Description

States’ IT systems are critical for successful operation of Medicaid, the nation’s largest public health insurance program. Increasingly, modular and interoperable Medicaid IT systems are becoming vital for promoting health outcomes of Medicaid beneficiaries and for reducing Medicaid program costs. While CMS, ONC and other federal agencies have issued guidance for interoperability in Medicaid, there still exists great opportunities for enhancements that are critical to achieving a true national, interoperable Medicaid. This session will discuss the critical areas of interoperability, how further guidance from HHS agencies can accelerate Medicaid Interoperability by states and how health information exchanges (HIEs) can be leveraged.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Discuss what interoperability means specifically in the current Medicaid environment, particularly with respect to CMS, ONC and industry guidance
  • Identify specific opportunities and use cases that can be fulfilled through State Medicaid Agency and HIE interoperability
  • Develop specific next steps and best practice guidance that can be taken today and going forward to help address those opportunities
  • Evaluate pilot opportunities that are feasible, usable, valuable and well-scoped to achieve State Medicaid Agency and Health Information Exchange interoperability within a focused area
