Industry’s Most Widely Used Web-Based Long-Term Care Platform Will Support Medicaid-funded Waiver Services

RESTON, VA – SEPTEMEBER,10 2014 Mediware Information Systems, Inc., the industry’s leading provider of cloud-based long-term care software, announced today that the Developmental Services Unit of the Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD) has selected Harmony’s Medicaid Waivers Smart App, tailored specifically for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities programs, to support and automate their Medicaid-funded waiver services for persons with intellectual disabilities and related conditions.

Nevada Early Intervention Services and Developmental Services recently became a part of the newly formed Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD). Since the integration, ADSD has been working hard to ensure that Nevadans are provisioned with effective supports and services to meet the needs of individuals and families, helping them lead independent, meaningful and dignified lives.

The Developmental Services Unit has struggled with a manual, cumbersome and paper-based process to serve over 6,000 Nevadans. The Developmental Services Unit is looking to streamline its case management processes, decrease wait times for services as populations grow and enhance business practices with private and public partners. The selection and deployment of Mediware directly supports the ADSD team’s mission to promote community living for Nevadans with disabilities of all ages throughout their lives by providing a responsive and effective service system that acknowledges unique needs; promoting seamless service delivery including transitions across programs to obtain the full spectrum of care and better service coordination for participants with similar needs and modernizing the information technology platform to support increased fiscal accountability, reduce administrative support costs, strengthen cyber security, and better support a distributed workforce.
