The AuthentiCare® IVR system has been an intricate part of collecting claim information real-time and providing assistance with accurate reporting. Current changes in technology have allowed homes to move away from landline service and gravitate to complete wireless home phone systems. In anticipation of this, AuthentiCare® has created a mobile application for workers to use when landline access is not available. This application closely mimics the capabilities of the IVR application and has the ability to base its validation process on the location of the worker using GPS technology. You can download the new AuthentiCare® Mobile Application now!
