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.
