View Tech to Provide Unicare Videoconferencing

Unicare, a subsidiary of WellPoint Health Networks Inc., has contracted with View Tech Inc. in Camarillo for a videoconferencing system and related service offerings valued in excess of $800,000.

The View Tech systems will be deployed at key Unicare corporate and regional sites as well as district sales offices.

"Aggressively reducing travel and related expenses through the use of videoconferencing has been part of our company's communications strategy since 1992, when the first View Tech systems were installed," said Rich Ranelli, chief information officer of WellPoint, which is based in Woodland Hills.

WellPoint Health Networks, one of the nation's largest publicly traded managed-care companies, serves the health-care needs of about 6.7 million medical members and nearly 22 million specialty members nationally through Blue Cross of California and Unicare offices throughout the country.
