|The Illinois Department on Aging (IDoA) intends to enter into a sole economically feasible source contract with Shawnee Health Service and Development Corporation for upgrading and maintaining the IDoA Case Management Information System (CMIS) software. |
CMIS allows for 58 Care Coordination Unit Support for Comprehensive Care Coordination Services and the Community Care Program. Without this service, the Department on Aging and Care Coordination Units would not be able to have accurate and up-to-date information regarding program and service participants. The CMIS system is vital to manage and maintain the quality of the program.
The Case Management component of the CMIS continues to provide agencies with a mechanism to distribute caseloads, track upcoming and outstanding activities, and monitor the timely completion of these activities. The system authorizes assessment and screening activities based on state requirements. Case Management enables agencies to measure processes in order to assure compliance and identify areas for quality improvement. Case Management activities are managed by maintaining care plans, inputting activities, and producing reports that provide Care Coordinators with a reminder of their clients’ contact needs in a given month.
Standard reports provide the Care Coordinator Supervisors, agency, and IDoA with data needed to monitor and evaluate Care Coordinators’ activities, Determination of Need scoring, and care plan development/utilization. These reports include current month assessment status, upcoming assessments, case management contact reports, and the ability to compare Care Coordinators’ activities across the agency and the state.
A hearing is scheduled for 2:00 PM on June 3, 2015 at the Stratton Office Building, 401 S. Spring St., Room 511, Springfield, IL 62706 and video conference at the Thompson Center, 100 W.
