Sesame and NantHealth collaborate to introduce new virtual medical care facilities along with secure payment options for their customers.
Sesame & NantHealth have taken the initiative to educate half of the uninsured U.S. adult population about direct-to-patient and virtual care. That aims to enable the providers to scale their practices at a rapid speed.
NantHealth’s NaviNet is a renowned payer/provider collaboration sector that allows providers to swap vital financial, clinical, and administrative information.
On the contrary, Sesame is a direct-to-patient telemedicine marketplace or organization that helps the user to search and purchase health services. These services involve dermatology, imaging, and doctor visits as claimed by the company.
Together both these platforms plan to design a program that will render the providers with specialized tools. That will also offer direct access to virtual care, including MRI or CT scan like facilities for the patients. As per the companies, this opportunity will bring a downfall in administrative costs and increase practice revenue.
Sesame has been a trustworthy telemedicine marketplace for hundreds of thousands of customers. It has also successfully risen to a fund of over $23 million for scaling the model of direct-pay healthcare. This plan aims to provide affordable quality care for underinsured or uninsured patients.
Even those with huge-deductible health plans are also said to get benefited from this program. Apart from that, it helps providers with clearly prepared transparent prices and receiving payment up-front. They can also list hours that seems convenient enough for everybody and links with patients both in person and virtually.
The CEO and co-founder of Sesame, David Goldhill, says, “Our collaboration, in service of NaviNet providers and their patients, gives providers turnkey solutions to grow their practices and increase revenue by 25% per visit.”
He also adds the reason behind this step is those millions of Americans who lost their employer-provided insurance in the previous year. Both the companies believe this step will accelerate the situation and bring an affordable and profitable solution for both providers and providers.
