This week, Mathematica’s Medicaid researchers, data scientists, and consultants will share their experience using and improving Medicaid data at the Medicaid Enterprise Systems Conference in Denver, Colorado. Experts from Mathematica and NewWave will be in Booth 139 to showcase Imersis®, a Medicaid data quality solution that helps states root out sources of bad data, remediate data quality issues before states submit files to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and perform Transformed Medicaid Statistical Information System (T-MSIS) data quality checks before and after implementation of the Medicaid Enterprise System module as part of CMS module certification.
“T-MSIS continues to grow as a valuable data source for CMS, and it is increasingly becoming a priority data source for states to monitor the health of their Medicaid Enterprise,” said Paul Messino, principal researcher and head of Mathematica’s Imersis engagements. “We designed Imersis to quickly improve data quality scores for this important asset. This year, we are excited to discuss success stories from some of our state partners and provide demonstrations to interested states and territories.”
“Our data capabilities continue to grow and complement our established policy analysis and consulting capabilities,” added Joshua Baker, Mathematica’s vice president for state Medicaid and health policy. “Beyond our newly licensed product, Imersis, our team continues to assist CMS and states with T-MSIS reporting and analytics and the use of Medicaid data to improve people’s lives.”
Besides sharing Mathematica’s Imersis and T-MSIS capabilities, the team members on site are excited to talk about home and community-based services (HCBS) challenges at the federal and state levels. We are involved in many projects involving HCBS data, and the demand for improving and expanding services will only rise as the population gets older and more needful of fully integrated long-term services and supports models in Medicaid.
