Wyoming Selects MicroPact for MMIS Care/Case Management Module
HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 7, 2018--MicroPact today announced that its entellitrak ® case management platform has been selected by Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) as the Care/Case Management System (CCMS) module for its Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS) modernization project. Known as WINGS (for Wyoming Integrated Next Generation System), the project spans an extensive array of systems, service components, and modules that will replace the state’s aging and siloed MMIS infrastructure. Consistent with Wyoming’s pioneering MMIS-as-a-service approach, the Care/Case Management module will be hosted by MicroPact.
The WINGS program is managed by the WDH, Division of Healthcare Financing, which brings Wyoming’s public healthcare programs together under one umbrella to better serve eligible citizens. By taking a modular approach to MMIS modernization, Wyoming will utilize cutting-edge technologies in an effort to make use of up to 90% federal financial participation funding for design, development, and deployment of each module – ensuring that Wyoming’s money stretches as far as it can.
The entellitrak-based CCMS will manage functions relating to Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waiver programs. Under HCBS waivers, states can provide services to eligible beneficiaries who prefer to receive long-term care services and supports in their home or community.
“Wyoming is being really smart in its hybrid approach to the modernization and hosting of its Medicaid systems,” said Stephanie Kuhnel, VP of MicroPact’s Health, Human Services, and Benefits team. “The updated rules and incentives from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) incentivize states to seek out IT solutions like entellitrak that are more flexible, interoperable, and can integrate easily with other Medicaid systems – Wyoming is doing a great job in making the most of it.”
The entellitrak-based CCMS will develop and monitor plans of care, capture and monitor assessments, screenings, treatment plans, and authorize services, sending prior authorizations to the Benefit Management System. On the provider side the case management system will facilitate the comprehensive management of case related providers, their licensure, certification, recertification, sanctions, criminal background, and relevant provider-related reporting and analytics.

Today MicroPact solutions serve 98% of U.S. states, 97% of federal agencies with 500 or more employees, and enjoy a 97% annual renewal rate.
