Senthilkumar Shanmugam uses his 20+ years of application development and enhancement experience to lead in a variety of areas at Perficient. We recently connected to discuss how he serves our healthcare clients. I also discovered what he values most about the team he leads.
Thank you for joining me, Senthilkumar. I’d love to learn more about your role as a senior solutions architect. Can you tell me how you are serving our healthcare clients?
I am a senior solutions architect in the healthcare business unit. I lead delivery for a major payer. Also, I lead the maintaining, enhancing, and developing of solutions for EDI applications.
The customers expect us to design and develop EDI applications that meet their ever-changing business needs. These applications are the backbone of the payer’s day-to-day operations.
The applications we support and develop include enrollment, claims processing, claims payment, remittance, claims status inquiry, etc.
What do you enjoy most about working at Perficient?
I lead account development initiatives, lay the foundation for account growth, and work with engagement. I also lead a highly capable team that is 30 members strong. Perficient has a multi-shore team that is able to collaborate across borders.
One thing I love about Perficient is that the team I get to work with is highly motivated and self-driven.
As a result of this drive and motivation, we have been collaborating effectively for years.
