The Houston Business Journal recognized HCCMIS in December 2009 for its bold strides into Social Media. In that article , Muhammad Yasin, HCCMIS Claims and Client Relations Manager states, "We want to enhance the healthcare experience related to insurance with the deeply personal and timely communication style people have become accustomed to through social media.”
In recent months, HCCMIS has incorporated the use of social technology into its daily operations. Based on ideas discovered while instant messaging with customers and agents, HCCMIS created a social persona on their website, HCCMedical.com , in the form of an Online Travel Concierge named Eva, who provides services to customers as they prepare for an international journey.
