America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) is the national trade association representing the health insurance industry. AHIP’s members provide health and supplemental benefits to more than 200 million Americans through employer-sponsored coverage, the individual insurance market, and public programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. AHIP advocates for public policies that expand access to affordable health care coverage to all Americans through a competitive marketplace that fosters choice, quality and innovation. AHIP selected Fig Leaf Software to support the organization’s content managed public website built on the Ektron CMS and blogs built in WordPress to provide enhancements to support their online web strategy.
Fig Leaf analyzed AHIP’s existing code and the complaints they were getting from users, which included numerous login and permission bugs, and determined that most of the issues could be resolved by rewriting the custom code driving their menus, replacing them with the standard Ektron Flexmenu controls. Fig Leaf determined that not only would this solve the immediate issues, but it would give AHIP a more stable platform to build upon for further enhancement, and would reduce ongoing support costs.
Fig Leaf has also helped AHIP to build out new features within their CMS and their website, leveraging Fig Leaf’s stable of programmers, designers and web developers. Fig Leaf Software has provided AHIP with a wide variety of design and programming services to include:
- Design and Creative Services
- Content Management Support Services (Ektron/EpiServer and WordPress)
- iMIS Association Management System integration
- General ongoing support
- Supplemental Staffing
- Enterprise Search
AHIP continues to utilize Fig Leaf Software’s full service content management programming expertise to enhance and maintain the public website. Together, Fig Leaf and AHIP resources are working to improve the overall experience of the AHIP website, manage the organization’s WordPress blogs, and to help AHIP forge new partnerships in furthering its strategic mission.
