HP Wins $221M Contract Extension for Wisconsin Health Services; Susan Arthur Comments

HPLogo1 EbizHewlett Packard’s enterprise services segment has won a $221 million contract to continue serving as fiscal agent for Wisconsin’s Health Services Department with the goal of helping that agency meet federal healthcare requirements.

HP will manage a decision support system, a data warehouse for analyzing large volumes of Medicaid data, immunization registry program, a call center, financial and federal reporting and drug rebate and estate recovery programs, HP said Monday.

HP intends for the management services to help Wisconsin fulfill Medicaid requirements, reduce costs and sustain programs for healthcare providers and beneficiaries.

Susan Arthur, vice president of U.S. Health and Life Sciences at HP Enterprise Services, said the company will provide a maintenance management information system for the state government to maintain its Medicaid program.

“Preparing for federal- and state-driven program changes requires process and system modifications while maintaining smooth, uninterrupted interaction with providers and beneficiaries,” she added.

HP has been Wisconsin’s fiscal agent for 36 years and the company will also upgrade the Health Services Department’s servers as part of the five-year contract.

Wisconsin’s interChange system handles nearly 41 million claims and disburses more than $4.3 billion annually.
