Massachusetts TBI

Massachusetts TBI

Massachusetts TBI

Centers:

The Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts contracted with MPHI to develop a web-based course on brain injury in adults. The course includes six modules: Traumatic Brain Injury 101, Screening and Resources, Mental Health, Psychopharmacology, Alcohol & Drug Use and Traumatic Brain Injury, and Homelessness. The application allows for a short quiz and evaluation and are administered at the end of the lesson to test knowledge and gather feedback. In addition, all modules are eligible for Continuing Education credits. MPHI worked closely with the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission to design and build the web application. The goal was to make the content, including multi-media content, easily readable. The application is designed so that content and quiz questions are easily editable, which will allow for decreased maintenance costs in the future. MPHI and our partners worked together using an agile methodology, and the project was completed on-time and on-budget.

Michigan Drug Assistance Program On-line Application (MIDAP)

Centers:

MPHI and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) launched the electronic application process for the Michigan Drug Assistance Program (MIDAP) in April 2017. This program assists with costs for HIV-specific related medicines and vaccines. Individuals are eligible for the program when they provide:
  1. Documentation of HIV disease,
  2. Proof of residency in the state of Michigan,
  3. Proof of gross income, which cannot exceed 500% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL); FPL guidelines are in effect when MIDAP receives the completed application, and
  4. In some cases, you must have applied for public assistance (Medicaid and/or Adult Benefits Waiver program) with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) within the past 90 days and have a pending, denial, or spend-down status.
MPHI worked with MDHHS to design, build, and test the application.  Existing business processes were used, and some business processes were improved during the course of designing the application.  The application is integrated with the State of Michigan single sign-on process, and is hosted at the State of Michigan.  Different permission levels are built into the application to protect the privacy of the data.  MPHI and MDHHS continue to work collaboratively to support and enhance the application, and respond to feedback from users and applicants.

This project provides information, education, technical assistance, and peer support to families of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and the professionals who serve them. MI F2F has three primary goals: 1) promote optimal health for CYSHCN in Michigan, 2) ensure that families of CYSHCN will partner in decision-making at all levels, and 3) facilitate access to effective health delivery systems by meeting the health information and support needs of CYSHCN and their families. The project also focuses on the number of CYSHCN and families, particularly from under-represented and diverse communities, who are provided skill development opportunities, so they can partner at all levels of decision-making.
