For healthcare payers, efforts to consolidate, migrate, or implement systems can feel like performing maintenance on your car while driving on the highway. They are faced with performing a myriad of detailed technical challenges while also maintaining the pace and steadiness of day-to-day operations.
AArete provides strategic and technical support to address systems needs arising from:
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Systems upgrades or replacements
- New market expansion
- Insourcing from third-party hosted solutions
- Cloud migrations
- System retirement
- Data cleansing/conversions
No matter the catalyst, the most significant obstacle in any systems transition is often the successful translation of current business rules. Existing business rules and processes that have been refined over years frequently lack the level of documentation necessary to guide a successful transition. The experienced resources that are best suited to resolve these challenges are the same resources responsible for maintaining a high-level of daily operational excellence.
AArete leverages robust payer business knowledge and technology acumen to expand IT capabilities during system implementations, ensuring a successful go-live and ongoing business performance.
