State health and human services agencies are moving away from monolithic Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS) toward modular, flexible and integrated technology and services.
Agency leaders are seeing that integrated health and social assistance services improve the delivery of high-quality care and in turn outcomes for patients, providers, and other federal, state and local Medicaid stakeholders. Effective technology integration is crucial to this.
So how state agencies can achieve core missions and goals like:
- Improved healthcare access and outcomes
- Easier health self-direction and independence
- Sound stewardship of limited financial resources
