CASE STUDY: USING MDM FOR REFERENCE DATA AND MORE

Samson Annamdevula, Senior Manager, Master Data Management, HORIZON BCBS OF NEW JERSEY

Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield is New Jersey’s largest health insurance company offering affordable healthcare products and services to its 3.8 million members through a network of about 35000 healthcare professional and 82 hospitals. Horizons journey with Master Data Management began about 4 years ago with creation of single hub for Mastering Provider and Member domains leveraging a Multi-domain MDM platform. Given the complex project requirements and operational challenges with the ad-hoc SharePoint based reference data solution, there was a need to additionally master the reference data domain harnessing existing infrastructure, skillset and governance capabilities. The MDM based RDM initiative was meant to at least greatly mitigate if not eliminate our pain points of the SharePoint solution which involved limited integration capabilities, data model constraints, data divergence and governance enforcement. Coincidentally in addition to sourcing reference data sets from across the Enterprise, currently there is interest from the Horizon business community to leverage RDM capabilities for code set management and also re-platform ICD 10 solution on the multi-domain MDM based RDM hub implementation.
