CSG helps states improve the quality and efficiency of their healthcare systems through innovative State Medicaid HIT planning.
Managing A Paradigm Shift
Medicaid, public health, human services, and other public healthcare organizations are facing unprecedented challenges. State health and benefit management systems are under pressure to expand services against the backdrop of a protracted economic downturn. New federal laws, policies and mandates are causing massive changes to regulations, standards, processes and systems. The rapidly evolving healthcare landscape has made it difficult for agencies to track, understand and implement new requirements while simultaneously meeting their operational goals.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) have directed major investments into the healthcare industry. These federal incentives have aggressive timeframes for compliance and bring with them increased focus on timeliness, accountability and measurable results associated with modernization and compliance.
Focused strategic planning is the key to navigating the new mandates and capturing new funding sources without compromising current initiatives.
In CSG Tech, our premier Research and Development group, we continuously expand and enhance our CSG REALizeSM library of high-value methods, artifacts, automated tools, project guides and domain knowledge to deliver superior results, on time and on budget. Within our network of Centers of Excellence, CSG Tech combines the CSG REALizeSM framework, best practices and lessons learned with our proprietary HIE Maturity Model to bring best-in-breed approaches to your strategic planning effort.
You can rely on CSG to provide the expertise and tools you need to develop a State Medicaid HIT Plan that fully addresses your particular technical and operational objectives. Using the CSG REALizeSM roadmap-based approach and HIE Maturity Model, we efficiently evaluate the “As-Is” environment and point you to the specific steps to achieve the “To-Be” state. We can assist you in developing a comprehensive Implementation Advance Planning Document (IAPD) taking into account the needs of all healthcare stakeholders, and aligning with federal Medicaid standards and timeframes.
Let CSG help you meet the unprecedented challenges of today’s healthcare environment.
