Pegasystems and Milliman Combine Healthcare Offerings

Business process management provider Pegasystems and healthcare consulting company Milliman Care Guidelines have announced a strategic alliance to combine their offerings for healthcare organizations.

Pegasystems' Care Management Framework will be integrated with Milliman's CareWebQI software that provides interactive access to evidence-based clinical content of Milliman Care Guidelines. It said the combined product will enable healthcare organizations to improve the efficiency and quality of patient services through a single integrated portal.

Elizabeth Hart, senior director of Pegasystems' healthcare division, said: "Care management is being recognized as a critical capability to improve member health while simultaneously reducing the cost of service. By joining forces with Milliman, we are able to meet the totality of our customers' needs. Adding robust integration to clinical content through Pegasystems' BPM engine is an important step in fully automating processes while ensuring the right care is given."
