DEPARTMENT OF INTELLECTUAL & DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES Project Kickoff Meeting East Regional Office March 7 th, 2013
DEPARTMENT OF INTELLECTUAL & DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES 2 What is Project Titan? For many years DIDD has struggled to upgrade its existing computer information systems. These systems are used to track: Recipient Demographic Data, Service Planning and Case Management Information, Service Authorization and Billing Information, Incident and Investigation Data Most of these systems were developed in an outdated software platform, known as FoxPro, and in many cases were meant to be short-term solutions that became permanent. Project Titan is an effort to replace DIDD’s current computer information systems with a single integrated solution.
DEPARTMENT OF INTELLECTUAL & DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES 3 Project Goals & Objectives In the initial phase of Project Titan, DIDD plans to achieve two main objectives: 1)Establish the necessary infrastructure and common framework needed to support a single integrated application system; and 2)Deploy the first modules of the new application, which will: Establish an electronic Individual Support Plan (ISP) Replace DIDD’s current financial applications (CS Tracking, Provider Claims Processing, and PTABS) Replace DIDD’s Incident & Investigations system DIDD will be able to leverage this framework in the future to address changing business needs and to improve business processes.
