The Florida SS-A: Stepping Up to MITA 3.0


The MITA Framework 3.0 expands MITA enterprise architecture principles to foster business, information and technology transformation across state Medicaid enterprises and beyond. MITA 3.0 incorporates new guidance on legislative initiatives, coding changes, and transaction set mandates, including the ACA, ARRA, HITECH, 5010, NCPDP, HIPAA, and ICD-10.

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) is the first state to produce a MITA State Self-Assessment that encompasses the guidelines of MITA 3.0. Building on the results of CSG’s previous MITA v2.01 SS-A for AHCA, and applying our expertise as an author of MITA 3.0, we efficiently produced a complete high-quality MITA 3.0 SS-A. MITA 3.0 expands the MITA Business Architecture to cover ten business areas and 80 business processes. The MITA 3.0 Information Architecture includes enhanced health information data standards from organizations such as ONC, NwHIN, and NIEM. The MITA 3.0 Technical Architecture reflects technological advancements such as business rules engines, cloud computing concepts, and emerging standards. AHCA’s SS-A incorporates MITA 3.0 guidelines and tools, including checklists, scorecards, profiles and templates. The AHCA SS-A also addresses the Seven Conditions and Standards to support compliance with Enhanced Funding Requirements.

The Medicaid Information Technology Architecture, established by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), provides a framework for states to align their Medicaid modernization efforts in order to transform program and technology domains. To take MITA to the next level, CMS turned to CSG.

CSG knows MITA 3.0

CMS selected CSG to provide project management and subject matter expertise in the development of MITA Framework 3.0. CSG incorporated ACA, HITECH, CCIIO, and other regulations into MITA 3.0. Our team developed the MITA 3.0 Business, Information, and Technology Architecture updates, and enhanced the Concept of Operations, Maturity Model, and other key Framework artifacts.

The CSG team also provided MITA 3.0 training to federal, state, and industry groups including the CMS Central and Regional Offices, the National Medicaid EDI Healthcare (NMEH) Workgroup, the State Technical Advisory Group (S TAG), and the Technical Architecture Committee (TAC).

No one knows MITA 3.0 better than CSG.
