Are you a software development professional looking to expand your network, gain more understanding about the healthcare industry or are looking for new opportunities? Or do you have professional IT experience, but looking to transition into the software development space?

Look no further! Health Care Service Corporation (Independent Licensee of Blue Cross Blue Shield Association) is opening our doors to Chicagoland software developers. Come and learn about who we are as a technology company in the healthcare landscape and how we support our members. From an industry perspective, HCSC operates through Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans in Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.

For those who think Blue Cross Blue Shield is just a “mom-and-pop shop” healthcare company, we invite you to come and see what we have been “cooking up” over the past few years in our technology space; specifically, our Application Development area.

We will have several key technology leaders eager to speak on some of the changes we have been implementing and what is coming down the pipeline for our organization.

Three (3) short presentations, each followed by ~5-10 minutes of audience Q&A.
