Vālenz Embeds Planwatch into Claim Workflow for Actionable Data

STOW, Ohio (November 1, 2019) – With healthcare spending projected to rise more than 5 percent each year and three-quarters of that spending tied to chronic disease, the need to better manage medical costs has never been greater. To provide self-insured employers, third party administrators, health plans and others with data that drive smarter, more cost-effective decisions, ProServe Health Informatics is pleased to be part of the Vālenz ecosystem.

Through Planwatch, its flagship product, ProServe Health adds deep, integrated financial analytics to fuel Vālenz Claim, a core component of the Valenz ecosystem. By aggregating and mining in-network and out-of-network medical claim data, Planwatch provides intuitive and detailed financial reporting, as well as plan modeling to help direct and systemically lower healthcare spend.

Including Planwatch in the Valenz ecosystem enables more proactive decision-making and a greater opportunity to disrupt the cost curve. “We are leveraging interoperability with partners like ProServe Health to provide actionable business intelligence that helps clients reduce plan costs, not just in the short term but on a more sustained basis,” said Rob Gelb, Chief Revenue Officer at Valenz. “For robust visibility into in-network and out-of-network medical claims savings, Planwatch supports our promise to engage early and often for smarter, better, faster healthcare.”

Georgeann Seuffert, Vice President of Sales at Planwatch, agrees. “We are pleased to take our existing relationship with Valenz to the next level because we share a common goal to provide solutions that substantially influence better health outcomes and reduce total cost of care,” she said. “It is very refreshing to partner with an organization that wants to invest back into their clients.
