Better IT. Better Government.

We have acquired Cognosante’s consulting practice, deepening our capabilities in managing the modernization of state health and human services IT systems. This acquisition adds more than 250 HHS consulting experts supporting IT transformations in more than 20 states.


HHS IT Consulting Expertise for State Agencies

State Health and Human Service agencies can no longer wait to implement and modernize information technologies that support rapidly changing program needs and move away from legacy, stove-piped systems supporting single programs. Having acquired Cognosante’s consulting services, we are uniquely qualified to help you modernize, plan, procure and implement effective HHS and Medicaid information technology solutions. Together, we can address changing program policy and populations, as well as state and federal mandates.

With nearly three decades of experience working with 48 states and the federal government, we help develop, manage and execute large, complex health information technology implementations. We stand committed to completing tasks on schedule, on budget and in compliance with state and federal mandates. Inspired by the mission of HHS programs to support the health and independence of citizens, we believe that successful IT projects are critical to mission success. Let’s start the conversation.

Identify potential problems before they develop and initiate appropriate mitigation strategies or corrective actions


Complete project activities on schedule and within budget, while adhering to project requirements


Communicate accurately and in a timely manner to project participants and stakeholders throughout the project lifecycle
