Foremost American healthcare company innovates across the entire care continuum

Ascendion March 9, 2022

Choosing the right health insurance plan deeply impacts the quality and affordability of care options. Helping members choose the right plans for their health needs and supporting them in making the right care decisions could be a significant competitive differentiator for healthcare payers.


For a leading U.S. health solutions company, relying on third-party providers for enrollment was proving costly – both in terms of profitability and customer experience. In addition, the lack of a unified customer relationship management (CRM) platform affected the ability of customer service representatives (CSR) to assist members. A more modernized approach was needed across the care continuum.


To achieve this digital transformation, expert engineers were needed to bring the future to life with frictionless, even beautiful moments at the intersection of software and human experiences. It was critical to boost CSR effectiveness, reduce the cost of service, and improve the customer experience.


Engineering excellent care

Ascendion engineers partnered with the client to map the member’s journey and identify areas of improvement. We transformed the member experience with a new self-service portal. We created an intuitive, user-friendly member portal with comprehensive self-service capabilities for search health plans and benefits and customer support.


We designed a decision support system for the CSR team. We also built an analytics and machine learning-led unified decision support system for the Customer Service Representatives with a 360-degree view of the customer information to offer personalized support and enable proactive outreaches to members if required.
