tryblueThe new year is a time to plan what things you’d like to do better and improve upon. And given the various demands and changes in the healthcare industry, organization seems to be a large need for businesses. With growing complexity from PPACA, added reporting and communication requirements, and the emergence of more healthcare vendors and programs, organization is going to be key in successfully managing employee benefits in 2016 and beyond.

A web portal can do a great deal to help employers and healthcare entities address these needs. So in the spirit of new year, we’ve listed the top ways a web portal can help companies get organized for their employee benefits and business operations:

 

1.      Consolidating Benefits Data

Managing and tracking employee benefits requires one to manage and track numerous types of employee benefits data, all of which are typically located in different systems. HPS consolidates this data for you so that it is all located within a single web portal. This not only makes data access and reporting easier, but it also enables companies to keep their data if they change to different systems later on.

2.     Organizing Vendors

As employee benefits management becomes more complex, we’re finding the emergence of many new healthcare vendors in the industry. To ease your vendor management and coordination efforts, HPS organizes these vendors into your portal as well, enabling a single point of access to your vendor programs and information. This enables you to present your vendors’ solutions in a single, branded portal that is cohesive and representative of your company’s brand.

3.    Communicating with Key Stakeholders

Besides communicating benefits information to employees, communication with vendors, brokers, and physicians is also key to a well-organized benefit program. By tying all key parties into your portal, they can access their relevant information and communicate with you through secure email, live chat, document sharing, and other means. This enables your company to communicate with your stakeholders in an efficient, organized fashion.

 

These are just a few ways that HPS can help your business, but if you’re trying to get your benefits program organized, there’s no better time than the new year. We hope you’ll use an HPS web portal to become better organized this year and the years to come.
