Wellstar Health System Partners with CLEAR
Monday, April 24th, 2023
Wellstar Health System, one of the largest and most integrated healthcare systems in Georgia, is collaborating with CLEAR, the secure identity company, focused on optimizing Wellstar consumers' digital and physical healthcare experiences. Wellstar will embed secure identity verification Powered by CLEAR technology to provide patients with secure and easy access to their personal health information.
Using the Powered by CLEAR platform will provide a seamless and secure experience by eliminating the need for patients to manually re-enter biographic data with each interaction. Wellstar expects the partnership with CLEAR will save patients time, reduce help desk calls and operational costs, improve security, lower fraud risk, and drive consumer adoption and engagement across the health system's digital ecosystem.
"This exclusive partnership will open the door to new innovations that make accessing care easier and experiences curated in the moments people need them most," said Hank Capps, M.D., FAAFP, Wellstar's Executive Vice President and Chief Information and Digital Officer. "As we continue to build future care models that blur digital to brick and mortar experiences, we need advanced capabilities and constant innovation. We are excited to roll-up our sleeves with CLEAR and design that future together."
"CLEAR's partnership with Wellstar marks another important step as we work to replace the clipboard and improve the patient experience," said Caryn Seidman-Becker, CEO of CLEAR. "We're excited to power safer, easier experiences - physically and digitally - for Wellstar patients across their healthcare journey."
Catalyst by Wellstar, a first-of-its-kind innovation company and venture firm, will support the partnership with CLEAR to accelerate innovation.
