Erin Behrmann’s work focuses on the delivery of technical assistance to federal and state Medicaid partners and the use of data to improve health programs. Her expertise includes technical assistance, the use of human-centered design in needs-assessment planning and implementation, and project management. She is a policy program manager in Mathematica’s Health Division.
Behrmann has worked extensively in state- and federal-facing technical assistance, and she currently serves as the technical assistance task lead on the Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Scorecard. She leads technical assistance development for state learning, using human-centered design techniques to identify Scorecard use and usability challenges, conducting baseline needs assessments of state capabilities and learning needs, leading focus groups with subject matter experts and state Medicaid officials, and identifying the best resources to support uptake of the Scorecard among states. In addition, for the Medicaid and CHIP Business Information Solution project, Behrmann provides technical assistance to support data quality for the Transformed Medicaid Statistical Information System and Medicaid and CHIP Performance Indicators.
Before joining Mathematica in 2015, Behrmann was a senior analyst at the U.S. Government Accountability Office. She holds an M.I.D. in human security from the University of Pittsburgh and is certified by the Project Management Institute as a Project Management Professional.
