BURLINGTON, Mass. -- June 18, 2013

HealthEdge®, provider of the only integrated financial, administrative and
clinical platform for healthcare payors, today announced that its continued
partnership with NTT DATA, Inc., a leading IT services provider, is helping a
growing list of HealthEdge customers, including Independent Health and
Riverside Health, achieve a successful transition to the HealthRules product
suite.

“Riverside Health is seeking to become a leading managed care organization in
the Medicaid marketplace. We selected HealthRules as our operations platform
in order to leverage the HealthRules product suite. We believe it will allow
us to outpace our competition in what is arguably the most dynamic industry in
business today. NTT DATA brought a comprehensive suite of configuration and
claims support services which enabled us to meet an aggressive timeline.
Utilizing local talent, NTT DATA’s support services were scalable to the peaks
and valleys with new health plan implementation – all the while we maintained
the highest levels of customer service,” said David Margolit, vice president
of Operations, Riverside Health, Inc.

NTT DATA Corporation is the sixth largestIT services provider in the world.
Working in conjunction with HealthEdge leadership and delivery teams, NTT
DATA, Inc. has developed HealthRules-specific solutions that leverage shared
service delivery to optimize operational and technology investments, while
supporting successful transitions and continuous improvement.

“As part of the implementation of the HealthRules product suite from
HealthEdge, we explored all possibilities to expedite and enhance our
implementation experience,” stated Judy Feldman, senior vice president and
chief information officer for Independent Health Association (IHA). “We
selected NTT DATA, Inc. based on their comprehensive shared service model, to
support our efforts to centralize organizational correspondence utilizing our
internal ECM applications and HP Exstream application. In keeping with our
laser focus on opportunities to improve administrative efficiencies and
effectiveness, NTT DATA has supplied their industry expertise and highly
skilled resources to manage the HP Exstream effort which allowed IHA to
concentrate on business strategy and overall project deliverables for our
system conversion.”

“For payors to compete in the next-generation healthcare market they will
require both end-to-end transformative technology as well as strong solution
partners that can provide the capacity to meet these market challenges,” said
Ray Desrochers, executive vice president of Sales and Marketing at HealthEdge.
“The collaboration of HealthEdge and NTT DATA provides payors with a dynamic
solution to reduce the risk of implementation as they transform their
businesses to compete in the ever-changing healthcare landscape.”

“The collaborative nature of our relationship with HealthEdge has allowed NTT
DATA to partner with the creator of an industry-leading core claims and
administrative platform, HealthRules, to create innovative solutions that
introduce new levels of transparency, quality, responsiveness and
cost-benefit,” said Mike Ragan, senior vice president, Life Sciences and
Healthcare at NTT DATA, Inc. “Our dedicated and certified HealthRules
Competency Center offers a broad range of shared services that are supported
by deep domain, process, and operational expertise, to accelerate deployment
and deliver quantifiable value.”
