Need Architects working on E & I.
• Work with the business units on significant projects to understand the systems that enable them to do their jobs, and understand their goals for something significant they want to change or add to offer value to our customers, and then translate that information into a solution.
• Participate in all the key meetings when the business owners are creating and prioritizing the Features (this is a specific deliverable when using the Agile/SAFe methodology for defining requirements) for a program or project.
• Work with Enterprise Architects who understand the highest level way the systems interact and use their advice and guidance when developing solution alternatives.
• When the business is looking for funding for a major program/project, the Enterprise Architect and Solution Architect must take the significant goals and changes proposed and provide estimates for these large pieces of work.
• That involves working with others in the IT/developer world to get some questions answered about systems the Solution Architect may not be familiar with and to get opinions on complexity that might be involved.
• The Solution Architect during these funding exercises must work well with the business to understand what they want - that involves digging into some things to clarify fuzziness of goals or needs or requirements, and it takes patience to deal with changing answers you get from various business people.
• Once the project is funded and the business has provided their Features for a project phase, the Solution Architect must work on alternatives/options for a solution, weigh the pros and cons, then document in diagrams and words the options and the suggested best option.
• Once the solution is selected, the Solution Architect must be able to help others at all levels understand the solution and make sure the design and development and testing eams know what their roles are in making the solution come to life.
• If the solution chosen has some significant pieces that are considered architecture focused (infrastructure or integration "pieces" that the developers will need in place before they can do their parts), the Solution Architect is expected to develop the Architectural Features using good Agile/SAFe practices.
The Agile/SAFe methodology and understanding of each of the roles and deliverables.
The Archimate Enterprise Architecture modeling methodology, so learning the high level of the types of diagrams and the types of objects is needed. All the diagrams produced are done using Archimate as the standard.

The ability to communicate very, very well - verbally well-spoken, and good written communicators.
Being on time for EVERY meeting is critical - Punctual.
Knowledge of the healthcare insurance business is very, very important. A lot of the projects are not just technology focused - you are constantly working with business people and their needs/goals, and thus you hear 100's of acronyms and concepts that you might not be familiar with.
You should have a very basic knowledge of how Payers work -- how they contract with providers and with employers, the general way claims are processed and benefits are paid, various types of health plans (HMO, PPO, shared-risk contracts with providers, tiered benefits, etc.).
