SAN DIEGO — June 1, 2009
At America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) Institute 2009, Microsoft Corp. will showcase solutions designed for the health plans industry, such as these:
Driving business performance with Microsoft business intelligence and collaboration platforms
Health plans are challenged with costly paper and manual processes when responding to proposals and processing claims. Microsoft will demonstrate how Microsoft Office SharePoint Server and its business intelligence capabilities can help health plans innovate faster, and improve individual and team productivity and quality and affordability of care.
Improving customer experience with Microsoft unified communications
Microsoft’s unified communications suite enables health plans to offer chat-based conversations with their members, conducted virtually or with a live agent, allowing consumers to communicate using their own words. Microsoft will demonstrate technology such as its Consumer Engagement Reference Architecture (CERA) that enables users to better connect with consumers to keep them engaged in their own health, and unified communications and Tellme voice-enabled solutions.
Accelerate innovation and process improvement with the Microsoft Connected Health Framework
Health plan business managers can significantly accelerate innovation by reducing the complexity and cost of analyzing and improving business and care processes. This demonstration features the Microsoft Connected Health Framework, an open, service-oriented architecture that enables health plans to cut costs and business complexities.
Microsoft will also demonstrate how it is helping health plans prepare for the upcoming changes to HIPAA 5010 and ICD-10, highlighting several early adopters’ solutions on the Microsoft platform.
