HP Enterprise Services (Palo Alto, Calif.) today announced the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) has extended its long-time service agreement with the company.

The $281 million, seven-year contract, which contains a one-year renewal option, adds new information technology services to help prepare the state for healthcare reform and make services more accessible to SoonerCare (Oklahoma Medicaid) members.

As Oklahoma’s fiscal agent since 2002, HP will continue providing systems support and business process outsourcing services for its Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS). The agreement adds applications development services to enhance OHCA’s systems. Improvements include a web-based member portal allowing Oklahomans to apply for and track benefits online as well as an upgrade to OHCA’s provider portal. HP also will assist the state in its efforts to add new International Classification of Diseases – 10th Revision (ICD-10) medical coding features and adhere to the federal HIPAA 5010 requirements.
