Developing State Capacity to Forecast Return on Investment from Quality Improvement Initiatives


The Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) has developed the Return on Investment Forecasting Calculator to help state Medicaid agencies promote quality improvement interventions that have the potential to improve health outcomes while controlling expenditures. In this project, six to eight states will enter a one-year partnership with CHCS and its expert consultants to test the utility of this decision-support tool for projecting the benefits and costs of specific quality-enhancing initiatives. CHCS expects that participating states will implement at least one initiative from among the options they run through the calculator. In addition, CHCS will provide a forum—open to state officials, health plan leaders, and other stakeholders—for disseminating lessons learned and showcasing best practices.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will provide cofunding.
