At CompTIA’s Annual Member Meeting last month, Jared Linder, CIO of the State of Indiana’s Family and Social Services Administration, gave us an update on what’s happening in HHS IT in the state. Indiana is one of a small number of states that has recently launched a new Medicare Managed Information System (MMIS). The system took five years of concentrated effort, with Jared noting that “agile means it’s taking too long.” Jared walked the HSITAG members through the heavy lifting involved in launching this new system.

Main points that Jared emphasized:
