Dallas, TX May 31, 2012 - OpenConnect, the leader in process intelligence and workforce analytics solutions and services, today announced that it will host a breakfast symposium at Institute 2012. OpenConnect CEO Edward M.L. Peters will be joined by Darren Ghanayem, WellPoint’s Vice President of Information Technology, in presenting Effective Strategies for Streamlining Administrative Processes to Meet MLR Requirements.
In this informative session, Mr. Ghanayem will discuss WellPoint’s strategy and targeted initiatives in producing healthcare value, meaning lower cost and higher quality service to address Medical Loss Ratio (MLR).
