IBM Corp. had announced new contracts with health and human services agencies in South Carolina and Arkansas to modernize their information systems and take advantage of new data analytics capabilities.

South Carolina’s Medicaid program will use the vendor’s Curam suite of products to build an eligibility determination and management system, migrating from a largely paper-based process. Clemson University, an existing partner of the agency, will host the eligibility system.

The Arkansas Department of Human Services will consolidate more than 30 disparate information systems serving a variety of programs into a scalable and integrated platform. It will support Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the State Children’s Health Insurance Program and numerous social programs across multiple agencies.

The new platform in Arkansas, also from the Curam suite, will give beneficiaries a single point of access to determine their benefits eligibility for a variety of programs, and enable changes in circumstances to be recorded once and shared with all benefit programs they participate in.
