Better Health Insurance Summaries

23 / Feb / 2012    Anand Gaddum

Haven’t we all seen health insurance benefit forms that seems greek to us? Finally, health insurance benefit forms that makes sense. HHS unveiled final regulations detailing the new health insurance summaries that the federal health law requires plans to give to consumers to help them make informed coverage choices.

Branding Internal Applications - the Benefits

23 / Feb / 2012    Peter Denton

Most companies now have several systems they use internally on a daily basis that come from a variety of vendors based on the need. A common example in a large organization would be employees using SAP for HR-based needs, SharePoint for collaboration and document management needs, and Remedy for ticketing systems. Out of the box, these systems look very different and companies tend to leave these applications looking as they came, with slight modifications such as installing their logo to replace

Medical Loss Ratio and ICD-10 conversion

30 / Jan / 2012    Anand Gaddum

Let’s look at how the new Medical Loss Ratio (MLR) that was defined as part of the Health Reform differs from the traditional definition and how it related to the ICD-10 conversion. To help ensure that millions of Americans who rely on private insurance for health care coverage receive value for their premium dollars, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) established minimum "medical loss ratio" (MLR) standards for insurers. The MLR is a basic financial indicator, traditionally referring to the

Designing a Mobile Application

30 / Jan / 2012    Peter Denton

More often than not, clients who I work with do not adequately plan for the amount of design work that goes into producing a good mobile application. It's not that they are trying to cut corners or save money, it's more that they envision the process to be a simple exercise of "porting" their existing application to mobile.

SQL Server 2012 is almost here! What’s new? and Why should you care?

6 / Jan / 2012    Ravi Mallikarjuniah

SQL Server 2012 which was code named “Denali” is releasing on March 7th in an elaborate launch event. The RC0 has been available for the last few months and it looks just fantastic! (RC stands for release candidate, which is Microsoft’s terminology to say it’s ready to go to market). Key focus areas for features in this new incarnation are 3 major drivers of the data market today and the foreseeable future.

Developing software always reminds of trying to clean up the basement in the dark. We crash around, running into each other and into unidentified obstacles, grunting and swearing. Each one of us encounter something and decide to move it; as soon as we set it down someone else finds it and moves it elsewhere. Adding more people to a process like this probably won't help.

Last month, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) dropped its efforts to implement the CLASS Act. The CLASS program is a national, voluntary insurance program that was supposed to be available after October 2012 to help pay for services and supports that help citizens maintain independence in the community.

Developing Rich Internet Applications the Right Way

A guide to ensuring quality and consistency when developing rich applications.

22 / Dec / 2011    Peter Denton

Most of the projects I work on involve developing a new interface on a website or application that appears cutting-edge to users. It's no surprise, as user demands for rich, state-of-the-art interfaces have skyrocketed and users of consumer and enterprise applications no longer want "what works" but rather want what "is possible".
