Description

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is helping state Medicaid Agencies identify innovative ways to modernize their mission critical Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS). In alignment with the Federal Source Code Policy, CMS is developing an Open Source Provider Screening Module (PSM) for the Modular MMIS architecture. This presentation describes: the background of the PSM project, including the decision to invest in Open Source development; the four-phased open source development approach including a Minimum Viable Pilot (MVP); three potential deployment approaches; and, the future vision for Open Source within the Medicaid Enterprise. This session is geared toward both state and industry stakeholders.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify the role that Open Source software can play in reducing cost and increasing flexibility in federal and state systems
