Empowering the Technology of Healthcare
ASHLAND, OR – Headquartered in Southern Oregon, PLEXIS delivers enterprise core healthcare administration and claims management solutions to employer groups and healthcare payers throughout the United States and 15 countries, affecting over 70 million people worldwide.
“At PLEXIS, our guiding mission is to create positive and meaningful change within the healthcare industry,” said Jorge Yant, founder, and CEO. Yant turned a bold idea into a Silicon Valley dream come true when he launched PLEXIS in 1996. From the beginning, he understood that half of the success of a healthcare company was the health and wellbeing of its employees. The standard of excellence across PLEXIS’ products and services is a clear reflection of the passion and talent that permeates PLEXIS’ culture.
PLEXIS’ bold idea is to lower the cost of healthcare internationally, while also embracing the human side of the equation. They do so by dedicating significant resources to enhancing their claims management software, while at the same time developing integration solutions with technology leaders to ensure needs are met as quickly and efficiently as possible. With the proven strength of their agile, scalable technology, PLEXIS is prepared for the complex administrative and technological changes to come in the healthcare field.
The company has six guiding principles: work/life balance, relationships, health, creativity, community, and fun. PLEXIS uses these guiding principles as a foundation for all relationships, from strategic partnerships to customers, and among employees. These guiding principles allow employees to co-create within established parameters to create the best outcome for all parties involved.
“I see Plexicans appreciating and participating in co-creating the culture we’ve nourished here at PLEXIS,” said Coppersmith. “Our corporate culture extends to our approach to customer relationships and partnerships which reflect our commitment to valued relationships, collaboration, and integrity.” PLEXIS is proud to support a knowledgeable team dedicated to advancing technology in the healthcare industry.
PLEXIS fosters a corporate culture rooted in mindfulness practice. Among other employee benefit offerings in the PLEXIS Wellness Program, employees receive complimentary meditation retreats, childcare, and massage therapy; they enjoy fresh juices, supplements, and on-tap kombucha at the “brain bar”; and they participate in numerous on-site classes including yoga, Pilates, and Zumba. Yant, a practitioner of yoga and meditation, fosters a culture of individual expression and creativity encouraging “Plexicans,” as they refer to themselves, to bring their dogs to work, and on Fridays, different departments take turns whipping up breakfast for everyone in the building. “We have one of the most progressive foundations for workplace wellness in Southern Oregon,” said Terri Coppersmith, Vice President of Finance.
Plexicans, along with Yant and his family, “pay it forward” by participating in corporate philanthropy initiatives. In 2016, they launched a unique program to gamify support for a favorite charity, NativeVision. NativeVision is a partnership operated by Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health and the National Football League Players’ Association to mentor Native youth. The more steps employees and strategic partners took, the more money PLEXIS pledged to give to NativeVision. Overall, this program resulted in raising money for NativeVision, increasing the visibility of the charity, and aligning with the corporate guiding principles of work/life balance, health, and fun.
PLEXIS has remained committed to Southern Oregon by fostering a culture that attracts talented tech industry professionals who choose to relocate for the wealth of local resources including the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Britt Festival, wine tasting, golfing, whitewater rafting, local cuisine, and Southern Oregon’s unique lifestyle.
PLEXIS hosts its annual users’ conference for clients, partners, prospects, and employees. Featuring industry keynotes, roundtable discussions, and more, the conference provides a unique opportunity to network with fellow software users, technology partners, and Plexicans. In keeping with PLEXIS’ guiding values, the conference is an excellent opportunity to showcase all the Rogue Valley has to offer.
