NantHealth buys insurer-provider communication firm

Share this:


Modern Healthcare reports that information-technology company NantHealth, which seeks  to change cancer care, has bought NaviNet, a communication platform between insurers and providers.

The magazine reported: “Boston-based NaviNet began as a network that allowed doctors’ offices to get information directly from insurers about patients’ copays, deductibles and plan limits. But increasingly, it has waded into population health, allowing the insurers to prompt providers about whether, for instance, a patient is due for a mammogram.”

“NantHealth and parent company NantWorks similarly see the NaviNet platform as a tool to increase communication between doctors and insurers at the point of care—not just to verify insurance coverage but, for example, to connect patients with clinical trials based on their cancer’s molecular profile.”
