NASPO ValuePoint Poised to Meet Technology Demand with Updated Medicaid Management Information System Provider Services Module Contract
HELENA, Mont., Dec. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- NASPO ValuePoint is announcing the Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) – Provider Services Module nationwide contract. This contract offers a Provider Services module that is part of the overall initiative for individual states to replace aging legacy components of their Medicaid enterprise. The Provider Services module procurement is a multi-state cooperative procurement initiative through NASPO ValuePoint that provides an alternative to a long and complex solicitation process at the State level. Awarded vendors offer some of the best solutions for Provider Services available in the market today. The cooperative procurement process was also a boon to interested vendors as the CMS approved Master Agreements allow the six qualified contractors to market their product and negotiate Participating Addendums with individual participating states.
"The NASPO ValuePoint Provider Services procurement is a true innovation for the acquisition of Medicaid modular system components," said Gene Hermanson, Medicaid Systems Operations Manager, Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services. "This initiative was the result of a multi-state collaboration between six states to procure federally compliant Provider Services solutions to meet state specific needs. In addition to reduced procurement timelines, we expect many states to benefit from the proposed solutions that support key principles of modularity such as the acquisition of loosely coupled modules with open, documented interface and discrete, scalable, reusable components that are interoperable within the modular enterprise."
