What our clients are saying
“…[T]he MSPIC provided effective oversight and ongoing support to both the incoming and outgoing CRC. A special project initiated for training was completed to ensure a successful CRC transition…. The contractor [NHA] developed and provided training materials, workflows, and on-site training for the incoming CRC. Based on the contractor’s systems and operational knowledge, the training provided to the CRC drastically helped reduce the time the CRC required for ramping up efforts to begin go-live operations. This, in turn, bought efficiencies to the COB&R program for the benefit of the CMS external stakeholders.”
