At Aetna, we offer health care, dental, pharmacy, group life, disability, and long-term care insurance and employee benefits to millions of Americans. That coverage means we have a massive group of healthcare providers we work with. 

Keeping our database of provider information up-to-date and accurate requires us repeatedly call these providers to verify their information. At the same time, these providers have to answer the same questions over and over again when other health insurance companies need the same information. This creates significant fatigue for providers. 

We want your BIG ideas for coming up with a new way to gather and verify provider information. We're looking for out of the box, breakthrough approaches, not overly specific and technical solutions. You should strive to come up with the Uber of ideas--the more creative and disruptive, the better.

We want your help coming up with a new way to identify errors and obsolete information in our provider database, and we want to do it in a way that requires no action on the part of our providers. We're open to everything from the most simple ideas to the most technical ones--they just need to improve our process.


Tell us your big idea that would revolutionize the way we gather and verify provider information. Specifically:

  1. Explain your idea in detail. What technology, current or futuristic, would you use? 
  2. How would a provider be prompted for information, if they are prompted at all?
  3. How does your idea reduce the fatigue placed on providers by the current method?

HELPFUL HINTS: We aren't looking for you to give us a technical answer. We want big ideas. Don't hesitate to think about future technology.
