WORKERS IN GHANA PROCESS U.S. HEALTH INSURANCE DATA.
Workers in Ghana process U.S. health insurance data at an office in the
capital Accra. The operators process huge volumes of U.S. medical
insurance documents every day, but their plush air-conditioned office
in West Africa is a long way from the suburban Americans whose claims
they handle. The operation in Ghana's capital Accra is seen as a role
model as the country once known as the Gold Coast rise to promote
hi-tech development and reduce its dependence on minerals and farming.
