Hartford-based health insurer Aetna has selected Orlando-based Kony Solutions' platform to revamp its mobile app.

In addition to providing access to claims status, prescription drug pricing and electronic ID cards, Aetna has added an urgent care finder and information access for non-members as part of the switch to the Kony development platform.

“As part of our commitment to creating a health care system that is more convenient, connected and cost-effective, it’s important for us to provide members with the information and services they need, when and where they need them,” said Dan Brostek, head of Member and Consumer Engagement for Aetna, in a statement. “Kony’s platform has allowed us to provide our members with additional resources that improve access and convenience.”

Kony's development platform allows mobile apps to be deployed across devices and operating systems from a single code base.
