The company said new version addresses need of public-sector agencies for an integrated eligibility platform to deliver efficient benefit-eligibility application.
Additionally, updates Accenture software helps agencies control technology and management costs.
Version 7.1 features real-time data verification during online applications for Medicaid, including identity-proofing and reduces application processing times, benefitting citizens and case workers alike.
