BURLINGTON, Mass., May 8, 2014 -- Panviva Inc., the leader in business process guidance software, will host a complimentary webinar showcasing the early successes and ongoing customer service transformation at Saint Mary’s Health Plans, a top-ranked National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) health payer based in Reno, Nev. Lisa Dettling, director of customer service at Saint Mary’s Health Plans, will describe Saint Mary’s journey to improve operations by re-engineering business processes and consolidating and updating enabling technologies. The webinar will take place on Thursday, May 15 from 1 p.m. -- 2 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. -- 11 a.m. PDT and is intended for health plan business leaders responsible for member acquisition, service and retention.

"That which does not kill us makes us stronger”

Friedrich Nietzsche’s most famous quote captures the experience Saint Mary’s Health Plans had in modernizing its member services operation while managing a new partnership with Nevada Health Link (NV Health Link), the state’s Affordable Care Act (ACA) health insurance exchange. “The Individual Mandate of the ACA presents the opportunity to increase Saint Mary’s Health Plans’ membership by making our products available to more people,” said Dettling. “At the same time, this meant managing significant change. Changes include moving from selling exclusively through brokers to developing direct-to-consumer relationships. Many prospective members never had health insurance, so they understandably have many questions. Increased ‘talk time’ combined with huge spikes in call volume and issues with the NV Health Link exchange challenged us.

In the end, we persevered and innovated in critical ways that has strengthened our business. The story is not over. Open enrollment in Nevada is extended through May. Billing responsibilities may shift from the state exchange to carriers later this year. And then we prepare for 2015 open enrollment. We are making forward progress, and I look forward to sharing our experience with our member services professionals.”
