RKV Technologies is pleased to be continuing our relationship with the Missouri Department of Social Services Division of Family Services and IBM to test the Missouri Enrollment and Determination Eligibility System (MEDES). RKV has been an important part of the testing efforts with members of the RKV team being involved in MEDES testing efforts for the last 2 years. Currently, 50% of the testing team is staffed with RKV personnel, including the testing leadership role. The team uses State of Missouri and IBM-approved testing methodologies to ensure quality assurance of the MEDES software.

The test team is responsible for testing components such as Presumptive Eligibility, Show-Me Healthy Babies, Transitional Medicaid, Prior Quarter, and Annual Renewals. RKV’s Testing Lead works closely with the State and daily monitors the testing activities, makes sure that the team is following the approved testing methodology, makes assignments to both contract and State staff, meets daily with the State’s Project Director for MEDES, and provides status to the Project Management Team.

Currently, the MEDES software uses the CURAM platform and the team is adding more functionality with Release 2.2 which is planned for production sometime in early 2018.
