In addition to having the largest contingent of HealthEdge specialists in the industry, our combined team now offers the most experienced resources available in the market today to support HealthRules Payor and HealthRules CareManager Implementations,” said Michael Ragan, senior vice president of Healthcare & Life Sciences, NTT DATA, Inc. “Together, our team of over 300 professionals have worked on over 90% of all HealthRules Payor implementations, assuring clients the experience and capacity to meet their ongoing support needs.”
