PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 1, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Today CIGNA has launched a complete redesign of its flagship public Website, http://www.cigna.com/. The revamped site is designed to be easier for users to navigate and offers users extensive health information and online resources in a newly added Health & Money section.
"This redesign represents more than a decade's experience of how users interact with our Website, extensive "voice of the consumer" research, and 16 months of development work, to deliver a site designed so that people can quickly and easily obtain the information they want and need," said Jeffrey Wyne, vice president of marketing, CIGNA HealthCare.
CIGNA.com offers new content encompassing the company's HealthCare, Group and International businesses. A key enhancement is the creation of a Health & Money section that provides health information and decision support tools to help users and their families stay healthy, cope with sudden illness or a chronic condition and effectively engage in their health care throughout their various stages of life. Features of CIGNA.com's new Health & Money section include:
-- In-depth articles about managing chronic conditions, staying healthy, and handling unexpected health events; -- Information for health care financial planning; -- Interactive tools to help estimate health risk factors, identify action steps to improve health, and calculate health savings account and flexible spending account contributions.
The re-launch of CIGNA.com is the first of several online enhancements CIGNA HealthCare consumers and providers may look forward to in 2007. The CIGNA member personal Web portal http://www.mycigna.com/ will be redesigned and enhanced for launch during the first quarter of 2007. The redesigned CIGNA for Health Care Professionals portal, http://www.cignaforhcp.com/, is also scheduled to launch later in 2007.
