Amerigroup has provided healthcare insurance to customers in the United States for over 20 years. They serve more than seven million customers around the country. Amerigroup employs more than 7,000 people in multiple states, including Texas and Washington. They cover patients with all sorts of conditions, both physical and mental nature. Their care is tailored to each patient, taking into account their needs and expectations.

The Challenge

Amerigroup contacted Achieve to help support the launch and host of a new corporate website built on Drupal. The project proved to be a great challenge to Achieve for a number of different reasons. Achieve had to utilize all of its expertise in Drupal development to deliver a project that allowed Amerigroup to launch their digital property with confidence that the site would perform up to Amerigroup’s standards and maintain regulatory compliance with HIPAA, HITECH, and Sarbanes-Oxley.

The Solution

Achieve developed a system that authorized content authors to make updates to the website and put those updates through an internal review process, subsequently deploying content updates to the live production environment once approved.  Achieve delivered a hosting environment that was easily extensible to accommodate the future growth of Amerigroup’s systems.  Behind these servers, our developers configured a MySQL cluster to handle all of the data storage needs of the sites.


Achieve provided Amerigroup with a robust, flexible, and extensible infrastructure for handling both its immediate and near-future hosting needs.  Additionally, our all-star development team provided systems that allowed Amerigroup to comply with the need to manage content deployment and provide a solid audit trail of changes made to the system. All of this was made possible while adhering to all regulatory practices and standards.

We were able to provide an elegant solution to the myriad of compliance and regulatory challenges facing Amerigroup’s digital infrastructure.   Achieve built an online property that was compliant in all facets from the servers, to the administrators, and that was delivered as an intuitive interface for the end-user.
