape of healthcare.
With more than 700 employees throughout the Northeast, QualCare serves over 100 acute, specialty, and rehabilitation hospitals, as well as 29,000 physicians and other ancillary providers at 33,000 locations across New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York. Given that QualCare is provider-owned, the company is closer to providers than most traditional payers. Through this hybrid model, QualCare's status as a trusted hospital advisor, and with healthcare reform pushing payers and providers closer together, QualCare is able to more easily introduce innovation such as NaviNet Open into the market.
NaviNet Open is a SaaS-based enterprise-class software product line designed to serve payer customers and provider users. It is a tunable, configurable network that empowers health plans and delivery systems to pursue any of the many reform strategies that depend on robust, flexible, and managed communications between all the people and systems who are, in fact, the healthcare community. It consists of a series of layers: a platform, a set of network services, a suite of applications that actually deliver the business and clinical value, and a set of tools that customers can use to configure and customize the system.
"QualCare is proud to be part of this exciting program with such an innovation-driven partner," said Karthik Ganesh, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at QualCare, Inc. "We look forward to growing this relationship and further discussing our provider sponsorship and commitment to optimizing provider engagement."
"By choosing to become a NaviNet Open Beta Program Customer, QualCare is demonstrating its commitment to innovation, its provider network, and member community," said Chuck Digate, Senior Vice President, Sales and Business Development, NaviNet, Inc. "Through this partnership, we will be able to work closely with QualCare to deliver the transformative power of NaviNet Open to its physician office network so that they can leverage the value-added power of this new collaborative solution. We are proud that it joins another longtime NaviNet partner, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska, in the NaviNet Open Beta Program."
