Business Analyst Advanced
ONSITE, Montgomery, AL
Transitioning from a monolithic system with 14 different business functions to an interoperable, modular system based on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). This multi-year “Modularity” project will include working with multiple vendors and may include multiple project methodologies. The project must comply with the Federal standards and regulations such as: • Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA) • CMS Seven Conditions and Standards • Outcomes-Based Certification (OBC) • 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act) • Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health act (HITECH act) There are two vendors already in the program and there are three more contracts being actively worked on. The first Vendor to join the project was the Program Management Office (PMO) vendor who is responsible for managing the project, defining the AMA enterprise architecture, defining requirements and leading the organizational change management effort. The AMA is moving away from custom software development to procuring software that is configured to meet business needs. This will require the Business Analyst to be very comfortable understanding the contract, the business and the requirements. To support this effort, the AMA is seeking an experienced Business Analyst to be a member of the Medicaid Enterprise Systems (MES) team. Although the vendors will be responsible for developing most of the project documents, the Business Analyst will be responsible for reviewing and approving artifacts related to the program, project or software. The Business Analyst must also understand the contract and be able to verify the contract requirements are met. The Business Analyst will be working directly with the business areas to support them and ensure their understanding of the vendor proposed solutions. This position will work closely with the business areas, vendors and Project Management Office (PMO) vendor.
