“The goal of modernization is, in itself, transformative. MITA 3.0 moves states away from a model in which IT systems were highly customized to meet state transactional variations.,” according to *, Research Director at Gartner. “In its place is a new model in which many states can leverage commercially available IT system modules to enable better beneficiary access to healthcare,” added Cole*.
