First Report Manged Care,, is another online and print publication owned and operated by HMP Communications. According to their website, "The editorial mission is focused on delivering the most comprehensive late-breaking information that affects managed market providers with topics that include clinical, legislative, and economic developments." The site mainly deals with manage care and the markets surrounding managed care. Our job was to upgrade the site from Drupal 5 to Drupal 6 as Drupal 7 was soon to be coming out of beta at the time. This meant that their whole network of Drupal 5 sites would no longer be supported, and it was time to upgrade to Drupal 6.

This site was a Drupal development project, as well as a Drupal theming project. This Drupal site migration and Drupal theming was part of a larger project that consisted of migrating 12 sites from Drupal 5 to Drupal 6. Six of those sites were done by Arbor Web Development, while the other six were handled by their internal development staff. Arbor Web Development provided Drupal project management services on the whole project including technical support, consultation, and training to their in-house staff in regards to the server infrastructure used, advanced Drupal migration techniques, and Git version control.
