Supporting Medicaid Reform Through Business Intelligence, Year 4


Many state Medicaid programs are targeting high-need populations—those with multiple chronic illnesses or mental health problems, for example—as they strive to improve quality, deliver person-centered care, and promote cost-effectiveness. While some technical assistance is available to help states in these efforts, Medicaid directors lack timely information on best practices. This project aims to address the need for timely information in priority areas of value-based reform. It will provide state Medicaid directors and federal policymakers with regular, actionable intelligence on state progress, effective strategies, emerging barriers, and early outcomes. Staff with the National Association of State Medicaid Directors (NAMD) will form two “sentinel” state groups that will provide a potent venue for state-to-state learning while collecting timely information for state and federal officials. The first group sentinel group will focus on improving behavioral health care issues, and the second will likely focus on long-term services and supports. Information gleaned from these groups will be shared with policymakers through a variety of means, including teleconferences and “innovation snapshots.”
