Modular and interoperable Medicaid IT systems help to ensure that states address the changing needs of the beneficiaries, stay in compliance with regulations, and result in reducing program costs per beneficiary. The Poplin project is a Medicaid reference architecture being developed, under the MITA Governance Board and sponsored by CMS, by key states, vendors, and other stakeholders. Poplin defines a standard, extensible set of business processes, object definitions, and application programming interfaces (APIs) for State Medicaid Agencies. Poplin provides technical specifications to help ensure interoperability and reusability of modules and information for multi-organization, multi-vendor, and multi-technology state Medicaid systems. This presentation will discuss the goals, principles, and guiding practices for a nationwide Poplin architecture for Medicaid. Guiding practices include four components of service definition, reference implementations for key shared services, and service definitions for key Medicaid functional areas.
