Blue Cross of Idaho and HealthLink Dimensions partnership ensures accuracy of provider data
ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–HealthLink Dimensions is pleased to announce that Blue Cross of Idaho, an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association in Meridian, Idaho, has engaged HealthLink Dimensions to maintain the accuracy of its provider directories. HealthLink Dimensions works collaboratively with Blue Cross of Idaho and providers in Idaho and surrounding communities to validate that information in provider directories remains current for their patients and members and complies with all rules and regulations national and federal.
Up to 30% of provider directory data changes every year, and maintaining it requires frequent communication between providers and health insurers. HealthLink Dimensions brings together these changes from many different sources to reduce the burden on providers and health plans. The use of big data, combined with easy-to-use online self-service portals and a professional call center, enables fast and accurate data collection. This powerful combination makes up-to-date provider directories a reality and helps members avoid surprises when a provider has left a clinic to practice elsewhere.
Blue Cross of Idaho leaders expressed excitement about choosing HealthLink. Lori Olson, Director of Provider Operations for Blue Cross of Idaho, said, “We are excited to partner with HealthLink Dimensions in our ongoing efforts to maintain accurate information in our provider directory. Our members rely on information from our providers when navigating the healthcare system and we recognize our responsibility to help make their journey as easy as possible. Our partnership with HealthLink Dimensions will allow us to offer a robust provider search function that our members can rely on.
