OCG has over fifteen years of experience in the healthcare and public health industries. We have designed and constructed multiple web-based applications for epidemiologists, used for the capture, investigation and reporting of contagious diseases.

OCG managed the acquisition, integration and deployment of a Medicaid claims processing and payment systems at the State of Washington Department of Social and Health Services.

We provide services to the hospital market in the field of Health Information Exchange (HIE) and HL7 integration as well as information extraction and reporting. OCG also has deep domain knowledge in patient medication administration and hospital pharmacy applications.

WA State Department of Social & Health Services & Health Care Authority

OCG provided UAT Management and Technical Management services to the ProviderOne Phase II project for the WA State Health Care Authority and DSHS. Phase II added payment of social services providers to the state's Medicaid system, ProviderOne.

OCG also provided UAT Management services to the state's successful implementation if ICD10 procedure and diagnostic codes, making Washington State one of the smoothest transitions from ICD9 in the nation.

OCG provided project management, business design and vendor management for the Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) Re-Procurement project (ProviderOne). The MMIS is one of the largest transaction and decision support systems in the State. This $137 Million project replaced the aging legacy MMIS and other ancillary systems within the department as well as implemented new capabilities that resulted in the new MMIS being the primary enterprise system for paying providers of services to DSHS clients. The new system impacts every administration within DSHS.

OCG also provided project management, business design and vendor management for the MMIS HIPAA project. This was a project to upgrade the Medicaid Management Information System to be compliant with the then new HIPAA Transaction and Code Set Rules. The project developed front-end and middleware functionality to allow the MMIS system to receive, process and transmit HIPAA compliant transactions.

WA State Department of Health

OCG created the PHIMS application for the State of Washington Department of Health - a web-based application for the capture and reporting of incidents of contagious diseases. The application is a multi-tiered architecture using Microsoft tools, services and data stores. This object-oriented, component based applications runs in an intranet environment. Technology: ASP, COM+, XML, VB, Javascript and SQL Server.


OCG consultants were principal designers and developers of a revolutionary automated hospital pharmacy system, which dispenses true unit dose medications into secure mobile carts - from which medications are removed and administered to patients. The commercial product prototype, developed by Seattle-based NextRx, included a robust object-oriented architecture.

The NextCentral System controlled the automated dispensing of true unit dose medications in the hospital pharmacy into secure carts. The system interfaced directly into hospital’s patient record systems for up to the minute patient assignment and prescription orders.

The NextPatient System consisted of mobile secure carts deployed to the hospital wards and hand-held devices which allowed nurses to retrieve medications, verify the patients and meds via bar code scanning, and record medication administration.

The system includes operator touch screens, hand-held personal PCs with built-in scanners, wireless mobile laptops, workstations and multiple servers. OCG's senior consultants played pivotal roles in the development of the architecture, and designed 100% of the interfaces for the commercial product. Technology: J2EE, Java Swing, HTML, DHTML, XML, XSLT, Oracle.
