Accenture Releases Advanced Software For U.S. State Medicaid Programs

Accenture (NYSE:ACN) has released the enhanced Accenture Public Health Platform (APHP) Version 3.1 software to help U.S. state health and human service agencies to adapt to evolving Medicaid requirements and healthcare reform goals.

APHP is an integrated, flexible software product that supports the state Medicaid enterprise in administering health benefits, improving administrative efficiency and flexibility in program management, speeding technology deployment and reducing total cost of ownership. It is the first software of its kind designed specifically to help support compliance with the Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA) standards set by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and required for states to secure federal funding.

“Our software platform will help states implement new Medicaid system functionality faster and at lower risk, reduce the burdens on agency staff, and streamline public health systems to enable more clinical data-sharing and interoperability,” said David McCurley, Accenture’s managing director for health and public sector software. “We are addressing strong needs in the market for a straightforward solution to the complex process of maintaining and upgrading Medicaid systems.”

APHP follows industry standards and a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) approach that is highly adaptable and scalable for evolving Medicaid program needs. A Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) framework provides a modular structure to enable integration across agencies. It also makes it easier for agencies to update Medicaid systems to meet new program requirements from policy or legislation, such as from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“ACA”).

Version 3.1 of APHP represents continued progress and investment by Accenture in providing the public service health market with software that offers broader functionality and greater flexibility in system configuration. APHP is one component of Accenture’s suite of health and public service software offerings for states, from Medicaid programs to integrated eligibility to insurance exchanges to clinical information exchanges and health analytics.
