Standard Register And Cody Consulting Unveil First Health Plan-Specific Suite Of Project Management Software And Services

Standard Register (NYSE:SR), a leader in managing critical communications for healthcare, and Cody Consulting, a leading consultant to managed care organizations, announced they have developed the first health plan-specific suite of project management software and services. Powered by CodySoft™, MarcomNAVIGATOR™ manages the complexities of creating, producing and deploying member communications in compliance with regulatory requirements.

“This is a natural evolution of our six-year relationship with Standard Register,” said Deb Mabari, CEO and founder of Cody Consulting. “Health plans have been struggling for years with managing their marketing collateral materials. MarcomNAVIGATOR is a game-changer for an industry that must deal with constant changes from both the state and the fed.”

A Web-based application, MarcomNAVIGATOR™ integrates all areas of the health plan environment -- compliance, IT, creative services and operations. It provides a common platform for departmental communications, document creation, compliance tracking, asset management as well as production and inventory management. A Regulatory Analyzer™, comprehensive reporting and audit trails are built into the process to reduce errors and compliance risk.

“With this end-to-end project management tool and our digital communication capabilities, payers have a seamless way to push out the right communications to the right members, securely and on time, while giving members and call centers access to them through a secure communication portal,” explained Brian Yavorsky, director of Digital Solutions for Standard Register.

Standard Register’s digital communications platform is supported by an enterprise-wide security strategy that encompasses compliance and governance, administrative programs and policies, physical safeguards and technology safeguards.

“Effective management of critical communications and workflows are essential to healthcare’s transformation,” said Brad Cates, president for Standard Register Healthcare. “By collaborating with Cody Consulting, we now can provide payers with an integrated approach to drive regulatory compliance, substantial cost savings and improved member engagement which are vital to their economic success,” he said.
