Wiener Gebietskrankenkasse (WGKK – Vienna health insurance) provides - together with its contractual partners - efficient and profound medical care for its 1.124.000 insurants and their 400.000 non-contributory relatives. It is a public corporation and organized as self-government - just like the other Austrian social insurances. This form of organization guarantees to be as close as possible to the insurants and independent from state.
The WGKK continuously extends its services to conform to the social and rapid medical developments.
With the help of AMELIO Modernization Platform from Delta Software Technology, the WGKK replaced all database accesses previously using an Assembler call interface with Embedded SQL (ESQL). By this modernization WGKK could increase the performance of the application package “Leistungen” for insurance payments and services significantly. At the same time the modernized applications became portable and thus were prepared for a platform migration.
"AMELIO allowed us to build a modernization factory that reduced the effort needed for a critical SQL migration project in our core UNISYS OS 2200 applications by 70%.
Our trust in AMELIO was also repeatedly confirmed in other transformation projects, including Y2K and an ACOB/UCOB COBOL compiler migration project"
