Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that it has signed an agreement with Cerner Corporation (NASDAQ: CERN), a global health care technology company, to help state health departments more efficiently complete federally mandated Medicaid reporting with Tyler's Entellitrak® platform.
Tyler and Cerner have the opportunity to provide a solution that helps state health departments and agencies streamline manual reporting and secure critical federal funding through their states' Medicaid systems. Cerner's HealtheIntent® population health platform already helps manage Medicaid programs and, with the addition of Tyler's comprehensive reporting platform Entellitrak, current and future clients may be supported to solve data management and reporting challenges for these statewide programs.
"Working with Tyler, Cerner can better support our state health department and agency clients, bringing a number of efficiencies to their Medicaid reporting processes," said Johnny Kaye, vice president of State Government, Cerner. "By automating a largely manual and time-intensive process, together we have the opportunity to help clients be more efficient and report accurate information to improve patient outcomes."
Tyler's Entellitrak platform is able to consolidate patient data from Cerner and process the information for Medicaid reporting. The Federal Report Data Staging System within Entellitrak can replace the hundreds of manual worksheets state health departments use today and combine that information to support several Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reports. It can also support improved accuracy by removing the potential for user error, as well as reduce the time it takes for staff to prepare the reports.
"We're pleased to work with Cerner on this initiative to help agencies be more efficient and effective," said Kris Collo, president of Tyler's Federal Division. "The Federal Report Data Staging System not only improves accuracy and integrity of reporting but also saves time and resources for everyone involved."
