ANGARAI has been awarded with a contract for providing Project Management support services for Maryland Department of Health. ANGARAI shall develop the governance model including collaboration with an executive steering committee, the program management office, and collaboration with the business stakeholders to manage a large, distributed, and complex acquisition, implementation, and maintenance of a turnkey, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) electronic health records (EHRs) system and revenue-cycle management for twelve (12) Maryland Department of Health (MDH) healthcare facilities.
The system will replace the legacy Healthcare Management Information System (HMIS) used for census and billing, as well as a legacy pharmacy system and other clinical systems in use at certain facilities (as described herein). The new EHR system will support the admission/discharge/transfer (ADT), billing, collections, pharmacy, laboratory, order entry, clinical documentation, behavioral health, and long-term care (LTC) functions of the facilities.
ANGARAI will be supporting the agency’s implementation efforts across twelve (12) facilities throughout the State of Maryland. In addition to the Secure Evaluation and Therapeutic Treatment (SETT) program, these include five (5) psychiatric hospitals, two (2) Regional Institute for Children and Adolescent (RICA) facilities, two (2) developmental disabilities facilities, and two (2) chronic care hospitals. As part of this contract, ANGARAI will provide the leadership, expertise, methodologies and tools to the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) to support its goal of initiating and sustaining a governance model on the EHR procurement and implementation.
Venkat Subramanian, CEO of ANGARAI says “We are excited to be supporting the agency on this project. Maryland Department of Health works relentlessly towards making the lives of the Marylanders better and we are happy that we will be supporting them on this assignment on various scope including Program/ Project management, Transformational assignments and on various advisory scope related to this project. “
