HealthEdge Announces Winners of its HEX Day for Developers
Company-wide initiative highlights employee creativity and innovation
Burlington, MA, April 8, 2020 – HealthEdge®, provider of the industry’s leading integrated financial, administrative and clinical platform for health insurers, HealthRules Payor ®, announced the winners of its HealthEdge Exploration Day, a hack-a-thon that brought together all departments within the company to create projects, test concepts and theories, and use technology that may not yet be in use. Thirty-four teams – comprised of experts from different areas of the company – gathered last month to join colleagues for a fun experience of making discoveries. Winners were chosen in three product categories: Product, Process & Tools and Automate.
HealthEdge hosted this year’s HEX Day to provide its employees with a creative and innovative outlet to work together outside of their daily roles. Offering the chance to develop projects with the potential to add to a product or process within the company, HEX Day gave HealthEdge employees the downtime to take a known problem and – with the gift of time outside of customer commitments – work holistically toward a common goal. This year’s winners are:
PRODUCT Category: Smart HealthRules Language
Team Members: Rahul Sharma, Sachin Garg, James West
Project: Reduce the HealthRules Language learning curve for customers and partners and increase early impact factor during a sales demonstration
PROCESS & TOOLS Category: Schema Solutions
Team: Sean Frazer, Ashish Desai, Deepak Thomas, Liz Hryniewich
Project: Containerizing the OLTP/DW schema to reduce the overall HealthEdge Product suite install time
AUTOMATE Category: Better Call Jimmy
Team: Nikita Gulabani, Sirisha Gelli, Parvathy Sabbina, Santosh Varanganti
Project: A personal assistant bot to help Human Resources with recruit screening
These projects along with several others, from previous HEX Days, have been green-lighted to continue to build out a proof of concept or have contributed to existing HealthRules software product features.
“This year’s HEX Day was a fun opportunity for our employees to work with colleagues they might not normally interact with, a way to discover new ways of thinking,” said Rajesh Nandyalam, vice president of solution engineering for HealthEdge. “It is inspiring how just two days of open creativity can produce such amazing results from developers who thought through current challenges to create innovative solutions.”
