Company’s solution to help the state coordinate medical services while empowering patients to make more informed healthcare decisions
Contract enables New Hampshire to comply with a new federal regulation on Interoperability and Patient Access
FLORHAM PARK, N.J., June 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Conduent Incorporated (Nasdaq: CNDT), a business process services and solutions company, today announced a contract from the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (NH DHHS) to provide Medicaid beneficiaries in the state with improved, secure access to their personal health information, enabling them to make more informed healthcare decisions. The company’s solution will improve how information is exchanged between payers, providers and patients, as well as support efficient care coordination.
Through a web portal developed by Conduent, beneficiaries will have the ability to locate healthcare and pharmacy providers in their network, as well as seamlessly and securely review their information and share it with various providers. The contract also brings New Hampshire into compliance with the Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule, a federal regulation put into effect by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The rule, finalized in 2020, is expected to have a major impact nationally on the future of healthcare, making health information more easily available to patients and allowing them to safely share their data.
The contract marks an expansion of Conduent’s support for NH DHHS, a client since 2013. The company currently provides the department with claims processing and provider services for New Hampshire’s Medicaid program, as well as management of its Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS), which processes more than 15 million claims annually.
