Health Insurance companies using the internet intelligently: "Of all the healthcare organizations betting on the Internet today, perhaps none are as optimistic or committed to information technology as health plans. Chris Levan, chief information officer for BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, puts it succinctly when he states, “Everything we do has a Web component now.”
Internet applications for health plans span a wide spectrum, from sales and service to e-health initiatives. For example, health plans rely on the Internet to power provider connectivity for electronic claims and reimbursement transactions, support member management programs, enable more cost-effective and timely case review and utilization management, and more recently, to deliver personalized disease management programs in an effort to improve consumer health and lower costs."
