SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Amino, a leading healthcare guidance platform, today announced that the company has been named an awarded vendor for digital healthcare navigation by the National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA), a leading national government purchasing cooperative. NCPA members can now seamlessly add Guidance, Amino's groundbreaking healthcare search and appointment booking platform, to their health benefits package to help employees and their dependents make smarter decisions about where to get care.
"Navigating healthcare choices can be confusing and stressful for employees, but Amino simplifies the process," said Mike Muscara, NCPA Director of Member and Vendor Support. "We're excited to offer this technology to our members and their employees, and we look forward to seeing the impact Amino has on healthcare quality, cost, and experience over the next few years."
Amino's proprietary recommendation engine uses insights from claims, quality measures, and other healthcare data to identify Smart Matches—high quality, cost-effective providers that are in-network for an employee's health plan. The platform guides users to these top 10-15% of providers based on their individual health needs, which reduces wasteful spending and improves care quality.
Amino Guidance also helps employees find and use relevant employer-sponsored health benefits such as telemedicine, chronic condition management programs, and behavioral health services when they search for a relevant health topic, increasing program utilization and ROI.
"Amino already partners with several public organizations to provide healthcare guidance services, including states, local governments, and schools," said Amino CEO David Vivero. "Through our partnership with NCPA, we look forward to helping even more public sector clients improve their employees' healthcare experience with simple, convenient technology that helps them get the most value out of their health plans and benefits."
