ROCKVILLE, Md., March 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CNSI, a leading business solutions provider with vast experience developing and delivering innovative healthcare management technology solutions, announced today that it has been selected by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to design and implement a new Provider Management and Enrollment System (PMES) for the state's Medicaid program. Work on the four year contract, worth more than $28 million, will begin immediately.
CNSI's PMES solution will modernize, streamline, and advance the state's existing Medicaid provider management platform in accordance with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA) framework. When complete, the solution will enable Texas to operate, manage, control, and configure provider management, including functionality for online enrollment or reenrollment through one centralized portal. CNSI's healthcare platform is regarded as the most advanced Medicaid platform on the market supporting Medicaid modernization efforts across seven States.
"Our mission, in the simplest terms, is to improve care delivery and reduce costs for Medicaid beneficiaries in Texas," said CNSI CEO, Todd Stottlemyer. "By modernizing one of the most fundamental aspects of the Medicaid system – the provider enrollment process – we will lift significant administrative burdens from the state's physicians, whose time and attention is so crucial to the successful delivery of care. Doctors, patients, and even taxpayers, will all benefit."
To facilitate the effort, CNSI has opened an office in Austin dedicated to the PMES project will work. The new location augments CNSI's presence in Texas, which began last year with work on the Department of Veteran Affairs Financial Services Center, also based in Austin, Texas. CNSI also supports local corporate social responsibility initiatives, including Learning Undefeated's MdBioLab - Texas, a mobile science lab that brings STEM learning to hurricane-affected school districts across Texas.
"We are thrilled to become an even bigger part of the Texas community," added Stottlemyer. "At CNSI, we take our responsibility as a good corporate citizen very seriously. In the coming weeks and months, we'll be looking for more local initiatives and partnerships to engage with as our ties to Texas."
