NH Posts RFP to Transform System

The State of New Hampshire’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has issued an RFP for their “Service Delivery Transformation-Data Repository Project”. The state is faced with the fact that a number of databases within DHHS have little to no capacity to integrate financial analysis data across the Department.

The problem is that although the state’s Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) makes it possible to track, monitor, and analyze medical costs and utilization data, the state has little or no ability to completely track data in the area of human services. Medicaid costs analysis can be conducted only after tedious and time consuming data mining is done from at least four data sources within a number of Departmental programs.

DHHS is unable to obtain human services data on factors such as, vendor outcomes, population/client utilization of vendor services, similar or complimentary services across programs, or information to determine the return on investment for primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention services.

The Department wants to see the design of a new service delivery model of care that bridges client services gaps and fully integrates its non-Medicaid specific programs and services that lie within the human service area.

The project will be conducted in cooperation with the New Hampshire Department of Information Technology (DoIT) since DoIT coordinates statewide information technology activities.

The contract will be a firm fixed price not to exceed $1,000,000. The (RFP 2013-005) was issued March 8, 2012, proposals are due April 19, 2012, and there will be a vendor teleconference on March 26th.
