Point of Care Assist™

Delivering enhanced benefit information at the point of care.

At UnitedHealthcare, we’re doing all we can to simplify the health care system for everyone.

Point of Care Assist™, adds real-time patient information —including clinical, pharmacy, labs, prior authorization, eligibility and cost transparency — to your existing electronic medical records (EMRs) to make it easier for you to understand what patients need at the point of care.

Point of Care Assist integrates patients’ UnitedHealthcare medical records with EMRs to provide real-time insights on care needs, aligned to their specific member benefits and costs, helping providers.
