CoreSource Introduces New Member Health Portal, Powered by WorldDoc, Inc.

02/19/2009

LAKE FOREST, Ill. – CoreSource, a leading national provider of administrative and care management services for self-funded employee benefit plans, announced today that its plan members across the country have access to a new integrated online consumer health portal – the HealthCenter, powered by WorldDoc.

“Our new online HealthCenter will create opportunities for CoreSource to communicate with our plan members through a comprehensive, integrated health management solution,” said Paul Lotharius, President of CoreSource. “The HealthCenter will provide members with tools they need to get and stay healthy, leading to decreased costs for them and their employers.”

For more than 30 years, CoreSource has delivered customized employee benefit administration services to self-funded employers across the U.S. In 2007, CoreSource introduced a suite of total population management products designed to promote prevention and management of chronic conditions. Those programs will be integrated into the WorldDoc portal as an added platform for communicating personal wellness information to each member. Among the tools included in the CoreSource HealthCenter are a health risk assessment, personal health record, online wellness coaching, hospital and treatment cost comparison tools, and optional 24-hour online nurse chat.

“We were attracted to WorldDoc not only for their comprehensive member portal and personal health record, but for their ability to seamlessly integrate with our existing population management programs,” Lotharius said. “Combining our existing care management communications with the WorldDoc consumer platform will create an advanced system to help our plan members reach their health goals while lowering healthcare costs for our employer clients.”

The core component of WorldDoc’s consumer care management systems, WorldDoc 24/7, is an intuitive, interactive personal health management application that empowers users to evaluate symptoms, understand their health issues, assess health risks and take steps to decrease those risks. WorldDoc 24/7 collects, analyzes and integrates a user’s medical, prescription and personal health data to provide a comprehensive care management solution that includes personalized medical goals, care gap identification and communication with targeted, actionable treatment suggestions. 

“We are excited to work with the team at CoreSource to help differentiate them in the marketplace and to further enhance their members’ health at a higher level,” said Rahul Singal, MD, president and CEO of WorldDoc, Inc. “We look forward to helping them to improve the health of their population resulting in reduced costs.”
