Foxhole Technology and CSG Government Solutions Selected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to Advance the MITA Framework.
Fairfax, VA, November 16, 2010 – Foxhole Technology and CSG Government Solutions, national leaders in providing public sector strategy, quality management and systems modernization services, announced their team has been awarded a contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in Baltimore, MD to guide the further evolution of the Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA) Framework and associated artifacts.
Foxhole Technology and CSG bring years of business transformation, Medicaid expertise, and modeling proficiency to the CMS project. The scope of work includes an assessment of all available artifacts and development of new Business Process and Information Models for seven of the MITA defined Business Processes. Additionally, supporting technical functions will be identified to support the Medicaid migration to Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) for Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) modernization.
To address the difficulties facing Medicaid information systems, CMS implemented MITA, the Medicaid IT Architecture Initiative in 2002. MITA is aligned with the National Health Information Network (NHIN), and is intended to foster integrated business and information technology transformation and improve the administration of Medicaid agencies. MITA is a collaboration among CMS, other Federal agencies, States and other stakeholders, to provide guidance for States reviewing their Medicaid business priorities, planning future improvements and acquiring technical applications that meet their needs, and are consistent with current and anticipated industry IT standards.
Foxhole Technology CEO Wes Hester states, “Our experience with business transformation through technology for Federal agencies enables us to support the MITA Initiative and CMS with extensive modeling expertise, paving the way for improved program administration.” Andrea Danes, Director of CSG Government Solutions’ Health and Human Services practice adds, “CMS has set a clear course for states representing a shift toward more effient use of technology to support the broader Medicaid Program goals. We are excited about this opportunity to be part of the Foxhole Technology/CSG Team working alongside CMS and the states in this critical, mission essential effort.”
