The KONZA payer platform is NCQA certified and the KONZA team supports the health plan in any audit required to authenticate standard and non-standard data sources.
KONZA’s patient approach has always been to provide all medical information to the patient... even before HHS and ONC required this. KONZA’s engagement platform sends any new medical information to a patient’s personal health record. The patient receives an email or text message that new data has arrived from any location that the patient may have received care that is a part of the KONZA National Network. Patients can choose how they store and display this data.
No longer do patients have to remember many patient portal user names and passwords from each of their health care providers. Now is it all in one place and... yes it does include notes and reports. Patients can also keep track and graph their health information and send it securely to their doctors, and patients have access to world class medical education and a secure place to store important medical documents.
If this sounds too good to be true...
it really is and you can use the KONZA engagement platform now as a patient, call 800.435.2104. Patients receive the KONZA engagement platform at little or no cost depending upon patient authentication requirements in each state.
