Pega Customer Service for Healthcare

Pega Customer Service for Healthcare helps reduce service costs and improve customer satisfaction through a process-driven approach that resolves customer issues with context, immediacy, and relevance at the initial point-of-contact.

  • Member Services

    Enables healthcare organizations to service consumers of healthcare services, such as health plan members

  • Provider Services

    Enables healthcare organizations to service medical providers, such as physicians, practice staff, and healthcare system personnel

  • Patient Services

    Provides healthcare organizations with capabilities for patient care and engagement

Built on the Pega Platform, Pega Customer Service for Healthcare automates common service requests through intent-driven processing and anticipates customer and operator needs so that customer service representatives (CSRs) have the necessary tools to deliver personalized and responsive service. The application delivers new value from healthcare organizations’ back-end data and processing silos, provides agility to meet changing business requirements, and facilitates compliance with internal and external regulations.

Pega Customer Service for Healthcare is built on the Pega Customer Service and Pega Foundation for Healthcare applications. It includes multiple components; some components are optional. The healthcare data model and healthcare service processes are provided for you in the Pega Customer Service for Healthcare application.

The Pega Customer Service for Healthcare media includes Pega Sales Automation for Healthcare because they are designed to complement each other through the use of common case types and a unified data model. Each application requires a separate license in order to use it. Pega Care Management is built on Pega Customer Service for Healthcare. For more information about the capabilities that are available by implementing the two applications together, see the Pega Care Management product page. If you are using Pega Customer Decision Hub and Pega Care Management, install those applications separately.

All Pega healthcare applications are built on Pega Foundation for Healthcare, which contains the healthcare data model.
