Early intervention (EI) services can help children learn many key skills and catch up in their development, or prevent the occurrence of problems in the first place. Programs may be center-based, home-based, hospital-based, or a coordination of all the above.
CMA creates centralized, Web-based, state-of-the-art systems that electronically manage Early Intervention Program (EIP) administrative tasks and provide for information exchanges. Our systems are designed to support the EIP’s service delivery, financial, administration, and management activities at both the local and state levels.
These activities include initial intake, evaluation, eligibility determination, Individualized Family Service Plan development, service provision, and all financial aspects including insurance, claiming, payments, and Medicaid reimbursement.
CMA possesses a full understanding of all mandated requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and more.
While all states work hard to provide Early Intervention services to children with special needs, many states have fragmented and/or proprietary EI systems that may not identify these children early enough to make treatment effective.
Or, these systems fail to provide the coordination necessary to identify and attain the best services for the special-needs child.
Th systems may be unable to provide equal, quality, and consistent access to the available EI services, or do not have access to historical data for predictive analysis and reporting.
