WHERE THE BRIGHTEST MINDS in health and IT meet.
February 19-23, 2017
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.
