Webinar Replay: The Growing Role of Business Intelligence and Information Technology in State Medicaid Population Health Management Programs

This webinar was held on August 5, 2021. 

State Medicaid agencies (SMAs) are increasingly relying on business intelligence platforms and other information technology (IT) solutions to provide the type of robust analytics needed for successful population health management programs. During this webinar, experts from Health Management Associates (HMA) and Cerner discussed the business intelligence and related IT needs of SMAs specific to population health management, based in part on the results of a recent, proprietary survey of SMAs.  Speakers also discussed how modern IT solutions can be leveraged to address these needs, especially in a world in which modularity and interoperability are king.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the major SMA drivers of IT investments in support of population health management goals and programs, including the need to better manage cost and improve outcomes among high acuity beneficiaries.
  • Identify common gaps in information technology and business intelligence capabilities at SMAs which can impact the success of population health management initiatives.
  • Find out how business intelligence platforms and information technology solutions can promote interstate and intrastate collaboration on population health management programs, including enterprise initiatives across Medicaid agencies and health and human services agencies.
  • Gain insights into the evolution of population health management analytics, business intelligence platforms, and IT solutions that promote modularity and interoperability.
