Project Spotlight events shine the light on an ongoing or recently completed project and facilitate the sharing of lessons learned and best practices. NY State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) manages and oversees statewide services for over 130,000 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). With the objective of improving services and optimizing costs, OPWDD procured and implemented an Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology solution to centralize, automate and standardize health and care coordination. The design development and implementation (DDI) project involved the build and rollout of fourteen (14) functional modules over 3 phases, compliance with NIST and NYS information security policies and standards, and training of 18,000 end users across 6 regions and 1,125 locations.
