NTT DATA Inc., a leading IT services provider, and FlexTech, a leading healthcare information technology consulting company, together announced a strategic partnership that will leverage their ‘Best in Experience’ team of HealthRules Payor and HealthRules CareManager professionals, to deliver a performance-based implementation experience that will allow a more predictable and value-based experience.
The combined market solution leverages the value of two companies that recognized early that HealthEdge possessed the market leading capability to support the emerging needs of the Payer market. The collective years of health plan implementation experience, coupled with an industry-leading team focused on delivery excellence, has enabled the partnership to develop an outcome-based delivery model with service offerings that contain tested tools and accelerators. This joint approach will provide payer organizations a greater degree of quality, cost reduction, and overall transition success.
“Our partnership with FlexTech provides compelling market value by delivering both predictable cost and quantified outcomes. Our business model assures success by combining the two key ingredients necessary for overall project success; an experienced team and proven tools and technology-based accelerators. In addition to having the largest contingent of HealthEdge specialists in the industry, our combined team now offers the most experienced resources available in the market today to support HealthRules Payor and HealthRules CareManager Implementations,” said Michael Ragan, senior vice president of Healthcare & Life Sciences, NTT DATA, Inc. “Together, our team of over 300 professionals have worked on over 90% of all HealthRules Payor implementations, assuring clients the experience and capacity to meet their ongoing support needs.”

This partnership increases the ability of our teams to quickly respond to the needs of the market, and deliver resources and services that exceed the needs and expectations of customers.
