Array Health and Microsoft Collaborate to Power Private Health Insurance Exchanges

Seattle, Wash. (PRWEB) September 24, 2013

Array Health, a leading provider of private insurance exchange technology, today announced its alliance with Microsoft Corp. to power Array Health’s private exchange solution. Array Health’s Spectrum cloud-based software takes advantage of a suite of Microsoft products to give health insurers such as Highmark Health Services the security features, scalability and high level of performance they need to run a successful private exchange.

“Our technology relationship with Microsoft gives us a competitive edge when attracting major insurers,” said Daniel Wolf, CTO of Array Health. “We chose to build our software on top of a Microsoft technology platform to give our customers a security-enhanced, scalable and extensible architecture that would meet their private exchange needs today and in the future.”

Array Health’s Spectrum solution takes advantage of Microsoft Internet Information Services, the .NET Framework, SQL Server 2012, and Windows Server 2008. As a trusted enterprise software provider, Microsoft provides a flexible, high-availability technology platform that enables Array Health to adapt quickly to changing market demands and develop a leading-edge consumer marketplace.

“Array Health is a pioneer and innovator in the private exchange marketplace,” said Hector Rodriguez, Director of the Health and Life Sciences Industry Technology Unit at Microsoft Corp. “The company’s unique combination of a world-class consumer experience and robust back-end solutions takes advantage of many aspects of the Microsoft technology platform to give health insurers an important strategic sales channel in today’s competitive market.”

Taking advantage of Array Health’s Spectrum, Highmark Health Services, one of the largest health insurers in the U.S. and the fourth-largest Blue Cross and Blue Shield-affiliated company, has been able to scale its exchange to help efficiently and securely handle large membership volumes. The solution was able to pass Highmark Health Services’ rigorous performance stress test in preparation for its peak enrollment season.

“When selecting a partner, it was critical that the entire technology stack met the highest standards of security and performance,” said Steven Nelson, senior vice president of strategy, product and marketing at Highmark Health Services. “The Array Health solution satisfied our needs from both perspectives and delivers a great shopping experience for our members, as well as a more secure way to handle the back-end data processes essential for our platform.”
