Lorrie Scardino, Senior Partner, Electronic Health Resources LLC
Ed Dolly, State HIT Coordinator, West Virginia Health and Human Resources
Paul Brannan, Director of IT Projects and Contract Systems Management for the Alabama Medicaid Agency
Abstract: As a framework for Medicaid business, information and technology, MITA is a comprehensive construct with worthwhile aspirations. However, applying MITA 3.0 inside the state Medicaid agency is a daunting proposition. The documentation is voluminous and difficult to put to practical use. The processes required to relate MITA 3.0 to the current and future state of the Medicaid agency, in each of its ongoing and planned initiatives, relies on experts. The more MITA 3.0 is pushed to the expert layer of the organization, the less likely it is to truly take hold.
