Pager and Horizon Healthcare Services, Inc. Collaborate to Improve Access to Care

NEW YORK and NEWARK, N.J., Sept. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pager and Horizon Healthcare Services, Inc., New Jersey's oldest and largest health insurer with more than 3.8 million members, today announced a strategic agreement to engage Horizon members and navigate through their healthcare journey, beginning with an initial phase among selected members later in 2017.

This is a milestone collaboration for both Pager and Horizon. For Horizon, it marks a critical investment in its digital strategy and a commitment to a consumer-centric member experience. For Pager, it illustrates the company's ability to provide an effective care navigation and coordination solution for major health plans and health systems. 

Pager provides Horizon members with a mobile-based single entry point into what for many find to be a fragmented and confusing healthcare system. Through an AI-powered and intuitive messaging interface, Pager guides members to the most convenient and cost-effective point of care and immediately and seamlessly connects them with providers through video consults or scheduled appointments with primary care doctors.

"We are extremely proud and excited to be working with Horion," said Co-Founder and President of Pager Gaspard de Dreuzy. "Horizon is on the forefront of payers investing in superior member experience and it is leading the transformation of healthcare in New Jersey through the OMNIA Alliance. Pager will be focused on helping drive this vision, ultimately increasing member satisfaction while lowering the costs of care."

Pager and Horizon share a mission to bring convenient, affordable, quality healthcare options to patients. The collaboration will launch with a selected population in the coming months and will be progressively extended to more members.
