Accenture To Update State Medicaid IT System, Build Online Portal

accenture_ExecutiveBizAccenture has won a contract to update information technology systems for Ohio’s Medicaid program and create online portals for customers to interact with agencies, Columbus Business First reports.

The company will create the portal, which Carrie Ghose writes is intended to give employers, service providers and consumers an avenue to interact with all agencies.

Gov. John Kasich’s budget proposal calls for $230 million for the project’s first two years of the project and the state will provide $26 million from its federal grant for IT modernization.

Ghose writes the contract also calls for replacement hardware and new software for determining eligibility and gathering data on enrollees.

State agencies will use the system to analyze spending, Ghose writes.
