Mathematica’s state and federal Medicaid experts will share their insights at the upcoming Medicaid Enterprise Systems Conference (MESC) in Charlotte, North Carolina. Experts from Mathematica and NewWave will be in Booth 303 at MESC to showcase Imersis, a Medicaid data quality solution that helps states improve care, promote health, address program integrity, and reduce costs.
“There’s a lot for us to share this year at MESC. In addition to our success engaging states with Imersis, we’ve refined our data analytics approach for states,” said principal researcher and state Medicaid area director Paul Messino. “Our team is excited to connect with the Medicaid community.”
Mathematica staff will present with our partners in North Carolina on a session about access to long-term services and supports. Our staff will also join representatives from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to discuss state T-MSIS data quality improvements during CMS office hours. Many Mathematica experts will attend in person, including Carey Appold, recently named vice president of Mathematica’s federal Medicaid practice; Josh Baker, vice president of Mathematica’s state Medicaid and health policy practice; and Paul Messino, who leads Mathematica’s Imersis solution work.
Progress together in North Carolina: Using data to integrate people with disabilities into the community
Mathematica’s Kent Davis, principal solutions architect, and Jessica Ross, principal researcher, will join staff from North Carolina’s Department of Health and Human Services in a session on “Monitoring Progress Towards Integrating People with Disabilities into the Community Using Non-Traditional Healthcare Data Sources.” North Carolina approached Mathematica looking for a partner who could use multiple, diverse data sources to understand how Transitions to Community Living services help people with serious mental illness thrive in the community. We partnered with the North Carolina team to develop and implement a data-driven system to ensure quality and improve performance of Transitions to Community Living.
