CEO’S PERSPECTIVE

You probably think that you know NASCO. Most people have some idea of what they think NASCO is — or was. But what you may not know is that NASCO has been hard at work transforming our organization into a modern and agile healthcare technology company. Of course, some things haven’t changed — we are still owned by and exclusively serve Blue Cross and Blue Shield health plans, and we are still committed to ensuring that the Blues are primed for the future of healthcare. 

We are not a vendor. We are a partner — a partner whose sole purpose is to ensure your success. Nobody wants to go it alone, and we’re not going to let you. We’re all in this together. Collaborating. Innovating. Co-creating. 

Over the years, we have partnered with the Blues to build shared solutions and leverage shared investments, which saves you time and money and connects you to companies just like yours. This concept was one of the key drivers behind Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont’s (BCBSVT) total system migration to NASCO. This migration was an immense undertaking for the health plan, and it was the epitome of collaboration. We worked closely with the health plan throughout this multiyear migration effort, and together, we celebrated the successful completion this multiyear migration effort at the end of 2018.    

NASCO has re-emerged as a leading technology innovator. We have partnered with technology incubators, like Georgia Tech’s Advanced Technology Development Center, to create a new initiative for entrepreneurs in healthcare-focused technology. We have developed our Digital Connector platform to enable health plans to transform their consumer-centric services. And we have formed a consortium of health plans that is focused on delivering breakthrough technologies, like blockchain, to the healthcare industry.  

We are co-creating products that meet the growing needs of healthcare consumers. We’re changing the way we work by engaging in Agile-based projects and offering flexible delivery models to support our plan partners’ delivery practices. We are enabling concierge servicing to help our plan partners deliver better experiences for consumers, and we’re also working with our plan partners to co-create a set of comprehensive capabilities to help grow their ancillary product business to meet the increasing requests for voluntary, specialized, boutique and custom benefits in a streamlined manner. 

Whether we are collaborating, innovating or co-creating, NASCO is dedicated to developing superior technologies that enable Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies to deliver great service and win in the market.
