Using Massachusetts Medicaid Payment and Care Delivery System reforms as a model, this presentation will highlight the process and value of stakeholder engagement in delivery system restructuring. MassHealth covers almost 2 million people throughout the commonwealth, and the department has recently undertaken the effort to restructure the current MassHealth delivery system "in a manner that promotes integrated, coordinated care and holds providers accountable for quality and total cost of care of its member." This presentation will highlight some of the findings in a state-study looking at the diverse needs of the state. 

Key takeaways

  • Payment and care delivery system reforms must lead to a sustainable system of care.
  • Data analytics and quality measurement of alternative payment and care delivery models are still under development.
  • Stakeholder engagement can be invaluable in the identification of gaps in care and in the design of these APMs and metrics.

Mingle, share and learn in this unique, rapid fire and interactive environment.

If you missed a speaker during Monday’s concurrent afternoon sessions on data, care coordination, and patient engagement, here’s your chance to talk to that speaker.

Each speaker will be stationed at a table in the ballroom and attendees can circulate and speak one-on-one with individual speakers.

This is a great opportunity to gather information that addresses your organization’s specific pop health challenges.
