CSG Government Solutions Announces REALize-MITA(SM) Methodology for Medicaid Modernization

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - August 11, 2009) - CSG Government Solutions today announced the launch of REALize-MITA(SM), a breakthrough methodology to help state governments modernize Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS). REALize-MITA is the latest addition to CSG's REALize(SM) public sector systems development suite.

The Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA), established by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), defines a specific architectural direction for MMIS modernization and a framework for states to align their efforts with a MITA maturity model.

CSG Government Solutions, through its CSG Tech™ Research and Development unit, has now developed REALize-MITA, a powerful methodology to assist states through the full Medicaid Modernization Lifecycle. REALize-MITA utilizes straightforward tools and techniques to simplify the State Self-Assessment, and precisely support the Transition Plan, Implementation Advanced Planning Document, RFP, Implementation, and CMS Certification processes.

"REALize-MITA brings complete traceability through all lifecycle phases," says Andrea Danes, director of CSG's Medicaid Modernization practice. "The methodology's flexible, value-based models are enhanced and refined at each step of the process, providing a foundation that supports both traditional implementation methods as well as evolving model-driven development techniques."

CSG Government Solutions continues to increase its presence across the United States. Its clients include the state governments of Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, and Oklahoma; the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; and large municipal governments.
