Maturing digital policy practices at a managed healthcare company
A Fortune 100 managed healthcare corporation focused on insurance with over 45 million subscribers. The company operates in the US and partners internationally to serve Americans aboard.
- The company had already established a baseline set of digital policies, mostly around website quality.
- Yet, as they got ready to roll out a new decentralized digital development environment, the organization wanted to rethink its digital policy dynamics and decision-making.
- How could they balance the organization’s need for cost-effective, brand-building development with diverse departments’ need for flexibility?
- To determine the right policy management approach and mature their practices, I devoted six weeks to:
- Conducting a gap analysis of existing policies against industry regulatory requirements and good practices
- Defining, documenting, and socializing new policies to close those gaps with the digital team
- Establishing the role of the policy steward and identifying policy authors
- Starting to manage policies through their full-lifecycle management
- I left the organization with a consolidated set of policies to drive efficiency and protect their digital investment.
- As a direct result of the policy initiative, the organization has seen:
- Increased regulatory and legal compliance
- Higher quality digital content and, as a result, higher customer satisfaction
- Digital consistency across its divisions
- 6 weeks
- 45 million members
- 10 policies
