We’ve just delivered an interesting project that brought a wide variety of technologies and techniques together to create a custom application for Midas Recovery Services. Midas works with insurance companies and other health care providers to recover expenses associated with Worker’s Compensation cases and has been using an aging FoxPro database for the past 15 years to manage their business.
Our system collects data about every Worker’s Comp case filed in California, then looks for matches against a table of over 3 million client members. An easy-to-use AJAX user-interface provides information about each case, as well as complete case management and activity tracking tools. Midas has seen processing times go from several hours with the old system to under 1 minute with our optimized mySQL database and object-oriented PHP code. DCP Partners is hosting the application and providing on-going administrative / management services.
Initial response from Midas has been very positive, as they see: significant improvements in their ability to provide service to their clients, increased efficiency of their staff, the security of hosting their core business application in a managed datacenter, and the strength of a solid technology foundation on-which to grown their business. Next on the list – a new public-facing website.
