Accenture (Dublin) and Plexis (Ashland, Ore.) launched a joint solution to optimize the efficiency, cost, and reliability of Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS). Building on a commercial off-the-shelf model, Accenture's Public Health Platform (APHP) introduces a new industry MMIS option to enable states to better adapt to the evolving Medicaid landscape.

Accenture Public Health Platform is a fully configurable, MMIS solution with the ability to quickly implement and adapt to evolving state Medicaid management needs. The platform leverages Accenture's robust system integration, project management and software development capabilities, combined with Plexis software to create a faster implementation model, with fewer costly change orders and reduced risk of a failed go-live.

APHP is modeled after Accenture's proven approach to deployment of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions in public service and commercial environments. Designed to enhance administrative efficiency, improve health outcomes and drive cost out of public service health programs, APHP is the foundation to a comprehensive approach to public service health program administration.
