WellPoint Named to 2009 InformationWeek 500 List of Top Technology Innovators

INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- WellPoint, Inc. (NYSE: WLP) announced today that it has been selected for the 2009 InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation's most innovative users of business technology. This is WellPoint's first year on the list.

"WellPoint's inclusion in the 2009 InformationWeek 500 validates many of the innovations we are implementing to simplify the connection between health, care and value for our members and their health care providers," said Lori Beer, executive vice president and chief information officer for WellPoint. "This includes our partnership with Availity, LLC, which simplifies many aspects of health care administration for providers."

As the partnership with Availity is implemented, physicians can use a single Web-based application to process their claims for WellPoint-affiliated health plans alongside claims for other plans. The savings of time and money for providers, members and customers reflects WellPoint's commitment to manage administrative costs throughout the health care system. "Every penny saved on forms, phone calls, claims and benefit administration is money that can be invested in innovative products and services that improve the health of our members," added Beer.

"For more than 20 years, the InformationWeek 500 has honored the most innovative users of business technology," said InformationWeek Editor-in-Chief Rob Preston. "Year after year, InformationWeek 500 companies harness technology to improve efficiency, boost productivity, drive revenue, and establish a competitive advantage. We applaud this year's winners as well as the CIOs and other executives whose ingenuity and risk taking are at the center of business technology innovation."

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing, now in its 21st year, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of America's best-known companies. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as they spotlight the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
