Great Project, Great Team, Nice Recognition

It’s been a long time since my last blog post, but I’ve got some very cool news that I just learned about last week and that I want to share. For the past two-and-a-half-years exUrban, Inc. has been a subcontractor to Sapient on a very large, long-term engagement with insurance provider Cigna. We, as part of Sapient, essentially embedded with Cigna, working very closely with them and other partners to overhaul, rework, and rebuild their customer portal (MyCigna), as well as their health care professional portal (Cigna Health Care Professional Portal — CHCPP). I’ve done a writeup, previously, read it here.

A large component of the customer portal that we started working on in 2011 and launched in 2012 is the Health Care Professional search and compare tool. Sapient delivered the front end experience: IA/UX, design and front end markup. I served as producer for this team. In early September 2012, Information Week recognized this project as a top 20 Great Ideas to Steal in 2012 and also ranked Cigna #7 in it’s IT top 500 for 2012.

This is a great honor for the whole team who worked on this project and some much deserved recognition. I am proud of the work that the team did on these challenging and interesting projects, and am proud to have been a part of this engagement.Congratulations to Cigna and Sapient as well, we appreciate the opportunity to be a part of this awesome project.
