Now, through its contract with Pointshare, NIHN affiliates will be electronically linked to a secure network to conduct daily healthcare transactions and communications online.
Under terms of the agreement, NIHN members will receive Pointshare's VeriPoint(SM) service, a multi-payor eligibility verification and benefits service providing doctors and administrators on-screen access to insurance benefits information.
Pointshare will create two Web sites for NIHN, an intranet site providing network affiliates secure access to online services, and one on the World Wide Web where the public can access information.
Kilgallon believes that Pointshare's partnership with the NIHN will have lasting impact on the northern Idaho healthcare community.
Pointshare is excited to partner with NIHN to provide its membership with online healthcare services that streamline the process of exchanging critical healthcare information," said Kilgallon.
