Pegasystems Announces Next-Generation Product Development and Management Solution for Healthcare Market

 


CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – June 21, 2012 – Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leader in Business Process Management (BPM) and software for customer centricity, today announced its next-generation product development and management solution that enables health plans to better meet fast-changing industry and customer needs by reducing time to market for new insurance and wellness products amid growing healthcare complexity.  Pega Product Composer System provides a customer-centric approach to developing and managing innovative healthcare products, supporting product design, approval, operational readiness and implementation. 


The solution, which will be showcased in Booth #913 at AHIP Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 20 – 22, facilitates faster, lower cost product innovation, automates product approvals and simplifies product management through guided assembly of re-usable product components, push-of-a-button product documentation and intuitive graphical displays of product libraries.  With this solution, organizations can quickly create and bring to market new health and wellness products such as value-based benefits and tiered provider network offerings, containing carve-outs and complex eligibility rules, which are being driven by heightened regulatory activity and new market demand.


Built with Pega’s Build for Change® technology, including a next-generation rules engine, the solution brings automation and transparency to product management, making it easier for health plans to version, tailor and continuously improve their products.  Pega Product Composer System also improves customer satisfaction at health plans by offering an inclusive product master repository that provides clear and consistent product information to users across the healthcare enterprise in the language and format that best suits their specific needs.  This makes it easier for organizations to fulfill their product promises and achieve high net promoter scores by delivering product transparency, consistency and accuracy to customer-facing departments such as service, sales, enrollment, authorizations and claims.


Available on-premise or on the cloud, Pega Product Composer System:


 



  • Dramatically improves time to market by streamlining product design and approval processes

 



  • Simplifies product management with re-usable, code-based, componentized product logic displayed in logical formats

 



  • Improves customer satisfaction through its unified product master repository delivering accurate and consistent product information to all users across the enterprise

Pegasystems technology is used by 13 of the 15 largest health payers, more than 65% of the Blues network, several leading provider organizations and many of the largest pharmacy benefit managers.
