NantHealth Announces Three-Year Contract Extension with Long-Time Client Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska

Major commercial insurer renews contract of NaviNet Open and adds NantHealth’s Document Exchange solution to their rolodex

CULVER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 1, 2017-- NantHealth, Inc.(NASDAQ-GS: NH), a next-generation, evidence-based, personalized healthcare company, announced today that Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska (BCBSNE),a NantHealth client since 2010, and the largest commercial insurer in the state of Nebraska, has signed a three-year contract extension for NaviNet Open.

Along with extending their contract, BCBSNE adds NantHealth’s NaviNet Open Document Exchange solution to its existing NantHealth solution line which currently includes NaviNet Open application subscriptions such as Eligibility & Benefits, Claim Status, and Single Sign-On (SSO) enablement.

“As adoption of value-based care programs continues to grow among payers and providers, there is a critical need to establish more collaborative partnerships,” said Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, founder and CEO of NantHealth. “As a result, we must find ways to enrich the collaboration between payers and providers. This is where technology will step up to play a big part in that role. We’re looking forward to our continued partnership with BCBSNE and are excited to onboard them with the NaviNet Open Document Exchange solution.”

BCBSNE was an original Beta partner for the NaviNet Open platform, and as part of the renewal, the company has become the latest NantHealth payer client to purchase the NaviNet Open Document Exchange solution, with the plan to use it to facilitate e-delivery of fee schedules.

NaviNet Open Document Exchange enables a HIPAA-safe exchange of clinical information among multiple medical management, informatics, and care delivery teams with the goal of empowering health plans to better communicate and engage with their provider networks in real-time. The flexible solution allows providers to easily access, review, modify, and return documents in pursuit of population health and fee-for-value program initiatives. By meshing clinical intelligence with administrative workflows, NaviNet Open Document Exchange enables effective payer-provider collaboration to improve patient outcomes and boost efficiency.
