Monitoring healthcare costs has become a necessity for employers. There can be huge price differences in the cost of medications, diagnostic tests, and surgery. Compass helps employees shop and compare medical services before receiving care.
Online PR News – 25-September-2012 – Dallas, TX – With the rising costs of employer sponsored health insurance, many enterprises are seeking ways to help employees proactively manage their healthcare costs. A new customer portal from Compass Professional Health Services offers information and easy to use tools to help employers monitor healthcare savings. Compass Professional Health Services also revamped their marketing website and blog to focus on timely industry topics. The customer portal and website were developed and designed by Insite Interactive, a Dallas web design, development and digital marketing solutions firm.
Retained by employers, Compass Professional Health Services provides a wide range of personal health care advice to employees including help to understand health insurance benefits, assistance with finding the right doctor and unbiased recommendations, as well as personalized resources to compare costs prior to service and help resolving billing problems.
"The rising costs of healthcare are a major issue for many employers who provide insurance to their employees. From Day 1, the focus of Compass Professional Health Services has been to help employers and employees lower their healthcare costs while maintaining or improving the quality of service," said Dr. Eric Bricker, Chief Medical Officer of Compass Professional Health Services.
"We retained Insite Interactive given their reputation for creating online solutions that leverage advanced technology and sophisticated back-end programming to create business solutions that facilitate user friendly experiences," said Dr. Eric Bricker, Chief Medical Officer of Compass Professional Health Services.
Lower healthcare costs for employers
Since 2001, employer-sponsored health coverage for family premiums have increased by 113%, placing increasing burden on employers and workers according to the Employer Health Benefits 2011 Annual Survey issued by the Kaiser Family Foundation and Health Research and Educational Trust issued in September 2011.
Developers at Insite Interactive created a robust portal that provides information including:
• Secure access and the ability to print charts and reports that show utilization, aggregated information about types of services performed, healthcare costs savings and more.
• Communication support: Tools for ongoing communications of Compass’ services. Also includes a report of all past communications (i.e. email campaigns, posters, etc.) sent within a company.
• Schedule a client meeting: Form to schedule a meeting for Compass to present to your company.
• Submit an on-site demo request for Compass to show employees how to use the system.
