CDPHP Goes Live with Suite of TriZetto Applications to Enhance Administrative Efficiency and Quality of Care

The TriZetto Group, Inc. today announced that CDPHP ® , a not-for-profit, physician-guided health insurer, went live in July with TriZetto applications that will help New York’s top-rated health plan* continue to reduce costs and improve quality as part of its company-wide “health value strategy.”

The enterprise, network management and Web-based applications, which augment CDPHP’s use of TriZetto’s core administrative system, enhance the efficiency with which CDPHP administers claims, provider contracts and transactions and the exchange of information between the payer organization and its valued constituents.

“TriZetto’s highly integrated information systems permit access to a considerable amount of additional data, enabling us to further enhance population management, conduct predictive modeling and help members by anticipating health issues,” said Barbara Downs, senior vice president and chief operating officer, CDPHP. “TriZetto’s applications provide the flexibility and scalability to help further improve our administrative efficiency, and more importantly, the quality of care for our members.”

“The combination of TriZetto systems will make it even easier for CDPHP providers, employer groups and members to tap into the health plan’s benefit system to obtain the information they seek in the right format,” said Tony Bellomo, president of TriZetto. “TriZetto’s integrated set of solutions powers Integrated Healthcare Management, the systematic application of processes, shared information and aligned incentives to optimize the coordination of benefits and care for the healthcare consumer. With our core administration, network management and constituent Web applications in place, CDPHP is solidifying its market leadership by moving aggressively toward its health value strategy.”

The simultaneous go-live of multiple applications capped another successful implementation by TriZetto characterized by open, ongoing communication with the payer customer throughout the process.

“Our implementation experience with the TriZetto team was a true partnership,” Downs added. “Their innovation and commitment to excellence created the trust that was essential to the success of the effort. The CDPHP and TriZetto implementation project can serve as a model for the future.”
