The MMIS Maintenance & Operations (M&O) Unit supports DVHA’s priority to effectively manage IT projects by establishing consistent practices and standards to monitor MMIS modules once they are operational. The unit also supports DVHA’s priority to improve operational performance by providing compliance oversight of IT vendors, a consistent DVHA-wide approach to IT change management, and by promoting adherence to national correct coding standards.
Who We Serve
The MMIS M&O Unit supports DVHA leadership, other DVHA units whose work is supported by MMIS modules, other AHS departments that interact with the MMIS, and providers and beneficiaries who rely on the MMIS to process claims for Medicaid services.
How We Impact
The MMIS M&O Unit supports business units in managing MMIS operations, applies consistent methods and standards to IT vendor performance management, and ensures DVHA follows a consistent and transparent approach to IT change management that is aligned with state policies.
