TEANECK, N.J., May 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cognizant (NASDAQ: CTSH) today announced the launch of the TriZetto Healthcare Cloud Solution, a new secure, compliant managed services platform for healthcare payers of any size, powered by Microsoft Azure.
The TriZetto Healthcare Cloud Solution provides a flexible, efficient on-demand infrastructure for increased operational efficiency, automation and reduced administrative costs. Based on Cognizant's TriZetto Facets and QNXT end-to-end core administration software, the new solution is available on Azure, Microsoft's HITRUST CSF-certified cloud platform. A managed services cloud solution enables healthcare organizations to pay only for the infrastructure they use, be more innovative and better respond to shifting regulations and reforms.
The new TriZetto Healthcare Cloud Solution is being implemented by Wisconsin Physicians Service Insurance Corporation (WPS Health Solutions), a leading not-for-profit health insurer. Based in Madison, Wisconsin, WPS Health Solutions plans to migrate its administration infrastructure to the cloud to improve efficiencies and member experience and more rapidly introduce innovative new products across its plans.
"Health insurance and benefits administration are changing rapidly, and we're committed to using the latest digital technologies to innovate and lead while improving the quality of service to our members," said Kerra Guffey, Chief Information Officer, WPS Health Solutions. "By leveraging Cognizant's expertise and TriZetto's healthcare platform on Microsoft Azure cloud, we are confident we will improve the services we provide to our members, securely test new capabilities without disrupting our business, and improve operational efficiencies."

"Cognizant's new TriZetto Healthcare Cloud Solution joins our extensive portfolio of pre-built, Azure cloud-enabled solutions that help organizations in multiple industries improve the flexibility, agility and security of their most complex environments and mission-critical workloads. Delivering our leading TriZetto capabilities on a cloud-based model helps healthcare payers reduce their administrative costs and re-focus their resources on new digital healthcare solutions that improve member and provider value and experience."
Judson Althoff, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Commercial Business at Microsoft, said, "Businesses of all sizes are using Microsoft Azure to power their digital transformations while reducing their dependency on legacy technology, finding new ways to leverage digital channels, and rethinking how their businesses, and their people, work together. The TriZetto Healthcare Cloud Solution from Cognizant capitalizes on the advanced security, compliance and economic benefits of Azure to help health insurers become more agile and efficient while lowering costs."
