HealthInSite quickly aggregates millions of claims, giving companies real-time, easy-to-understand data on employee healthcare needs.

Priority Health’s HealthInSite web tool lets customers search and evaluate aggregated employee claim data.

It reports on potentially millions of claims, gathering and displaying detailed cost information from across different parts of a customer’s organization over different periods of time.

Five years after Atomic developed the original HealthInSite in 2009, Priority Health returned to Atomic for a major redesign that would serve more clients, add more data, and replace slow legacy tools.

Atomic Object rebuilt HealthInSite from the ground up, creating an interactive, single-page app that allows users to find and sort data instantly.

Everyone loves using it. Reports we run on other software, they can take a minute or two. HealthInSite is 100 times faster.

Coordinating Stakeholders

In addition to team members Grand Rapids and Atomic Object, this project brought together lots of different groups. Having this many cooks in the kitchen required a lot of coordination and a complex project schedule that balanced several timelines and sets of constraints.

Technical Specs

Atomic designed the system architecture and wrote software and firmware for:

Custom Protocol
Reduces required bandwidth and handle collisions, allowing reliable transfer of a high volume of information through RF and cellular communications back to the data collection service.
Gateway Devices
Each is a Technologic TS 7800 single-board computer with a custom RF receiver. They run a combination of C and Ruby on an embedded Linux system.
Web App

Priority Health loves working with Atomic; that’s why we’ve been with you for the last 10 years. There’s not a bad person in your company. Everyone’s very friendly, very communicative, very available to talk—and just gets stuff done.

Atomic's team designed the user experience around interactivity, judging technical options and user interface decisions by how they would affect speed and usability. HealthInSite finds and displays more information in just 1/10 of a second, while also giving users the ability to drill down into their data.

The data and visualizations in the updated HealthInSite are better targeted to the questions that users already have. The result is a more flexible tool that allows users to ask questions and find answers, rather than choosing from a fixed set of reports.

Atomic Object performed web application development and design for HealthInSite, using C#, Ember.js, mySQL, Oracle and several other languages/tools. HealthInSite is responsive for use on tablets.
