Modernized Cloud engineering revives critical healthcare services

Ascendion February 3, 2022

The best way to improve an individual’s healthcare journey, as well as a health providers’ business health, is to connect and integrate the people, technology, and health insurance benefit design through a user-friendly engagement platform.


A prominent health and wellness service provider was facing impending challenges with their aging healthcare infrastructure equipment, resulting in low efficiency and high operational overheads. They faced stagnant scalability, a looming expiration on their data center lease, and increased customer demand. 


Using the data center lease expiration as an opportunity to move to a co-location facility, they wanted to migrate part of their application to the Cloud and deconstruct the monolith applications to microservice architecture. Plus, the client wanted to enhance member experience by leveraging optimum content delivery network (CDN) solutions.


Transforming aging data center to be in tip-top shape

Ascendion engineers applied a transformation-led, application-centric infrastructure approach with best-in-class service delivery and agile methodologies, using a co-engineering approach.

Ascendion AVA, our intelligent digital engineering platform, was used for a cyclomatic complexity analysis of the applications. We performed advanced analytics through Cloud analytics with an overarching security framework. The team collected comprehensive data for all applications and assets. We closely worked with the application owners to resolve queries and, in turn, help them decommission unwanted systems.

Breathing new life into healthcare experiences for all

Ascendion’s three-year engineering transformation roadmap helped the health provider with scalability, improved overarching security frameworks, and reduced operational expenditures. The solution enabled better analytics and observability while improving the customer experience. Additional benefits:

  • $3 million reduced total cost of ownership
  • 90% of the workload moved to Azure and Cloud-native architecture
  • 80% reduced deployment time and scalability
  • 55% faster migration time
  • 30% increase in employee productivity 

Tech Stack: Microsoft Azure Cloud Stack, Azure DevOps, Azure Front Door, Azure Functions, Azure Logic Apps, Azure Service Bus, Azure Security Center/Azure Sentinel, Azure SQL/Backup, .Net, Synapse Analytics
