The TriZetto Group, a provider of healthcare IT services, has won a five-year contract from Neighborhood Health Plan to equip the company with a hosted model of its Clinical CareAdvance care management system and provide application hosting services for the insurer’s continued use of its QNXT enterprise administration system.
Neighborhood Health Plan (NHP) chose TriZetto’s Clinical CareAdvance system to manage its members’ acute and chronic illnesses and to help improve health status across its member population. The care management system applies clinical algorithms to create targeted interventions that can help improve members’ health.
According to TriZetto, by having TriZetto manage and host the Clinical CareAdvance and QNXT systems, NHP can focus on more strategic IT tasks while TriZetto assumes day-to-day technology management. TriZetto’s hosting services include operation and support of third-party software, batch and EDI transaction management and hardware/infrastructure management to TriZetto’s data centers.
Mike Jenner, senior vice president of business services at TriZetto, said: By combining our healthcare solutions with application hosting services, TriZetto provides customers with a cost- and resource-efficient approach to meeting their business requirements. For NHP and other payers that compete with much larger plans, our application hosting can level the playing field and deliver competitive advantage.
