Webinar: Using Data Analytics to Better Understand Medicaid Populations with Serious Mental Illness: Additional Data Sources

Thursday, May 16, 2019
2-3:30 p.m. (ET)

The Medicaid Innovation Accelerator Program will provide Medicaid agencies with an overview of a new technical resource, Using Data Analytics to Better Understand Medicaid Populations with Serious Mental Illness: Additional Data Sources. This technical resource describes approaches to combining Medicaid data with additional data sources that can assist state Medicaid agencies with developing data analytics to better understand their population with serious mental illness. Data analyses related to housing, corrections/justice involvement and food insecurity are highlighted as examples of the approaches described in the resource. The webinar will feature an overview of the technical resource, example analyses, and a discussion with state Medicaid leaders from Arizona and Minnesota who will share insights based on their experience conducting similar analyses.

This resource builds on the Medicaid claims and encounters data analytics described in the IAP resource Using Data Analytics to Better Understand Medicaid Populations with Serious Mental Illness.
