  • At a national health plan, Ed led the development and successful production implementation of an image-based work management system for membership, collections and employee self-service functions.  These deployments included the redesign of member enrollment processes,  enhancement of collection practices for out-of-network claims, and introduction of new employee self-service HR administration capabilities (in production)
