PHILADELPHIA, July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Perspecta, formerly known as VIIAD Systems, a leading healthcare technology company, announced that it has launched a new Software as a Service, Provider Directory Now (PDN), to help organizations challenged with publishing accurate and timely online provider directories the ability to do so quickly and more cost-effectively.
The problem of how painful it is to produce automated provider directories was referenced in Gartner's March 2018, Top Pain Points and Solutions for U.S. Healthcare Payer CIOs in Provider Network Management, report. Gartner analyst Bryan Cole addresses the provider directory problem as a part of the larger provider network management problem. He writes, "Payer CIOs who do not look more broadly about their PNM (provider network management) IT solutions will continue to suffer in the short term from high rework costs and the risk of compliance penalties… In the long term, their organizations will lose the provider relationships essential to care coordination and medical cost containment as the payer industry shifts toward VBC (value-based care)."
