Highmark’s New iPhone App

phoneHighmark health insurance and A.D.A.M. have come out with a new iPhone application called Health@Hand.  A.D.A.M. provides health information and innovative solutions for benefits technology in the health industry.  They partnered with Highmark to launch this application which will be available to all members of Highmark through the online iTunes store.  Health plan members can now get a wealth of information right from their iPhones including articles, information on first aid, discounts on services, and local provider and facility information.

The Pennsylvania-based health insurance company’s Health@Hand was based off of their member’s specific plan and provider information.  It is possible that other Pennsylvania-based health insurers like UPMC health insurance could come out with similar plans through A.D.A.M. in the future.  Current Highmark plan members can use the GPS in their phone to locate specific doctors, specialties and facilities near them.  They can even get a map of the location and connect directly to the office via their phone.  Another unique option members have is the availability of information by simply touching a specific body part.  Members can even change the gender or age for specific information.  The product can also be downloaded by non-Highmark members through A.D.A.M. and iTunes.
