FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EngagePoint today announced that its SVP of Architecture and Platform, Sam Hua will be a featured speaker at the 2013 Healthcare Payments & Policy Conference in Washington, D.C. July 15-16. Taking part in an executive panel, Hua will discuss the integration and data challenges of implementing health insurance exchanges, now being referred to as marketplaces.

"The challenges of implementing state-based health insurance exchanges include very tight timelines and having to integrate core components that are still evolving and changing," said Hua. "Doing it right doesn't mean taking longer. The approach a state pursues will not only affect its ability to meet the Oct. 1 deadline, but also its ability to support future requirements and policy changes. It's critical for states to think in terms of sustainable solutions that can support state health care and human services requirements after Oct. 1, 2014,  Jan. 1, 2014, Jan. 1, 2015 and beyond."

During the panel discussion, Hua will describe the three dimensions of integration and why all three must be addressed holistically. EngagePoint is currently the systems integrator for both the Maryland and Minnesota state based marketplaces (exchanges), and working in Arkansas and Missouri to modernize their eligibility and enrollment systems.
