Medicaid Data for the Future

Friday, August 23, 10:45 am – 12:15 pm
In a rapidly changing world, how can states align Medicaid program quality and access goals with information and data-collecting activities? For example, how can state Medicaid programs leverage recent federal guidance on information access to engage patients as informed consumers of health care? This session features California and Montana’s work and examine how states are preparing to capitalize on past IT investments once Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) funding expires. This is presented in collaboration with the Medicaid Enterprise Systems Conference/NESCSO. (
