Chennai: Cognizant today announced that it has been selected by CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield (CareFirst), a leading not-for-profit health care company, to support the insurer’s efforts to leverage mobile technology for its 3.3 million members.
Under this engagement, Cognizant is working with CareFirst to establish a direct connection with its members, to provide them quick, secure and convenient ways to manage their health coverage, access information about physicians and claims, and obtain details about benefits anytime, anywhere using smartphones and tablets.
Cognizant will leverage its Mobility Testing Lab in Phoenix, AZ, for on-demand, cloud-based testing of the mobile applications across multiple devices and carriers, helping CareFirst save time and infrastructure maintenance costs.
“Our move into the mobile space is driven by the growing significance of mobility in the overall connected health effort,” said Harry D Fox, Senior VP for Technical & Operational Support Services at CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield. “The ubiquity of smartphones and tablet devices, while rapidly changing customer expectations and operational needs, presents a powerful direct link for us to connect with our members and for our members to better manage their health care.”
“We are pleased to be working with CareFirst,” said Krish Venkat, Executive VP of Cognizant’s Healthcare & Life Sciences practice. “With our deep expertise in SMAC (social, mobile, analytics and cloud) technology architectures, we look forward to conceptualizing, architecting, and implementing next-generation mobile capabilities for CareFirst to help transform the way the company engages with its members.”
This engagement further expands Cognizant’s relationship with CareFirst, through which Cognizant is delivering business consulting, systems integration, and application development solutions to support CareFirst’s strategic initiatives, including mandates around regulatory compliance.
