Atlantic Information Services, Softheon to Present Complimentary Webinar on How New Technology Helped a Major Insurer Thrive on

Share Article

Representatives from Michigan’s Physicians Health Plan and tech firm Softheon will discuss the challenges health plans face when trying to upgrade legacy systems and the rationale for interoperable health IT adoption in an upcoming complimentary webinar presented by Softheon, and managed and moderated by Atlantic Information Services.

Michigan-based Physicians Health Plan (PHP) attempted to sell health coverage through for the 2014 plan year, but its legacy administration system’s enrollment capabilities weren’t sophisticated enough. Using technology from Softheon, Inc., PHP was able to successfully implement an exchange enrollment and premium billing system — just two months before the start of the 2015 open-enrollment period — and still hit its enrollment targets. Representatives from PHP and Softheon will explain how in “Case Study: How New Technology Helped a Major Insurer Thrive on,” a complimentary May 5 webinar sponsored by Softheon, Inc. and Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS).

Susan Armbruster, an operations consultant filling a lead operations role at PHP, and Eugene Sayan, the founder, chairman and CEO of Softheon, will answer these and other questions:

  • How well does the platform reconcile premiums and advance premium tax subsidies?
  • How easy is the portal to navigate?
  • What capabilities exist for members to sort through benefit summaries and pay premiums online?
  • How complete are the premium receivable reports? (e.g., do they include premium amounts paid and owed by each member?)
  • How should health plans prepare for the nation’s movement toward an interoperable ecosystem?
  • How can multiple channels of distribution be optimized via a single integration point?

A concluding Q&A session will offer participants the chance to pose questions to the speakers.

This webinar also will highlight lessons learned from this year’s implementation with Federally Supported State-Based Marketplace models, and contingencies health plans need to prepare for in the wake of the Supreme Court’s King v. Burwell ruling.
