aHP-TNNIHP Enterprise Services has signed an $88 million contract with Tennessee to continue to provide information technology services to the state healthcare program.

The contract covers support to the Bureau of TennCare, which provides managed care services to 1.2 million state residents, HP said Tuesday.

HP will operate TennCare’s information systems and databases and upgrade the IT infrastructure, which includes computer networks designed to help identify medical codes and store information for business process outsourcing.

“The HP team is committed to support the state’s transformation while helping maintain a quality Medicaid program,” Arthur added.

HP has served as TennCare’s IT facilities manager for 18 years.
