MITA Support

ReadyCert supports each of the six CMS Certification Milestones, beginning with the State Self- Assessment continuing through the On-Site Certification visit. ReadyCert captures the data and artifacts for each of the 10 Business Areas, and 80 Business Processes and make the data available to continued updating as solutions are replaced or improved.  

The design principles behind ReadyCert rely on following closely the contours of CMS’ MITA framework. Using the general spirit of the MITA framework, the technical design of ReadyCert was subservient to the business needs of the MMIS enterprise, and guided by businesses processes rather than technical prerogatives.

Users select and complete the MITA-defined entry, attached artifacts to define the current footprint (AS-IS) and the future blueprint (To-Be).  Gaps can be identified and tracked, yielding a Roadmap of projects to close the gap.

The MITA Assessment data can then be submitted to CMS with APD requests and used in RFPs and RTMS.  Uses for ReadyCert during implementation efforts range from JADS sessions reviews, documenting change requires, risks and issues at the Business Area or Business Process level, loading test scenarios, test scripts and outcomes. CMS Certification capabilities for the current certification process and the new Gate Review certification process.

ReadyCert MITA Assessment Features:

- Maximize SS-A data reuse eliminating redundant activities through the six CMS Certification lifecycle.
- Create scorecards and MECT Checklists needed for APDs, RFPs, gate reviews and certification.
- Submit CMS reports foreSS-A and annual reports simply by selecting the report and pushing the button.
- Research CMS SS-A, MITA and MECT requirements using the ReadyCert wiki.

ReadyCert will be updated with the new MECT requirements.  Whether you need the current MECT or the future CMS released MECT you are covered.

How does ReadyCert work?

ReadyCert uses a simple and industry standard interface to track all types of compliance, governance and risk data about your company or Enterprise in a secure, compliant and easy to reuse environment.

Agnostic Compliance

Using a flexible data model, the system is able to take and import the compliance work you've already done, including importing criteria, RTM data, evaluations and responses, assessment data and other data elements. Once you've processed the import, your team can analyze the data, instead of managing a spreadsheet, to produce deep insights into your Enterprise.

Your compliance information can be locked, and Independent reviewers such as IV&V or 3rd party auditors can be given special access to a certain compliance or assessment project your company is conducting. Their audit is captured using YOUR single source of truth, in addition to providing a secure environment for the delivery of any reports or documents they provide to you as a result of the audit.

Enterprise Reporting

Track the compliance of multiple projects with Enterprise Dashboards and Reports. This helps Enterprises tasked with multiple Certification and Assessment efforts track the progress and timeliness of multiple teams contributing multiple data sets of information to the compliance single source of truth. Reports and dashboards are refreshed on demand with up to date information.

Single Source of Truth

For every Subject Matter Expert, for every Account Manager and Contracts Administrator, and for every Developer and Tester tasked with contributing to the compliance narrative, ReadyCert gives them all a single source of truth to see the criteria, the guidance, the answers from the group, the attachments and the proof points provided by the team.

What can you use ReadyCert for?

With an agnostic approach to automating compliance work, ReadyCert adapts to your framework and project to provide analysts and managers with useful Compliance tools that help save time and effort, as well as an environment for your Compliance information that is constantly improving and steadily secure.

MMIS / MITA Assessments

ReadyCert was specially made to help State Medicaid Agencies and their vendor partners perform speedy assessments of their Enterprises and Vendors against the complex MITA 3.0 Framework. A MITA-aligned Medicaid Enterprise has 80 Business Processes spread across 10 Business Areas. Each of these has to be assessed each year by the State to fulfill Federal reporting expectations.

Tracking your Requirements Traceability Matrix with ReadyCert showcases the delivery of your module or solution inside the ReadyCert Compliance Data Model. This allows you to use the information you compile for solution fulfillment, including testing, security, disaster recovery and risk management artifacts, in downstream Compliance activities such as a federal Certification. Using ReadyCert for your RTM means you can recycle the work your team will already do or has already done to eliminate or automate mundane compliance tasks.

Security Assessments

Are you tasked with tracking first or third party security assessments across a large enterprise or multiple enterprises? Do you deal with multiple vendors, each with their own third party security assessment? Tracking assessment data, including customize-able scorecards, business area assessments, business process artifacts and customize-able assessment criteria across an enterprise provides deep insight into potential risk factors and pinpoints gaps along with areas for improvement.

A Smart Platform for SMEs

If you are a Subject Matter Expert performing your own assessments for multiple clients, you can use ReadyCert to make your work smarter and faster, in addition to providing a sustainable value-addition for your clients. ReadyCert tracks information by the project and has robust permissions to allow your clients access to their information, with beautiful dashboards and reports to enable your customers to consume their compliance evaluation information.
