Statewide computer overhaul looms for Medi-Cal
Capitol Weekly

California is in the midst of developing a complex new computer system called Health Enterprise to replace the decades-old hook-up that handles billings under Medi-Cal, the state-federal health care program for the poor, disabled and elderly that covers perhaps a fifth of the state’s population. In a letter to Gov. Brown and legislative leaders, State Auditor Elaine Howle said the new system will replace what is known as the Medicaid Management Information System, which has been in place since the 1970s.
