The MITA Framework
New MITA standards provide a framework for improving business, information, and technology across the Medicaid enterprise.
Embracing A Common Standard
The Medicaid Information Technology Architecture, established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), provides a framework for states to align their Medicaid modernization efforts in order to transform program and technology domains. CSG Government Solutions assisted CMS in the development of the major new MITA release – the MITA Framework 3.0. The experts in CSG’s MITA Center of Excellence have unequalled knowledge of the enhanced scope of the MITA State Self-Assessment, the critical first step in Medicaid program modernization and Medicaid Management Information System planning.
Making the Most of Your MITA State Self-Assessment
MITA provides a framework to refine your enterprise vision, improve business functions and performance accountability, create interoperable systems and modular technologies, and enhance data security. The MITA SS-A establishes a comprehensive modernization strategy and describes a roadmap to realizing your vision. It provides a model and mechanisms to document current Medicaid business processes, operationalize your strategic vision, and pursue continuous improvement with an ever-evolving future in mind.
The MITA SS-A traces system capabilities back to required business functions, processes, and inter- and intra-agency interactions. MITA 3.0 also requires the integration of the Seven Conditions and Standards into the SS-A. The sheer size and complexity of your Medicaid enterprise makes the development of an accurate and complete MITA SS-A extremely challenging – especially while you’re also concentrating on your current operations. Engaging a partner to develop the SS-A helps you establish a solid foundation for program modernization and increases your ability to achieve timely results at the lowest cost.
Since 1997, CSG Government Solutions has been assisting state governments in crafting and implementing program modernization strategies based on best practices and practical experience. The experts in our healthcare Centers of Excellence have expertise in Medicaid modernization, MITA, standards compliance, health insurance exchange, integrated eligibility, and other important aspects of state Medicaid enterprises. The Centers of Excellence support our project teams in the field through our CSG REALizeSM collection of industry-leading Medicaid modernization methods, knowledge and tools, including the comprehensive CSG REALizeSM MITA SS-A Handbook. These speed the development of your SS-A and support the Transition Plan, Implementation Advanced Planning Document (IAPD), RFP, implementation, and CMS certification processes, while providing complete traceability across the entire modernization life cycle.
At CSG Government Solutions, we’re committed to helping you put innovative technology and proven processes to work where it matters most – delivering high-impact services to the people who depend on you.
