Health Plan of Michigan Recognized by CIO Magazine as One of the 2008 CIO 100 Award Honorees
Date:6/2/2008

This is the second year in a row that HPM has received this honor.

DETROIT, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- IDG's CIO magazine announced today that Health Plan of Michigan is a recipient of the 2008 CIO 100 award. The 21st annual award program recognizes organizations around the world that have distinguished themselves by creating business value through the effective and innovative use of information technology. This is the second year in a row that HPM has been honored with a CIO 100 award.

"The CIO 100 honors organizations that have used technology in innovative ways to generate value to the business," said Abbie Lundberg, Editor in Chief of CIO magazine. "Unlike other top lists, it's not about who's biggest -- it's about who's doing the most interesting and relevant things."

Health Plan of Michigan was recognized with the CIO 100 award for integrating historical claims data from the State Medicaid program into its proprietary managed care system to create a comprehensive member health profile. This allows HPM to quickly identify which members joining our health plan are in need of important preventive health services and which members may benefit from other programs, such as disease management.

"HPM is continually seeking out ways to enhance our proprietary managed care system and improve the quality of service to our members and providers," said Thomas Lauzon, Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer for Health Plan of Michigan. "We are honored to be recognized with this prestigious award for the second year in a row."

The 2008 CIO 100 awards will be presented at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado on August 26, 2008 at the conclusion of the tenth annual CIO 100 Symposium(R) and Awards Ceremony.

Health Plan of Michigan is the third largest Medicaid HMO in the State of Michigan, providing health care services to over 146,000 Medicaid enrollees through a contract with the Michigan Department of Community Health (DCH). HPM is a privately owned and physician managed Medicaid health plan. Its corporate headquarters is located in Detroit, Michigan. Currently HPM operates in 42 Michigan counties. HPM is ranked among the Top 10 Medicaid health plans in the country, according to U.S. News/NCQA's America's Best Health Plans. The company has attained an NCQA rating of "Excellent" which is the highest accreditation rating that can be obtained by a managed care organization.
