(NYSE: ACS) announced today that it has been awarded a contract to provide business process outsourcing (BPO), information technology outsourcing (ITO), and customer care services for CAQH, the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare.

CAQH is a nonprofit alliance of health plans and trade associations collaborating on initiatives that simplify healthcare administration for health plans and providers, resulting in a better care experience for patients and caregivers.
