Three Project Managers are needed to work with ITS and OPWDD staff to define detailed business requirements and specifications for OPWDD's business transformation.
The New York State Office for People With Developmental Disabilities, (OPWDD), in consultation with the New York State Department of Health (DOH) and federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is in the process of designing and implementing significant changes to the OPWDD service system through the development of a new "People First" waiver. As OPWDD and its stakeholders work together to develop the People First Waiver, they will examine specialized managed care models that integrate acute medical and long-term care services to achieve improved outcomes and quality of care, while lowering costs. Implementation of the People First Waiver will require major information technology supports which will result in dramatic changes to the IT infrastructure. The changes affecting the IT infrastructure will include creating a managed care delivery system; development of more flexible, person-centered, community-based supports and services; coordination of comprehensive services; and improved quality measurement and transparency, in order to facilitate enhanced quality of life for the individuals served by OPWDD.
