Short Description:

Complete Description:

This position is for the BWC Core Direction project. BWC is currently operating in an environment with limited to moderate automated functionality and data access.  Many business processes have manual or system (e.g., Excel, Access, etc.) workarounds.  Multiple applications are used to support single processes.  Lack of data, when and where needed, lack of integration between existing legacy applications and implementation of business process change regardless of application support drive many of the workarounds.  A portion of correspondence is manually generated and custom letter databases exist throughout BWC.  Multiple processes utilize the same workarounds.  Claims processes are the most mature, followed by billing processes with policy processes being the least mature.

The BWC Core System initiative, will replace several legacy systems with a claims, policy and billing COTS software solution known as Powersuite.  These legacy systems include:

1. Claims processing – Version 3

2.Claims processing – Imaging

3.Policy Management and Billing – WCIS
