RAM Technologies, Inc. and Wipro Technologies, the global information technology, consulting and outsourcing business of Wipro Limited (NYSE:WIT) are pleased to announce a strategic alliance and the availability of an integrated software and services solution to dramatically reduce costs and simplify the administrative demands on health plans participating in the Medicare / Medicaid Financial Alignment Initiative. The joint solution eliminates the operational challenges, providing health plans with the technology and staffing infrastructure required to support this initiative.

This enables health plans to meet critical functional readiness deadlines, and participate in the demonstration with limited administrative cost and significantly reduced operational risk.

"Wipro's full complement of business optimization services combined with the HEALTHsuite platform provides health plans with a comprehensive services offering that may be implemented quickly," states Christopher P. Minton, Executive Vice President of RAM Technologies.
