Government Health: Medicaid Innovation Workshop

Wednesday, October 30: This forum from McKinsey & Company’s Medicaid practice and Center for US Health System Reform, includes a series of timely sessions with leaders in policy, government, and public healthcare administration on critical topics to become Medicaid Agencies of the Future. Agencies will need to support growing and diverse Medicaid beneficiaries, keep pace with innovation within and outside of healthcare, be financially sustainable, and build the right capabilities to drive and sustain this change.

Our sessions will cover:

  • Making it easier – alleviating journey pain points for the most vulnerable
    • Meet the state agencies and their vendor partners transforming key interaction points to improve experience along the patient journey, from applying to Medicaid coverage to accessing care.
  • Staying on track – transforming Medicaid enterprise systems
    • Hear from New Mexico’s Human Services Department on their Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) transformation and key learnings for comprehensive and successful outcomes.
  • Letting the numbers speak – putting data and analytics into practice
    • Hear from leaders across state HHS agencies about how they used data and analytics to better connect Medicaid beneficiaries with other social services programs, to reduce coverage gaps for recently incarcerated individuals, and to dramatically transform their own organizational cultures.
