GROUPE STERIA : STERIA and ELOÏSE, a subsidiary of CIMUT join forces to develop the new APRIA RSA information system

"The Starweb® solution is chosen to manage the AAEXA (ATEXA) compulsory insurance plan"

Paris, May 19, 2008 - Following a call for tenders, the professional organization Apria R.S.A. has chosen the Starweb® solution as the future system for managing the AAEXA (or ATEXA) compulsory insurance plan for farmers against occupational accidents and diseases.

This solution was proposed by Steria, a global IT services company, and was developed by Eloïse, a subsidiary of CIMUT (French Mutual Insurance Information Processing Centre), the IT specialist for health insurance professions. It meets the specific requirements for administering this plan, offering functions that make it possible to manage contributions, benefits and the tools for monitoring administration of the activity. By deploying this new application, Apria R.S.A. wishes to improve the quality of service for farmers.

A partnership between Steria and Eloïse to maximize skills

Based on its expertise in the field of health insurance, Steria uses its own resources, including over 50 business consultants, and offers perfect command of the processes, as well as experience in conducting substantial projects as well as the processes, methods and dedicated tools involved. Other benefits offered by Steria for this project are its knowledge of managing large and complex projects, its production capacity and its facilities, in particular its service centre in Nantes.
The solution developed by Steria is intended to meet all technical and organizational constraints, to make it easier to incorporate changes in the compulsory plans. Eloïse offers perfect command of its technical solution, as well as its professional expertise.
The solution developed by Eloïse makes it possible to extend access to all or part of the information system to all of the players (beneficiaries and health professionals) while maintaining traceability and control of different levels of access rights. The benefits offered by Eloïse : Increase reporting and management capacities

Take part in ongoing improvement of the range and the quality of service

Contribute to the coherence of the future APRIA information system

The challenges involved:

To develop an efficient and responsive system that ensures modernization, quality of service for users and reliability of data and of data reproduction.
To take part in managing the AAEXA (or ATEXA) compulsory plan, the insurance companies have created the AAEXA Insurers Association. They have delegated management of this association to Apria R.S.A.

To carry out its mission, Apria R.S.A. was looking for a software solution suited to the specific characteristics of this plan, enabling it to improve the quality of service for the 400,000 farmer policyholders.

Apria R.S.A. also required a solution offering management tools able to meet the statutory requirements for managing compulsory plans, as well as the expectations of the supervisory authority, the French Ministry of Agriculture regarding cost control, productivity, management performance, policyholder satisfaction index and control.

This project must be operational by the time of the next call for contributions at the end of October 2008.
