Harish Nanda, Executive Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, CNSI

Harish Nanda leads the team that designed and implemented the first completely cloud-based Medicaid Management Information System in the U.S.

CNSI was also the first company to migrate a state MMIS to the cloud successfully. In 2020, CNSI’s configurable evoBrixX platform allowed state clients to quickly use new COVID-19 testing codes, getting critical funds to pandemic health care providers.

Nanda’s team also earned the top score in 2020’s National Association of State Procurement Officers ValuePoint technical evaluation for MMIS. His most significant achievements of 2020 were moving the bulk of CNSI’s global infrastructure to a multicloud platform during the pandemic and overseeing significant client implementations.

Why Watch

In 2021 and beyond, Nanda’s team is focused on expanding CNSI’s cloud operations to be managed globally and helping customers modernize their infrastructure with the security and lower costs resulting from moving to the cloud.

CNSI’s product pipeline is crucial for public sector health IT transformation and moving legacy MMIS systems to the cloud, company leaders said. This enables infrastructure modernization, speed and automation of product development while enhancing security and cutting costs.

“I’m proud of the way CNSI leverages the cloud to drive better care, better health and lower costs,” Nanda said.
