Brocacef has realized significant bottom-line results with Corticon, reducing costs while increasing the company’s profitability and customer satisfaction. Brocacef managed to completely automate the process for invoicing health insurers and create a flexible environment for business analysts to apply changes quickly, easily and without errors.
“Thanks to Corticon, we’re completely in control of the business,” said Otto, as Corticon enables non-IT experts to document and manage business logic outside the application code. “The Corticon rules engine powers our entire process, like the backend logic of an application. We only had to create the specific use cases to allow our business people to easily model the rules and change parameters on a day-to-day basis with maximum flexibility.”
The flexibility also extended to the IT team. As Otto explained, “When you're hard-coding decisions, you’re creating a hard-to-manage system and a bottleneck for yourself as a developer. With Corticon we can retrieve the logic and make the code more versatile, uniform and easy for us to maintain.”
In this way, Brocacef dramatically shortened the time necessary for business analysts to implement changes agreed with the insurers: “With our previous process it took us 1.5 weeks to implement changes in automated decisions. With Corticon we can do it in 1.5 hours,” said Otto. “Errors in the application of the agreements have been reduced to a minimum. Miscalculations and incorrectly applied agreements led to an enormous amount of extra work and so significantly higher costs. Not to mention the annoyance this causes the customers and the reduced confidence this entails.”
