PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Kryptiq, the leading provider of next generation healthcare connectivity solutions, today announced that Regence, the largest not-for-profit health insurance carrier in the Pacific Northwest and Mountain State regions, has successfully implemented Kryptiq's Choreo(TM) Suite. Regence is utilizing the Choreo Suite to increase contracting efficiency, improve management of alternative contract language and enable rapid assessment of contract compliance across its entire network. With Choreo, Regence was recently able to create 23,000 contracts and 4,000 amendments, while maintaining a complete audit history of all contracts activities.

"Since implementing Kryptiq's Choreo Suite, we've seen an improvement in our ability to produce, store and query contracts and amendments supporting our core business," said John Wagner, vice president of network strategy, provider operations and dental programs for Regence.
