GI's roots go back to 1992 when it was known as Med-Link Technologies, Inc. Med-Link was a pioneer is creating a completely web enabled platform for healthcare transaction processing. This was the Northeast Clearing House for Healthcare claims processing. Med-Link also had an offshore development facility that supported the platform's development, enhancement and maintenance. It also provided business process services to various clients.
Offshore processing and development was an innovative, forward looking initiative well ahead of the industry in 1992. By 1997, the company had grown to processing 2 million EDI transactions per month. There were over 10,000 providers and 120 payers in the healthcare domain. Nobody in the industry matched this achievement at that time.
Med-Link (USA), the U.S. operations of the company was acquired by SPS (a subsidiary of Dean Witter) and then by Emdeon, (the former WebMD) in 1999. During this transition the Indian operation supported the new company by providing solutions in the application lifecycle and business process areas. IGI was formed as a new corporation registered in New Jersey to allow the principals to continue operations and expand the business in the United States. The arrangement had a non-compete clause that refrained IGI from re-entering the Healthcare domain.
Thereafter, IGI developed various solutions and product offering for a wide range of industries such as Financial, Insurance, Management Consulting firms, and others. These solutions covered vertical as well as horizontal segments that allowed for the retention of clients over the years.
