Health Insurance Core System & Digital Solution Provider
Our client provides core system and digital health solutions for leading health plans. X by 2 created a strategy and roadmap for the client’s core product offerings followed by a targeted analysis of their mainframe claims processing system. The goal? To turn the claims system, which processes approximately 288 million claims per year, auto-adjudicates 90% of all claims and supports nearly 20 million members, into an industry-leading commercial claims processing platform.
The client’s system was fast, efficient, and accurate, but its legacy technology made attracting and onboarding new users difficult. In order to meet user demands in a changing workforce and navigate increasingly complex claims orchestration processes, our client needed:
  • A modernized user experience
  • Improved usability, efficiency, and productivity through a greater level of process transparency, workflow automation, and AI-driven insight
  • Increased agility and adaptability
With a phased, agile development approach, X by 2 introduced a top-down claims modernization strategy and roadmap to help the client reimagine their legacy system.

During the discovery phase we faced:

  • A vast, 4000+ mainframe screen system, making data collection a challenge.
  • An accelerated timeline to modernize the UX without impacting the critical claims system.
  • The need for an adaptable interface, capable of meeting various business requirements.

Leveraging our unique, combined expertise in UX and software architecture, we envisioned:

  • A focused technology strategy involving a robust API gateway to simplify data access and enable AI capabilities.
  • A user-friendly interface built on top of the legacy claims system, making data collection more accessible on the front end.
  • A centralized workspace with flexible interface templates and customizable content comparison capabilities.
