One of the World’s Largest Health Insurance Companies Chooses

MetricStream Inc., the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that one of the largest health insurance companies in the world with tens of million members, has chosen MetricStream to manage its Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance needs. MetricStream's comprehensive solutions will enable the company to efficiently track and report on regulations and their market conduct examinations and support Conflict of Interests requirements for the organization, among other initiatives. The company is committed to improving the health of American communities, delivering better care to members and providing greater value to customers and stakeholders.

With the passage of the healthcare reform bill, the US health insurance industry is undergoing a sea change. In addition to subsidizing coverage and providing health insurance to millions of uninsured citizens, the reforms are calling for newer regulations and tighter scrutiny. In response, health insurance companies are redefining not only their business models but also their risk and compliance management strategies. A well-designed and well-implemented GRC strategy is crucial to ensuring a smooth transition through the new reforms and challenges.

MetricStream's web-based GRC solutions deliver a powerful combination of process automation, incident tracking and remediation, risk and control assessment and monitoring and document management. Role-based dashboards with a unique drill-down capability provide increased visibility into the risk and compliance status at any time, highlighting issues that need to be addressed. Sophisticated work-flow and collaboration capabilities enable risk and compliance processes to be streamlined and integrated across different business verticals and locations.

“MetricStream provides a gamut of benefits to healthcare and health insurance companies,” says Gaurav Kapoor, CFO and General Manager at MetricStream. “MetricStream solutions were chosen by this leading health insurance company because of its scalability, its flexibility to meet the company's specific needs and its ease of use. Our solution has the unique ability to support the vast and complex enterprise model of the health insurance company.
