Brocacef sought a more automated approach to reimbursements and believed a BRMS was the best way to manage this new complexity moving forward. The company conducted a thorough evaluation of the market, focusing primarily on cost, functionality and the user experience. The new BRMS needed to scale with the complexity of the Dutch healthcare market, and Brocacef wanted to work with an organization that offered local Help Desk and implementation support.
When compared with the other solutions they evaluated, Brocacef was most impressed with the Progress proof of concept (POC) and selected Progress Corticon. “The ease with which business analysts were able to create decision rules was unrivalled,” said Anbeek. “Progress Corticon was able to integrate all rules without requiring any programming. Our IT specialists also found Corticon to be the easiest solution to work with.”
According to Anbeek, the rule verification system in Corticon surpassed expectations. “We deliberately inserted two logical rule errors into the POC to test the vying software vendors,” he said. “Progress Corticon was the only BRMS system able to find the errors. In fact, it found a third error, as there was another, undeliberate error in the specification.”
Finally, Progress Corticon delivered optimal performance and the environment was extremely stable and scalable. “The system was up and running in the shortest possible time thanks to automatic detection of the errors between the rules and an automated solution finder for resolving these inconsistencies,” said Anbeek.
Progress Corticon delivers high-quality, high-fidelity, high-performance automated business decisions. With Corticon organizations can make better faster decisions. Its patented “no coding” rules engine is used by many of the world’s largest financial services, insurance, healthcare, and ecommerce companies as well as federal and state government organizations to automate their most sophisticated decision processes, reducing development and change cycles by 90%.
