• What to Expect at MESC 2013

    Posted on

    We are looking forward to attending the Medicaid Enterprise Systems Conference (MESC) in Charleston this year. The MESC brings together hundreds of thought leaders from the public and private sectors to share ideas related to Medicaid systems and initiatives.

    Our executive leadership will be in attendance and featured on several panels. Below are two of the panels on which CNSI officers will participate.

    Accountable Care Organization (ACO): Supplying Data and Analytics to Drive Care Coordination, Accountability and Consumer Engagement (September 10, 9:15 a.m.)

    CNSI Chief Medical Officer Stephen B. Walker, M.D. will take part on this panel, which focuses on identifying common data and analytics to evaluate ACO performance in reducing costs and improving the quality of healthcare. The goal of ACOs is to provide coordinated care to ensure that patients get timely treatment, while avoiding duplicating services and saving heath care dollars.

    Care Management and Value Based Architecture for States (September 10, 3:00 p.m.)

    Renee Bostick, Vice President of Health and Human Services at CNSI, will discuss care management technology on this panel. With three aims for “better health, better care and better costs,” panelists will focus on select care management capabilities that allow for seamless Medicaid enrollment and more efficient payment models. The panelists will also discuss the National Strategy for Quality Improvement in Health Care (National Quality Strategy), which aligns public and private interests to improve the quality of health care for Americans.

    Aside from these panels, conference participants will be discussing ways to eliminate healthcare fraud, modernize Medicaid IT and leverage current technological assets to promote long-term sustainability of health information exchange models.
