BlueCross BlueShield of Vermont to Present with VUE Software at 2008 Gartner Healthcare IT Summit
Coconut Creek, FL, 10/3/2008 – VUE Software, a leading provider of insurance-specific business solutions, along with current client Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont (BCBSVT), today announced their joint plan to participate in the upcoming Gartner Healthcare IT Summit as the distinguished guests of Microsoft, a Diamond Level event sponsor.
The event, which will be held on November 16-19 at the San Diego Sheraton in California, is attended by executives of health care providers and health insurance carriers, as well as IT vendors and resources. The summit will showcase solutions and best practices in the use of technology as a key differentiator in enabling effective care and business efficiency.
Microsoft has sponsored the conference for four years, hosting boardroom sessions for health care executives and interactive demonstration booths for all attendees. This year, Microsoft has chosen BCBSVT as a health plan industry partner to present its case study with VUE Software at two high-level executive boardroom sessions. VUE Software will also demonstrate its health plan solutions in the Microsoft information booth.
Computer Solutions and Software International (CSSI), parent company of VUE Software, has been a Microsoft Partner since 1991 and a Gold Certified Partner (Microsoft’s highest partner designation) for over 4 years. Microsoft invited BCBSVT to speak after hearing their story of how VUE Software will save the company around $3.5 million, and how the solution ‘paid for itself’ in less than 6 months.
The invitation signifies both Microsoft and BCBSVT belief in the high value and quality of VUE Compensation Management 6.0. VUE Software is passionate about helping health plans save money, improve internal processes, and enhance the provider-broker relationship. The Gartner summit will be an opportunity for VUE Software to make further industry connections and allow more health plans to see the benefits of VUE Software solutions firsthand.
