Case Study: HEALTHCARE | EASTER SEALS In a remarkable story of the power of the cloud and digital transformation, some much needed help for healthcare in the United States has come from an unlikely source. By partnering with Dell Boomi, the Bay Area non-profit that's changing the way the world defines and views disability by making profound, positive differences in people's lives has pioneered a model for how to build the digital infrastructure for highly efficient, scalable, flexible, and, most importantly, effective healthcare networks. By using Boomi to tie together and orchestrate the exchange of data among a group of cloud-applications and enterprise information systems, the affiliate of Chicago-based Easterseals created both a state-of-the- art digital healthcare information system and a behavioral health provider network that's now managing 7,000 practitioners and $180 million in billings. Most remarkably, Easterseals Bay Area (ESBA) did this practically overnight, transforming from a traditional charity relying on donations and grants to running one of the largest behavioral healthcare networks in the country. A New Law and a New Healthcare Network The story of this transformation began in 2012 when a new California law required healthcare insurers to cover behavioral health treatment for individuals with autism or other pervasive developmental disorders.
