KKH Selects Accenture To Improve Productivity By Standardizing IT Systems

Accenture (NYSE:ACN) has signed a four-year contract extension with the Kaufmännische Krankenkasse (KKH), one of the largest statutory health insurers in Germany, to help deliver healthcare information technology (IT), training, application development and maintenance services.

“IT is vital for KKH to ensure that we use our policyholders’ premiums in an efficient way and, at the same time, offer them the best possible services,” says Dr. Ulrich Vollert, who leads the IT organization at KKH. “The IT system supports our business practices and enables better quality of services and improved cost savings.”

Under the agreement, Accenture also will also help to implement and support the integration of KKH’s accounting and document management IT systems, project management and IT developer training. The document management approach will include an interface that Accenture has help designed to align with KKH’s existing in-house software and has helped enable data exchange between systems from a single platform. The document management system will enable KKH’s employees to securely access information at multiple locations.

“We look forward to helping KKH implement a consistent, highly productive IT system,” said Hans Aubauer, managing director of Accenture’s health business in Germany. “Using Accenture Health Administration Services, KKH will improve business productivity with effective services that will support the needs of policyholders and employees.”
