Cognizant has announced that it is working with HTH Worldwide, a global technology-based health services and information company, to enable its members to maximise the use of mobile technology for managing healthcare needs more effectively while travelling abroad.
As part of the engagement, Cognizant is helping HTH transform its mobile footprint through an enterprise mobile platform to support the company’s growing business and further strengthen its position in mobile medical assistance services.
HTH members use their smart phones today to consult destination-specific global health and safety information, locate doctors, emergency services, hospitals and pharmacies, schedule appointments, and translate medication names and medical terms and phrases.
This enterprise solution will also allow HTH Worldwide to roll out new products to meet their business and user demands.
“Innovation is the cornerstone of our mission to help travellers deal with medical questions quickly, efficiently, and safely,” said Angelo Masciantonio, Chief Executive Officer, HTH Worldwide. “As mobile devices become the gateway to understanding, finding, and accessing care, the convenience and reliability of an optimised mobile experience are what our members need to manage existing and unanticipated health conditions in faraway places where finding a doctor and explaining symptoms cannot be left to chance. In Cognizant, we have found a partner that understands our enterprise mobile strategy and has the capabilities to help us enable our members to make the most of their travel, no matter where they are.”
“We are pleased to be working with HTH Worldwide,” said Krish Venkat, President, Healthcare and Life Sciences practice, Cognizant. “We look forward to leveraging our deep expertise in SMAC (social, mobile, analytics and cloud) technologies to help HTH Worldwide continue to transform how it delivers health services to its members across the globe and engages with them. With smartphones and tablets empowering users and fast transforming the delivery of care, assuring a cutting-edge mobile experience for world travelers will help HTH Worldwide unlock greater competitive advantage and raise the bar of customer engagement.”
