Client: National Healthcare Consortium
Industry: Hospitals and Managed Care, Health Plans, Insurance
Success Factors: Digital Maturity, Engineering and Operations
The existing resources of this national healthcare consortium were challenged to integrate years of various legacy web and service portals cohesively under one architecture design to meet the upcoming company deadline for re-brand under the new merger.
Smartek21 Inherits Failed and Complex Migration, Improves Site Performance and Delivers Critical Healthcare Customer Rebrand Meeting Merger Deadline
SmarTek21 swiftly pulled the Client through a five-year failed migration in four months. SmarTek21 also became a trusted “big picture” partner to the National Health Consortium by eliminating reliance on numerous outsourced providers and services; thereby providing the Enterprise Services organization significant cost-savings. Additionally, ST21 technologist thought-leaders built trust with (competing) third party consulting vendors, who up-leveled their own delivery efforts when our Team demonstrated a strong commitment to collaborate and integrate.
SmarTek21 delivered value through:
- Application currency and technical depth across seventeen disparate systems to deliver integration and legacy application re-factoring; an effort with little-to-no ramp time
- An architecture that tapered reliance on servers while decommissioning ageing enterprise infrastructures, saving millions of dollars on redundant system and software costs (ex. ATG Dynamo)
- Migration of home page and static assets from legacy content management to new team site branch architecture, with a more responsive UI and simplified back end inputs, incorporating 250 major SEO enhancements
- A multi-domain enterprise service-level integration, on-time and under budget creating a seamless “light switch” integration regional provider to a respected national healthcare brand, handling over 30M views per month with no errors with a 40 percent cost savings over existing teams.
The regional healthcare consortium had an urgent time frame to deliver a unified online brand in time with their merger-and-acquisition by a national healthcare provider. Given a condensed time frame there were over two-hundred thousand legacy assets requiring renaming, and remapping to the new domains in 6-weeks with zero defects.
The engagement would span enterprise-wide web services encompassing over 2000 publicly accessible pages and static assets, as well as 8600 internal pages; all requiring seamless re-branding at the go-live switch date. This client needed to remain “business-as-usual” during the national integration, with information rendered under one view. Maintaining and improving user experience to both internal and external customers was paramount.
SmartTek21 sought to set a new benchmark for this client’s perception of digital delivery partnership. Enveloping the existing enterprises services plan, SmarTek21 focused its on-site engineering team on accelerating a version of the internal roadmap that furthered the work of incumbent development teams. High-level technical oversight and a fully inclusive analysis of integration touch-points within this enterprise solutions partner ecosystem quickly identified major architecture and design flaws. Our customer-focused view enabled us to partner as execution strategists working with existing third party vendors, identifying gaps and solutions, moving projects forward without ego of authorship, or over-investment in legacy execution and delivery tactics. We quickly became recognized as a “go-to” execution partner across all entities within this national healthcare consortium.
