    Breakouts

    Track 1
    The Medicaid Technology Alliance: A multi-sector public private partnership

    Moderator: Ryan Howells, Principal, Leavitt Partners,
    Panelists: Jess Kahn, Director Data of Data and Systems Group, CMS
    Charlene Frizzera, Senior Advisor, Leavitt Partners; former Acting Administrator for CMS
    Frederick Isasi, National Governors Association
    Chris Underwood, Health Information Office Director, Colorado Department of Health Care Policy & Financing
    Stuart Fuller, Chief Information Officer, Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services
    Tom Jordan, Chief Information Officer, State of New Jersey
    Elena Nicolella, Executive Director, New England States Consortium Systems Organization (NESCSO)


    In December 2015, CMS issued the MMIS 90/10 final regulation. There are significant questions from states, vendors, and consultants regarding how to implement the rule.
    In 2016, Leavitt Partners, NESCSO, the NGA, and CMS convened a multi-sector, public private partnership called the Medicaid Technology Alliance to facilitate a consensus-driven process to solve many of those questions. The goals of the Alliance are to accelerate the development of new technologies, develop consensus-driven modular definitions for states and vendors, promote more effective procurement practices, and identify best practices to help states with implementation. Our presentation will provide an update on the Alliance's progress to date, how other states and interested parties can get involved, and describe the Alliance's vision for the future.

    Track 2
    Financing and Governing Health IT Services through Public/Private Partnerships

    Moderator: Carol Robinson, Principal of CedarBridge Group LLC
    Proposed Panelists: Mark Schaefer, PhD, Director of Healthcare Innovation, Connecticut Office of the Healthcare Advocate
    Amy Zimmerman, Rhode Island State HIT Coordinator, Rhode Island Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS)
    Chris Underwood, Health Information Office Director, Colorado Department of Health Care Policy & Financing
    Sheldon Wolf, Director of North Dakota Health Information Technology

    Developing trust and consensus among public and private sector stakeholders, particularly around financing and governance of new health IT assets, can be difficult. Yet, collaboration is essential for successful HITECH 90/10 funding requests from CMS, and is even more important when governing implementations and operations of technology and data exchange services. Many states are tapping the time-limited Medicaid HITECH funds to implement care management tools, electronic clinical quality measurement systems, population health registries, and other technology-enabled services. Hear about governance strategies and financing tactics from State Innovation Model (SIM) testing states, Colorado and Connecticut, and learn how forward-thinking North Dakota is advancing a five-year plan to provide comprehensive HIE and analytic services without SIM funding.

    Track 3
    Public Health IT Maturity Index: Evaluating and Improving the Adoption and Effective Use of Public Health IT

    Kenyon Crowley, Deputy Director, Center for Health Information & Decision Systems, University of Maryland, Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland Doctoral Scholar, University of Maryland iSchool

    The Public Health IT Maturity Index represents a practical approach to aid public health system stakeholders, notably health departments, in the evaluation of their information technology deployment decisions. The Index details a set of stages that progressively and incrementally detail better use of information technologies to achieve the public health mission. It was developed in collaboration with a large suburban health department and primary care coalition during an EHR rollout, and informed by an extensive literature review and a Delphi exercise with experts from state and local public health departments and national multi-stakeholder groups. The Index’s composition and its applicability as a tool for public health IT strategy, and lessons from a public health EHR implementation will be discussed.

    Track 4
    Building a Foundation of Trust for State Health IT Systems: Risk mitigation strategies to better protect healthcare data against the threat of cybersecurity

    Lee Barrett, Executive Director of the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC)

    The incidence of healthcare cyberattacks have more than doubled in the last five years, and the financial and reputational impacts of a breach can have a monumental impact on a healthcare entity. In a race against the hackers, creating comprehensive risk mitigation strategies is essential; this is especially true as technology continues to evolve and hackers also continue to become more sophisticated in their infiltration techniques. This session will focus on the overarching threat and offer practical strategies, best practices and third party certification/accreditation that state Health IT systems can follow to adjust to the shifting cybercrime landscape and determine the stability of its IT partners, vendors and stakeholders within the organization and reduce their risks for breach or attack.

    Optum (speaker TBC)

    Track 2
    Preparing Encounter Data to be Fit For Purpose

    Herbert H. Fillmore, Sr. Dir. Strategic Innovations and Population Health, 3M Health Information Systems

    Nearly all Medicaid programs have moved or will move soon to managed care products for their population and are receiving encounter data rather than fee for service data. Encounter data can have numerous problems. These problems will undermine quality metrics reporting for the State, MCO's and providers; management of special populations and assuring their access to quality care; and with new CMS regulations, threaten Federal share of Medicaid dollars in 2018.

    This presentation will present a decade of experience in monitoring, analyzing, and improving source data including but not limited to encounter data in all payer and Medicaid programs, and describe what States should be reviewing as they assess options for ensuring data integrity. Items discussed will include: source data integrity check processes frequency and depth; reporting and analytics; and services for MCO processes, persons and technologies.

    Examples of successes and difficult engagements will be discussed along with best practices for successful resolution. The point will be emphasized that these ideas apply to more than just claims. Patient experience surveys, non claims based quality metric data, and social determinant data all will need source data checks.

    Track 3
    HIX 2.0: Considering an Exchange Operator

    Eugene Sayan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Softheon

    Now that federal grants authorized by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) no longer subsidize states for Marketplace operations and information technology (IT), states that run their own health insurance exchanges are feeling budgetary and political pressure to find the most efficient ways to do so. At the same time, a new field of vendors – "Exchange Operators" - that specialize in IT services to health insurers and exchanges has emerged; these vendors use software as a service (SaaS) models to support plan comparison and selection, enrollment, financial management and other transactions. The development of Exchange Operators enables states to take advantage of more efficient ways to organize and divide responsibilities for operating their public Marketplaces and – potentially – to achieve significant cost savings.

    States of Implementation Roundtables

    Roundtable 01: FHIR and Cloud-based Modular Enterprise Framework

    Karen Hale, SVP Strategic Development, Nagnoi, MITA Technical Architecture Committee
    Jess Kahn, Director Data of Data and Systems Group, CMCS/CM
    Dave Walsh, MITA Technical Architecture Committee

    Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS) have been built as single vendor monolithic systems. CMS has indicated that in the future, federal funding will only be supplied for Medicaid solutions that are modular and interoperable. The goal is to open the door for new vendors and new solutions bringing true innovation to the state Medicaids. The MITA TAC is an industry collaborative that is open to all vendors and states. The mission of the MITA TAC is to identify and recommend approaches to modularity that are inclusive, effective, and secure. This roundtable will discuss an open-source framework that the TAC is developing with states and vendors to form the foundation for Medicaid interoperability using clouds and Fast Healthcare Interoperable Resources (FHIR).

    Roundtable 02: MMIS Certification in a Modular Environment

    Dawn Boland, Client Executive, Healthcare and Human Services, CSG Government Solutions
    Robin Dufresne, Director, Healthcare and Human Services Practice, CSG Government Solutions
    State of Vermont (speaker TBC)

    With the concerted move to modular MMIS implementations and system certifications it's increasingly important for states to plan, strategize, and execute modernization projects in alignment with CMS' Final Rule for Mechanized Claims Systems, Medicaid Enterprise Certification Toolkit 2.1, and sub-regulatory guidance. This roundtable discusses applying a modular mindset to your SDLC from strategy and planning through final system certification, recognizing many states are (or will be) going through the milestone review process and are making strides towards modular certifications. We will discuss how to successfully incorporate the Medicaid Enterprise Certification Life Cycle processes and artifacts, including when and how to engage your systems vendors, systems integrator, and IV&V partner, as well as lessons learned from other state's approaches to modularity.

    Roundtable 03: Partnership in an LTSS Technology EcoSystem

    Tim Cortez, Manager Community Options Section, Manager, Colorado Department of Health Care Policy & Financing
    Chris Underwood, Health Information Office Director, Colorado Department of Health Care Policy & Financing
    Steve House, Consultant, Orchestrate Healthcare

    Roundtable 04: Collaborating to Expand Interoperability Across State Lines: The Patient-Centered Data Home

    Teresa Rivera, CEO, UHIN

    To allow for the best care possible, medical records must follow a patient everywhere in the care continuum and across geographic boarders. Recognizing patients living near state lines, those seeking specialty treatment, and travelers seek care across state lines, UHIN, Utah's state-designated HIE, partnered with the HIEs in Arizona and western Colorado to create a Patient-Centered Data Home (PCDH) to share ADTs across state lines. When patients living in one HIE have a medical encounter at a facility participating in the PCDH in another state, their primary care physician back home receives an ADT. In its first year, the PCDH will send approximately 15,000 ADTs across state lines. UHIN is expanding the PCDH to Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada and California.

    Roundtable 05: Patient/Member Engagement, Care Coordination, Interoperability

    Capri Dye, Sr. Consultant, Health Management Associates
    Allison Lynn Weaver, Division of Community System Transformation (DCST), CMCS/CMS

    Roundtable 06: Reducing the Hhealthcare Costs of Pre-Trial Inmate Populations

    Tait Chamberlain, Master of Science in Information Achievement Fellow, University of Michigan School of Information

    Roundtable 07: Second Generation HIEs: What is Different This Time Around and How to Enable Success

    Natalie Blahunka, Public Consulting Group
    Janice C. Paterson, Public Consulting Group

    Roundtable 08: Medicare Systems Standardization – Lessons Learned

    Troy Aswege, SVP, Senior Vice President at Noridian Healthcare Solutions

    Roundtable 09: Electronic Visit Verification: A State & Federal Perspective

    Wendy Reilly, Manager Government Relations, HID Global Inc.
    Texas Health and Human Services
    US Energy and Commerce Committee (speaker TBC)


    The foundation of an effective and efficient home health service solution must employ a reliable manner by which caregiver services can be accurately verified; this system is known as Electronic Visit Verification or EVV. Recent innovations in technology have paved the way for a more seamless EVV system to verify a caregiver's attendance or "proof of presence," and to assure states that services are being delivered to recipients according to providers' claims. In January 2014, the state of Illinois became the first to mandate the use of EVV. Since 2014, numerous other states have either mandated or encouraged the voluntary use of EVV. Despite recent federal legislation being introduced that would mandate EVV nationwide for certain Medicaid programs, the states still remain a patchwork of policies and with varying adoption rates.

    This roundtable discussion will provide a state and federal perspective on how implementing a secure EVV solution provides proof of presence, accountability and accuracy to combat the billion dollar dilemma in Home Healthcare.

    Roundtable 10: Developing a national standard for an Electronic Long-Term Services and Supports Record (e-LTSS)

    Tim Cortez, Manager of the Community Options Section, Department of Health Care Policy & Financing (the Department), Colorado’s State Medicaid Agency.

    The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing launched on an ambitious project to deploy new software systems throughout its Medicaid program that will allow for the integration of member level data across various delivery systems. This integration of data across systems will improve care coordination, health outcomes and the design of Medicaid benefits and public policy. As part of this effort, the Department is one of a few states working with CMS and ONC to establish national standards for an electronic long-terms services and supports record (e-LTSS). Capturing and sharing e-LTSS data between providers meaningfully has the potential to improve the coordination of care that can prevent hospital admissions/readmissions or identify, prevent or mitigate other negative consequences that impact health outcomes. This discussion will discuss the need for and challenges of coordinating information sharing between the LTSS and Health Care Systems of Care and how can setting national standards for e-LTSS mitigate these challenges.

    Enterprise Transformation Strategies: From Oversight to Ownership

    Melody Hayes, Deputy Director CA-MMIS Division California Department of Health Care Services
    Carl Engel, CEO, Elyon Enterprise Strategies, Inc.

    The California Medicaid Management Information System (CA-MMIS) has completed a new Strategic Plan and Visioning effort that is driving the overall move of the organization to transform how it assumes more direct state administration for CA-MMIS enterprise services management and shifts to more an "Ownership" model from one of "Oversight". There is no part of CA-MMIS that will remain unaffected by this change, including everything from how the organization is structured and measured, to how the vendor community is evaluated. This is why CA-MMIS is also finalizing its Concept of Operations, a detailed guide for not only the future, but the roadmap that informs every part the organization as to how it will get there.

    Paul Messino, Chief of Health Information Technology Policy with the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
    Chris Smith, Clinical Data Interoperability Program Manager, Mississippi Division of Medicaid

    With various reform efforts underway (DSRIP, Managed Care Modernization, Shared Risk, Value Based, and Global Budgets), Health IT infrastructure is needed to achieve maximum success. With various Health IT efforts supported across governments and communities, large gaps of data mobility and utilization still exist across providers and governments alike. This session will highlight several key areas:

    • Identify current gaps and lessons learned through implementing payment reform
    • Recommend a Health IT Framework needed to support future reform efforts in Medicaid
    • State of Maryland's ADT Project through the Encounter Notification Service (ENS)
    • State of Mississippi's Modernization of Medicaid Infrastructure to Support Clinical Data Project

    Track 3
    Achieving Health Information Exchange Interoperability

    Bonnie Harris, Bonnie Harris, IT Project Manager, Public Consulting Group
    Jackie Phan, Senior Project Manager, Public Consulting Group

    Health Information Exchange (HIE) brings together information about a patient to the clinician and the care team to enable them to make well-informed, coordinated, patient-centered care. In order to achieve electronic information sharing, electronic health records (EHRs) and other clinical software must be "interoperable" or have the capability to exchange information using agreed upon standards and the willingness of those providing care and services to share information. Interoperability is the extent to which systems and devices can exchange data, and interpret that shared data. Achieving one of the three levels of interoperability (foundational, structural, and semantic), requires three critical pathways:

    • Standards
    • Motivating the use of those standards
    • Creating a trusted environment for collecting, sharing, and using electronic health information.

    The Bleeding Edge of Modularity: The Louisiana Experience

    Bill Perkins, Louisiana Department of Health Medicaid Deputy Director

    Louisiana is in the midst of a Medicaid modernization project which includes replacement of its eligibility system, modernizing the technical architecture upon which it systems will reside and interact, and replacing its legacy MMIS with a modular MES. This modernization project is truly an incredibly complex enterprise modernization undertaking in its own right. However, layered on top of that complexity is the requirement to replace MMIS with a modular solution for which there is no clear or simple path forward. Louisiana is among the early states moving forward in the new modular world while taking on an incredibly complex modernization effort. The combination of the two will, and has, produced some unique experiences and lessons learned. This presentation will discuss these lessons learned and provide valuable insight to other states and vendors who will be soon taking on similar challenges.

    A Population Health Informatics Framework; Chronic Disease Prevention and Management Needs

    John Loonsk, Consultant to CDC, CMIO CGI Federal
    Jason Bonander, Director of the Office of Informatics and Information Resource Management Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion

    The $34 billion dollar HITECH investment and Meaningful Use requirements have focused considerable attention on Electronic Health Record (EHR) adoption and related system needs. The incentives, standards, and testing and wide-spread adoption of EHRs, critical tools that have begun to deliver on the promises of health information technology.
    However, the Affordable Care Act has added new layers to healthcare delivery, layers effecting clinical quality, payment, and public health programs with an increased focus on population health. Indeed, population health IT systems are now emerging in clinical care. These systems and the involved EHRs also have specific needs for requirements, standards, and testing to achieve population health outcomes.

    The CDC’s Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion seeks to insure that electronic chronic disease prevention and management capabilities are broadly available to support the health of the public. Under the rubric of a Population Health Informatics Framework, we propose design elements that have the potential to work together with other elements to advance population health functionality and further promote population health outcomes.

    Mining C-CDA to Populate Clostridium difficile Case Report Form

    KP Sethi, Senior Software Architect, Lantana Consulting Group
    Rebecca Perlmutter Maryland DHMH (TBC)
    Marc Falcone, Senior Manager HIT Policy, Audacious Inquiry
    Lindsey Ferris, Project Manager, CRISP (Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients)

    Maryland is participating in C. difficile surveillance as part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Emerging Infections Program (EIP). This is a population based form of laboratory surveillance that covers a specific catchment area in Maryland, for which all cases of C. difficile Infection (CDI) are reported. New cases of CDI require a chart review to complete a standard case report form. Currently, providers must fax or mail records, which is a manual process, requiring effort by providers and health department surveillance staff. As required by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT’s (ONC) 2014&2015 Edition Certification criteria, certified health IT modules must be able to export a patient’s chart in a structured XML format known as C-CDA. The C-CDA XML files contain many of the data elements necessary to populate the Case Report Form for CDI. Our team mapped data elements required for the case report form to data elements found in the C-CDA XML. Once a patient is found using the trigger codes, their data is transformed to the appropriate format required for the Case Report Form. The goal is to populate the Case Report Form automatically, using the C-CDA XML data elements or other HIE-derived data elements.
