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 re-enrollment 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.”
