Softheon is well-suited to share its thoughts and relevant expertise on the state of healthcare IT. Nearly every state is looking to procure software, components, and services to replace aging legacy MMIS. State Medicaid CIOs must make the state MITA 3.0 self-assessment process an earnest, ground-up review of operational effectiveness, to improve beneficiary service delivery and operational efficiency. Softheon's Medicaid Enterprise System Cloud (MESC) provides modular component/services blend approach, allowing states to focus on best of breed functionality - versus best of suite - to meet the "to be" business objectives defined in MITA 3.0, while meeting beneficiary needs in an era of changing demographics, growing caseloads, and expanding technology options.
