jalmaNet: online health insurance solution

Founded in 1997, Jalma is widely regarded as the benchmark among healthcare and insurance consultants. In 2000, the company launched jalmaNET, a firm that specializes in the creation and exploration of transactional solutions and content to encompass all aspects of the customer relationship on the Internet, in the health insurance domain. In 2002, jalmaNet planned to extend its activities to the contingency fund and savings domain.

The Challenge
Attentive to its clients’ needs, jalmaNet sought to offer healthcare managers with upgradeable, independent and user-friendly Internet transaction tools. Further, one of these tools, assur_services, needed to incorporate all processes associated with the design and marketing of insurance contracts on the Internet, while offering services that included product creation, rating, and evaluation and on-line underwriting. It was also necessary that assur_services allow for the expansion of contingency funds. JalmaNet entrusted CGI with the development of assur_services
