Like other organizations around the world, U.S. federal and state governments are trying to marry current technology with their massive amounts of Medicaid data to create up-to-date Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS). Governments face a problem in the Medicaid sector that has plagued several other government agencies: converting their legacy systems into state-of-the-art healthcare technology that benefits the state, providers, and Medicaid recipients. However, such legacy data conversions are not typical conversions; they require astute knowledge of the workings of the various subsystems of the MMIS and an ability to identify and correct for data errors from waste and abuse.

DataNet, with its long history in web-based application development and healthcare expertise, provides strong support to any state's MMIS fiscal agent. DataNet can help state or private clients with their Medicaid management in the following ways:

  • Providing resources to execute projects
  • Maintaining newly developed systems
  • Designing and developing components or applications to existing systems
  • Providing subject matter expertise in specific Medicaid issues

Overall, DataNet brings its high-touch, small business niche support to a large, complex system. With Medicaid experience at the state and federal levels, DataNet provides an edge that many businesses of similar size and scope do not have.
