HP Gets $221 Mln, 5-year Medicaid Contract Extension From Wisconsin

HP (HPQ) Friday said it has signed a five-year Medicaid contract extension with Wisconsin Department of Health Services for $221 million. Under this, HP will help Wisconsin continue to meet federal Medicaid requirements while helping to reduce costs, improve service and maintain program stability. HP's responsibilities as Wisconsin's fiscal agent will be to provide all systems work and management of a decision support system and data warehouse. The company said that it already manages the state's immunization registry program and will manage a local call center, financial and federal reporting, and support for the state's drug rebate and estate recovery programs.

Further, HP will conduct a system-wide technology refresh with HP Superdome 2 servers, helping the agency to address its workload cost effectively.

The company stated, "The HP team will continue to provide Wisconsin with a flexible, reliable and cost- effective MMIS that's ready for the future and helps enable the state to maintain its quality Medicaid program." The HP interChange MMIS is a multipayer system that has been implemented in 13 states over the past decade.

Friday, the stock closed at $25.21 on the NYSE.
