The National Health Policy Group (NHPG)
is a leading health care policy and consulting group with a special
focus on improving policy and practice for health plans and
providers that serve high-risk Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries.
NHPG provides strategic planning and government relations services
to health plans and providers, trade associations, health care
coalitions, state agencies and other stakeholders in the areas of
specialty care for high-risk beneficiaries.
NHPG needed a clean, accessible site
that provided the employees of its member organizations with access
to their content, but didn't want to spend their days managing
individual accounts. They had also had trouble in the past with
vendors who used proprietary solutions that left them tied to the
vendor for better or worse.
Our solution? Moving the existing NHPG
site to Umbraco, an open-source platform based on Microsoft .Net
technologies. In addition to providing the bulk of NHPG's
requirements "out of the box", the combination of a popular
technological base and freely available and documented source code
ensured that NHPG's new site will be vendor independent. We then
took the existing membership system within Umbraco and customized
it to allow NHPG's member organizations to manage their own
individual accounts. Each organization can now create individual
accounts under their control, allowing them to tailor their use of
NHPG's resources to suit their needs, while allowing NHPG to retain
control over their content.
