Standard applications Forced to adapt your processes to rigid applications Stove pipe applications (multitude of solutions within your organization, redundant data and error prone) Rigid (hard to change and adapt) Expensive Difficult to customize and maintain Custom (code-based) software development Uncertainty (“you never know what you get” and “I don’t exactly know what I need”) Error prone (humans make mistakes) Expensive (development time * high hourly rate) Flexible in the initial project, rigid in the long run Risky (unforeseen development challenges, reliance on small number of people with in depth knowledge)

28 Agis: Foreign claims process
The Challenge The demand for international healthcare provision is growing fast, therefore Agis is investing heavily in international subsidiaries from where its customers are serviced when treated abroad. However, a challenge arose when Agis processed foreign declarations that didn’t comply with a law imposed by the Dutch government in It requires healthcare providers and insurance companies to use a new government-regulated system for pricing healthcare treatments. Each day huge numbers of declarations arrived at Agis by mail or , using Excel or plain text to be translated, processed and filed manually. Not only was this a costly process, it was also subjective and error-prone. And because it was a manual exception process, it was nearly impossible to structurally report on to the Dutch governing bodies. Requirements Solution for automating foreign claims process, significantly reducing handling costs and meeting compliance regulations Solve the issue of manually translating foreign claim specifications to the Dutch DBC code standards Provide real-time insight in key performance indicators of distributed declaration process Solution has to be integrated with a variety of existing systems and webservices Reduce internal management costs by offering Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Do it quick, realization within 3 months Results The entire international claims handling process is automated, providing foreign healthcare providers access to their own Self-Service Portal The translation issue was solved, dramatically reducing error-margin and human workload, by using an intelligent decision support solution Agis is now able to provide maximal transparency to authorities and has the right tools to comply with future DBC rules and regulations The solution was integrated with several external systems, thereby reusing master data and existing functionality Agis now has a scalable and flexible process solution that paves the way for international growth Turn-key within 8 weeks Technology: Mendix Business Modeler, Mendix AJAX Portal, Mendix Reports, Mendix Dashboard, Mendix XML Application Server, Mendix Connection Bus
