DC Health Link offers a range of coverage choices to District residents and small businesses. A spring survey of DC Health Link customers found that 25 percent of people in the individual market were uninsured prior to enrollment, 50 percent of people eligible for Medicaid were uninsured prior to enrollment, and 4 out of 10 small businesses did not offer coverage to their employees prior to introduction of DC Health Link Small Business SHOP Marketplace.
The fourth DC Health Link open enrollment, which ended January 31,resulted in nearly 24, residents selecting private health plans for coverage—more new customers than either of the past two years. Change requests cost hundreds of thousands—and at times millions—of dollars due to the complexity of changing hard-coded software.
Product development cycles were six to twelve months or longer. Code upgrades and changes required the entire code to be redeployed and the marketplace to be offline in maintenance, which meant customers could not use the marketplace while the system was down.
System capacity was low, resulting in system timeouts and other obstacles to enrollment.
These products were not flexible enough to meet evolving business requirements, were expensive to maintain, and were not scalable. The Solution Into help achieve sustainability and a customer-centric online experience for SHOP and individual marketplace customers, HBX began migrating the DC Health Link IT system from traditional data centers to an agile, cloud-based model using open-source code with no licensing fees.
HBX was the first state-based marketplace to migrate to the cloud, and it is still the only such marketplace in the cloud. HBX chose to move to the cloud using Amazon Web Services AWS because it offers the ability to develop software and new features rapidly, meet federal security and compliance standards, and contain costs.
AWS Service Catalog gives the organization centralized control over cloud configurations, which can be quickly deployed for different users. HBX used three key strategies to transition to the flexible, cost-effective, and financially sustainable solution required to meet its broad mission with limited resources.
Using an agile cloud-based approach and open-source code allows HBX to speed its development cycles and make frequent changes without taking the system down.
HBX has also deployed best-in-class decision-support tools. Additionally, HBX makes continuous improvements to its solution, with new deployments occurring weekly without the system having to go down.
The agency was able to do this while winding down down its federal grant funding and keeping the industry-wide assessment that funds the Authority at the same one-percent level. HBX and the state provider entered into the first state-based marketplace partnership in the nation.
HBX deployed the IT solution—with customizations such as rating areas and composite rates—in August and has provided business support since then. This partnership also means HBX and the state provider will share the cost of future improvements and required federal changes.
In JanuaryDC Health Link was ranked number one among public marketplaces for its online consumer-decision support tools.
Most importantly, its customer satisfaction is up and call volume and escalated cases are down—three metrics considered by HBX to be key success indicators. The HBX open-source cloud solution is a model with enormous potential payoff for the public sector, because it demonstrates how agencies can align their IT environment with their mission and customer needs by using cloud services, which provide the flexibility to react to ever-changing priorities and are cost-effective to deploy and to maintain.The Department of Biomedical Engineering was established in at Case Western Reserve University, founded on the premise that engineering principles provide an important basis for innovative and unique solutions to a wide range of biomedical and clinical challenges.
