SAN FRANCISCO, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With a variety of successful client engagements completed or underway in the dynamic healthcare industry, Prophet today formally announced the launch of a practice specifically focusing on the field.

- Redesigning the customer experience for a major U.S. health insurance company.
