HealthCare Administrative Solutions (HCAS), a non-profit organization of Massachusetts-based health plans, has chosen DirectAssure® after an extensive search for a solution to improve healthcare provider directories in the state.
With DirectAssure, providers enter their directory information changes once and share them with multiple plans. The solution works in concert with CAQH ProView®, an online database used by more than 1.4 million providers nationwide to maintain their professional and practice information. DirectAssure asks providers to compare and verify practice location information within health plan records and confirm whether they accept specific insurance plans and if they are accepting new patients.“CAQH offers an existing solution that minimizes the administrative burden of provider data collection and already has unmatched provider engagement in New England,” said Lori Burgiel, Executive Director, HCAS.
Over the coming months, HCAS member health plans and CAQH will educate the local provider community on the solution and the data sharing opportunities it offers.
