Capsci Health to Present at Healthcare Consumerism Forum & Expo in Atlanta

Portland, OR – May 23, 2016 – Capsci Health’s CEO Chris Logan will present at the Institute of Healthcare Consumerism’s 7th Annual Forum & Expo held in Atlanta, Georgia from May 24 -26, 2016. He will demo the Capsci Benefit Engagement Platform at the Wednesday general closing session which is focused on emerging innovations.

Capsci provides mobile apps designed to improve the way health plan members, employees, and dependents use health benefits. Through its innovative app, Capsci assists carriers and employers in reducing medical waste, administrative burden, and absenteeism – primary goals of the healthcare consumerism movement. Capsci apps are supported by a highly secure, cloud-based data platform that manages eligibility, plan, financial, provider, and other data flows. Participants’ mobile experience is tailored to their plan benefits and geographic location.

“Health benefits are increasingly complex,” Logan said, “and employers need to support thousands of employees on several plans with varying networks. Capsci works like a mobile banking app; we provide rich information about the employee’s exact situation to help drive good decisions.”

“High quality, cost-effective healthcare requires a wide-range of skills and expertise which traditionally work within their own silos,,” said Chris Logan, CEO of Capsci Health. “It’s exciting for us to bring these essential perspectives together to enable us to fully appreciate the complexity of each and every aspect of healthcare from the medical to the financial.”
