Health insurer VitalityHealth has partnered with online doctor review and booking platform Doctify.
Under the deal, the VitalityHealth members will be able to search for doctors by speciality, rating and location and book appointments online, as well as provide public ratings and reviews.
The new service is currently being rolled out to members via VitalityHealth’s musculoskeletal team and will fully launch with direct member access to clinicians later this year.
VitalityHealth clinical operations director Dr Ali Hasan said: ‘We’re delighted to be the first health insurer to partner with Doctify. Doctify are great partners for us. Founded by two doctors, they impressed us by how close their vision in this space was to ours – technology to empower patients to help them find the right care for them, first time, quickly, and reassuringly.
Suman Saha, medical director & co-founder of Doctify added: ‘We are proud to have partnered with VitalityHealth. The launch of ‘Vitality Specialist Finder powered by Doctify’ will, for the first time, give members access to key information when selecting the right specialist for themselves. In what can be an anxious time, this will provide their members with the very best healthcare experience. We believe that this is just the first step of a partnership to empower patients and create a seamless patient journey.’
