Abridge and Priority Health Partner to Help Members Stay on Top of Their Health and Deliver Improved Health Outcomes

PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Abridge, the healthcare conversation company whose mission is to encourage understanding and follow-through across every medical conversation, today announced a partnership with Priority Health, a nationally recognized nonprofit health plan. Priority Health now includes Abridge in its list of supplemental benefits for all Individual Medicare Advantage and Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP) members to help them follow through on their care plans.

“We want to make it easier for our members to take action in their personal health journey by providing the necessary tools and resources,” said Scott Norman, vice president of Medicare at Priority Health. “Abridge is a vital component of our programs designed to keep members healthy. Our partnership will support our longstanding commitment to bring our members innovative benefits that will help drive better individual health outcomes.”

As the U.S. emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, the introduction of the Abridge app helps members remember the details of medical care catch-up. Abridge helps family members stay on the same page on any care plans, even if they are unable to attend appointments in person. Now more than ever, technology is a vital link in helping people attend visits independently while keeping family in the loop about the next steps of care.

Abridge creates an interactive transcript of the medical parts of the conversation so members can quickly review the high-level care plan down to the details of diagnoses, medications, treatments, and follow ups. Additionally, Abridge works with trusted partners to define medical terms, helping people better understand their care plans.

“Priority Health’s dedication to bringing innovative, personalized solutions to its members closely aligns with Abridge’s commitment to helping people stay on top of their health and understand the details of their medical conversations,” said Shiv Rao, CEO and co-founder of Abridge. “Abridge offers users peace of mind, and we’re proud to partner with Priority Health to provide our technology to drive better health outcomes.”

This news comes during annual enrollment period for Medicare, taking place now through December 7. To shop plans, visit priorityhealth.com/medicare.
