WIC-MIS

Our public health portfolio has a specialized focus on the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). We count more than twenty-five WIC state agencies as our customers and are currently the premier WIC Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) service provider in the country with nine WIC agencies under contract for online WIC EBT services.

CMS is Kentucky's integrated health and WIC Management Information System (MIS). It was built from the ground up - as a system designed to integrate WIC functionality with the Department of Public Health - Clinic Management system. It was designed with the goal of simplifying data management for clinic staff, some of the benefits and features of our integrated WIC / MIS are outlined below:

  • Household Management – Create and manage patients and participants at a household level.
  • Clinic Management – Manage clinic data such as physical address, mailing address, forms ordering, and hours of operation
  • Inventory Management – A multi-purpose tool for managing inventory in the clinic, particularly useful for management of WIC formulas distributed directly from the clinic, formula returns, and donations.
  • Automatic Risk Assessment – Allows for definitions of business rules for providing recommendations to the WIC staff during nutritional risk assignment.
  • Income Eligibility Assessment – Captures income data to compare household income to Federal guidelines.
  • Food Management and Maintenance – Supports management of approved foods and creation of standard food packages.
  • Certification – Supports the capture of necessary data to support certification decisions made by CPA / WIC staff.
  • Dual Participation Monitoring – Uses business rules to identify potential dual participation across local agencies.
  • Growth Charts – Supports the display and printing of official CDC charts and WHO charts.

We are the current maintenance and enhancements provider for the SPIRIT State Agency Model (SAM) system. Through this agreement we provide the development needed to support the complete group of Spirit partners. This includes a significant number of state agencies and ITOs.

CDP has provided maintenance, enhancements and operations services to legacy MIS solutions providing system modifications that states requested to respond to regulatory and policy-driven changes.

Data Direct

The data warehouse originally provided as part of WIC Direct, ushers in a whole new way of looking at WIC data. It provides a way for agencies to monitor program integrity through data visualization and reporting features that are uniquely crafted with WIC in mind. In addition, it supplies agency staff with the ability to produce and share ad-hoc reports utililizing these same remarkable features.

  • Geo-Spatial - Where relevant, data is tied to a location context. Data direct provides the ability to review data in a visual manner on a map of the agency's service area. This feature enables some incredible things with the data. These reports are driven from existing data - such as vendor and household addresses. Maps revealing the data are capable of rendering data for zip code, area code, city, county, or the entire state.
  • Data Availability - Most data is imported daily from WIC Direct, so redemption data is typically visible in Data Direct the next day.
  • Ease of Use - Users simply drag and drop elements into the highly intutive report builder interface.
