Implementation of eMedNY (Follow-Up Report)

Medicaid claims are processed and paid by an automated system that is operated by a contractor. In 2000, Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) was awarded a contract in which it was supposed to develop a new and enhanced automated claims processing system (eMedNY) as well as certain supporting automated systems. In audit 2005-R-3, we examined CSCís execution, and the Department of Healthís oversight, of this contract.

When we followed up on these matters with Department officials, we found that most of our recommendations had been implemented.
