Lessons learned from Project 1 are being incorporated in Project 2&6. These will help the project team avoid the issues encountered during Project 1, and assure that all project phases progress more smoothly. Lessons learned sessions are conducted with NC FAST and county staff. Process improvement is ongoing and critical to NC FASTís success.
Pilot production began in July 2013. All counties completed Soft Launch Stage 1 as of September 30. Wave 2 training for Pilot Counties is scheduled for November. Training for all other counties will occur between January and March 2014. Hard Launch is planned for January-March 2014, with full implementation to all 100 counties complete by March 2014.
Note: Scope Part 1 was original Project 2, to include screening and intake for EIS-related applications for Work First, Medicaid, Refugee Assistance and Special Assistance. However, due to the federal mandate for health care reform, we were required to also include Scope Part 2, the eligibility determination for EIS, which was original Project 6, a large and separate project scheduled for a later date that had to be instead be implemented sooner, to comply with the federal date of October 1. Hence the Project name, 2&6.
