State of the art systems integration for the Greater Good
Systems Integrator (SI) for the Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Business Information Systems (MACBIS), NewWave has directed the technology and data infrastructure to effectively manage and support the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services (CMCS) as the first-ever Systems Integrator in CMCS history.
Responding to COVID-19 with agile, Human Centered Design (HCD): NewWave’s MACBIS team has led development on a COVID-19 interactive mapping system to oversee and report on COVID-19 submissions by state, to serve CMS in its mission to provide more efficient, effective care with quality data reporting.
MACBIS-SI was formed to uniformly modernize and support the four pillars of CMCS (Centers for Medicaid and Chip Services): TMSIS, MACPro, MDP, MACFIN with a unified solution to collect, store, and process data.
Throughout the duration of the program, NewWave provided the technical architecture expertise, program and data management, security, infrastructure, and human-centered design support to streamline these systems to better serve CMS Medicaid and CHIP Program beneficiaries.
In response to COVID-19, NewWave’s MACBIS team stepped in to support the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation Center and meet the emerging need to capture and report on quality COVID-19 health data.
Bringing data-driven insights to life: As a Gold Microsoft Managed Partner, NewWave has a unique opportunity to leverage leading Microsoft technologies in our solution design. To support our COVID-19 response, NewWave leveraged the Power of BI to develop an interactive dashboard and visualize reported health data.
At NewWave, our focus on lean product development and Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) systems of thinking provided an opportunity to support the technical and business community at CMS by having a hands-on approach to reviewing how teams work together, leveraging agile software development to support CMS and make sure each team is in the best position possible to deliver effective products. Within MACBIS, NewWave played a critical role in supporting team development through our agile coaching practice.
As the systems integrator for MACBIS, NewWave has provided the technical solutions, program management expertise and agile human-centered design necessary to modernize and transform the way CMCS stores and processes data. At NewWave, we create solutions to help our teams build and execute better, with greater clarity.
