PAVE 3.0 Upcoming Events

March 13, 2018

Thank you for your continued interest and support of the Department of Health Care Services’ (DHCS) Provider Application and Validation for Enrollment (PAVE) system, our automated, online solution for enrolling fee-for-service Medi-Cal providers. DHCS has worked diligently to finalize the development of PAVE and anticipates implementing PAVE Release 3.0 this summer.

PAVE improves the way you do business with the Provider Enrollment Division (PED). PAVE includes a secure web-based provider portal that offers guided preparation, context-based intelligence, social collaboration, secure and private messaging, account management, affiliations management, real-time status tracking, document storage, reporting changes functionality, e-signatures and much more. The solution leverages current technologies to improve the customer experience and realize organizational efficiencies.

DHCS needs your help to ensure the successful implementation of the PAVE Release 3.0. Part of that success includes providing our stakeholders with the opportunity to preview PAVE Release 3.0 at an Open House event, partnering with the provider community to thoroughly test PAVE before the release and hosting training opportunities. Please join us and participate in one or all of the upcoming activities. We also look forward to receiving your feedback on PAVE Release 3.0.

Participants will be able to access and test the web-based PAVE application in their own environment. Testing feedback will provide DHCS with critical information on the PAVE user experience and the proper functionality of the new system. Test data will be loaded into PAVE to allow providers to experience creating and submitting an application.

Testing will be held over two weeks at your location. Testers can expect to spend approximately two hours per day, including a brief conference call with DHCS each morning. No experience is necessary and training is provided. Register to be a PAVE 3.0 Beta tester here.
