  • Part of the team that was involved in the design, development, testing and implementation of some the new Diagnosis Related Group (DRG) pricing methodology requirements to the CAMMIS system. Changes to the system included a provision to allow retroactive change to provider rates for past effective date ranges.

  • Part of the team that was involved in the design, development and testing of the project to expand Provider Type/Categories of Service as well as Procedure Codes/Categories of Service Tables of the CAMMIS system. Categories of service for these tables had a maximum of 22 services only. Since provider types and procedure codes now have more than 22 categories of service (COS) associated with them, expansion of these tables to allow up to a maximum of 2,178 COS per provider type or procedure code was done. All programs in the system were changed to reflect this new requirement.
