Burlington, MA, October 7, 2020 – HealthEdge Software, Inc.® (“HealthEdge”), provider of the industry’s leading integrated financial, administrative and clinical platform for health insurers, HealthRules® Payor, today announced it has joined the Tech Compact for Social Justice. Created under the leadership of the Executive Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee of the MassTLC Board of Trustees, this initiative serves as a way for the industry to come together and affect meaningful change on a scale greater than any one company could achieve on its own. More than 75 organizations have signed on so far.
As part of its participation in the Compact, HealthEdge has committed to change in three areas related to diversity, inclusion, and social justice:
- Introducing or expanding educational programs/opportunities for diversity, inclusion, racial inequality, unconscious bias, managing diverse teams, and creating a judgement-free culture
- Annual self-reporting of aggregate demographic data by June 2022
- Greater racial diversity in talent pipeline development programs (support for K-12, internships, etc.)

This experience and the subsequent discussions have been hard, but necessary,” said Laura Tomaino, Vice President, People and Culture. “At HealthEdge, we believe we have a responsibility to ensure our company is acting with compassion and fostering an enthusiasm for enriching everyone’s work experience.
