State HIX solutions from Microsoft and its partners offer a clear, simple choice for building a successful insurance exchange and helping achieve compliance with health reform legislation’s insurance exchange provisions. This offering can provide a state with a single solution that integrates the multiple aspects of health insurance delivery, including consumer portals, eligibility determinations, financial services, plan enrollment, enhanced privacy features and program administration.
Microsoft’s technologies, including Windows Azure, Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010 and Microsoft SQL Server, serve as the foundation for the HIX solutions and provide a framework made up of well-known, interoperable technology products. Partner technologies, such as Extend Health’s premium administration, plan comparisons, and enrollment and call center operations solutions, layer additional functionality to the robust platform.
