about

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed life as we know it. Health insurance providers across the U.S. face significant challenges to improve stakeholder engagements across the continuum of care and pivot to more member-focused offerings. Yet legacy systems, data silos and error-prone manual processes continue to create friction, prevent proactive customer service and impede delivery of personalized care.

Learn how Gateway Health is using connected technology to overcome these challenges quickly – through a combination of core admin ecosystem transformation, business-process-as-a-service and a new member experience solution. A modern ecosystem provides proactive customer service and personalized care, while keeping member health and provider relations at the center of all operations. This enables the Gateway Health vision of “caring for the whole person in all communities where the need is greatest.”

Attendees will learn:

  • How BPaaS enables Medicaid and Medicare plans to realize substantial cost savings quickly and improves both health and financial outcomes
  • How connected technology is proven to increase customer engagement and provider satisfaction
  • How automation and predictive analytics surface actionable insights which enable competitive differentiation and growth
  • How an ecosystem can scale to meet membership growth across multiple lines of business, including government programs
