A business rules engine is a targeted fix that has helped state healthcare exchanges achieve dramatic results.
Don’t get me wrong, I think humans are great. I’m one too, and recognize that we have the capacity to do awesome things. That said, we do have limits to our processing capacity that software doesn’t. I mention this because this human limitation directly translates to manual coding. This is no knock on humans; it’s just not a fair contest. Comparing automated decision processes to manual ones is like matching our newly garlanded Triple Crown winner against a snail in a race. The result is a foregone conclusion.
That’s why it’s so rewarding to see the fantastic results customers get when deploying our automated Business Rules Engine (BRE) in a host of complex decision making scenarios. Like the horse and the snail, the results are dramatic: rules in a fraction of a second vs. weeks or months when hard coding manually. Plus, BREs offer both accuracy and speed, something missing from the manual equivalent.
And its not just New Mexico and Pennsylvania. A total of 26 states have chosen Corticon for a variety of complex uses ranging from HIX to pensions and more.
As a new era dawns for state healthcare exchanges, here’s hoping more decision makers invest on a winning horse.
