    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
    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)
    Carrie Yasemin Paykoc, Colorado State Health IT Coordinator, Office of eHealth Innovation
    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.

    Track 1
    Enterprise Transformation Strategies: Epic Journey to a Modular Approach 

    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) Division plans are driving the overall transformation of the organization as it assumes more direct state administration for CA-MMIS enterprise services delivery. 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 defining the core capabilities that will make the division successful. As the largest Medicaid service provider in the nation, this transformation is of epic proportions, and there are several critical initiatives involving people, processes and technology that are guiding this journey.

    Track 2
    Unlock the Power of Data for More Effective Health and Human Services

    Abha Keshava, Offering Lead - Social Programs, IBM Watson Health
    Mark Gillespie, Offering Lead, Truven Health Analytics, an IBM Company

    In an evolving health and human services environment with impending health policy changes, leaders need deeper and broader insight to carry out their missions. A new partnership has emerged between humanity and technology, one that takes analytics to a new level and drives insights to action. In this session, learn more about how the evolution of analytics enables new models that can deliver a single view of the citizen to support individualized approaches to care; how predictive models and anomaly detection can help maintain program integrity; and how evolutionary cognitive computing technology can aid decision-making to match citizens with optimal service providers.

    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.

    Track 4
    Cloud-Powered Collaboration for Value-Based Care

    Nadav Benbarak, Group Marketing Manager, Vertical Solutions, Okta

    For value-based care to succeed, we need tools that enable effective collaboration across organizations. Care, patients, data, and funds need to flow across a complex web of providers and payors without friction. Today, among the biggest problems in the way of these critical interactions is access management. Simply put, legacy technologies make external collaboration a mess.

    This session will explore how cloud IAM in concert with both cloud-based and legacy tools can help to overcome the access hurdles that so burden the move to value-based care, through the experience of Mt Sinai Health System’s Community Care Hub.

    Keynote Panel: Accelerating Insights Across H&HS with Integration and Actionable Analytics

    Moderator: Jeremy Racine, Healthcare Director, SAS
    Ellen Marie Whelan, Senior Advisor, CMMI, CMS
    Meghan Vanderstelt, Policy Director, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services
    Eugene Sayan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Softheon
    Bradley J. Long, Cluster CIO HHS, Illinois Department of Innovation & Technology

    In collaboration with Federal innovation/modernization initiatives State H&HS agencies have often made investments in analytics to support quality and performance outcomes for individual programs. With so much of what makes people healthy taking place outside of the healthcare delivery system, the ability to look across various non-health data systems (such as social services and other non-health social determinants) is critical to supporting a 360 degree view of citizen’s wellness and improve decision support for patients, providers and policy makers. Join our panel of experts who will share from the Federal, state implementation and private sector innovation perspectives their efforts to accelerate insights through actionable analytics as we move towards a future where people are increasingly incentivized and empowered in supporting improved health outcomes.

    Assessing the State of Eligibility and Enrollment

    Stephen A. Smith, MBA, Senior Director, General Dynamics Health Solutions

    Evolving public programs, such as Medicaid, require processes and technologies that not only keep up with the changes and legislation, but provide comprehensive communications to inform and engage citizens. With the anticipated repeal and/or modification of the Affordable Care Act, many state health organizations question how new legislation will affect eligibility and enrollment processes and requirements. During this session, we will examine potential impacts to state Medicaid enrollment programs, to include limited resources, fixed reimbursement, and asset and income verification.

    Track 2
    Medicaid HIT Infrastructure Needed to Support Payment and Healthcare Reform

    Tom Novak, Medicaid Interoperability Lead, Office of the National Coordinator
    Jason McNamara, Director, Health Information Systems, Audacious Inquiry
    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:
    - Pursue a whole new level of data sharing by building patient ecosystems that connect disparate but complementary agencies and providers in a network of care that can improve outcomes and reduce costs.
    • 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

    Brian Erdahl, Principal and the Chief Solution Architect, Deloitte
    Thomas Beck, Public Sector Chief Technology Officer, Deloitte

    Modularization, interoperability, and analytics are the current hot topics for health care technologies. What’s next? Will use of cloud-based and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) technologies continue to increase? Is there a role for more mobile applications? Can sensors, devices, and “smart” things bring benefits to your state health care programs? And in the midst of it all, how can you leverage your integration platform to support bold new approaches to manage data and support evolving business models? Join in as we explore evolving technological trends, how they may impact your longer-term business models, and what you can do today to prepare.

    Track 4
    Enterprise Identity Management in Health Care for Today and Tomorrow: the Evolution of Identity Management Solutions

    Justin Hyde, Director of Market Planning, Health and Human Services, LexisNexis Risk Solutions</em

    The government health care ecosystem is under attack. Fraudsters, increasingly organized criminal groups are infiltrating and robbing health care programs using stolen identities. State health insurance exchanges, Medicaid programs, public health plans are all at risk. Simply put if health care benefits or services are being provided, criminals are using stolen identities, likely at scale, to steal them. This presentation will discuss how government health and human services customers are using these tactics in a multi-layered approach to detect fraud, stop fraud and – most importantly – prevent it before the agency allows the fraudster to receive the benefit or service.

    What Does your Future Look Like? Taking the Mystery Out of a Services-based Approach

    Kay Hallawell, Senior Solution Architect, Optum Government Solutions
    Julie Boughn, Audacious Inquiry, LLC; former Deputy Director, Center for Medicaid and CHIP, CMS
    Ravila Helen White, Deputy Director of Strategic Program, UHG’s Enterprise Information Security Team

    The Medicaid Enterprise of the future will improve how we manage, measure, transform and evolve our Medicaid programs to support healthier citizens and communities while conserving costs. This vision provides the opportunity to think differently. Join us to learn more about a powerful alternative - a services-based approach – to comprehensively manage Fee-For-Service (FFS) populations. We’ll discuss the benefits of this approach, where it’s being used successfully today, how it supports modularity and Medicaid modernization, and how it can be certified under MMIS procedures.

    Track 2
    Analytics Make My Head Hurt! A Prescription for Actionable Insights

    Joseph Fiorentino, Managing Director, Health and Human Services, Accenture
    Martin Baker, MSc, Senior Director, Strategic Growth and Business Development, UMass Medical School

    Analytics has been a challenge in Health and Human Services (HHS), and it’s no wonder. The amount and types of data, data privacy challenges, and the number of technology options can make your head hurt. However, actionable data insight can make the patient care system more person-centered, coordinated and collaborative. • Agencies need a new data mindset if they are going to use data to improve decision-making, align finite resources, measure performance and improve outcomes. This interactive session will challenge attendees to: - Move beyond compliance and operational approaches to creatively use data that reinvents service delivery and builds a stronger network of care.

    • Avoid investing in infrastructure as a first step to their analytics strategy and pivot to advanced techniques that solve pressing business problems fast
    • Pursue a whole new level of data sharing by building patient ecosystems that connect disparate but complementary agencies and providers in a network of care that can improve outcomes and reduce costs.

    The University of Massachusetts Medical School will present on their partnership with a state agency to develop an analytics platform that addresses demands on publicly funded long-term services and places meaningful information in the hands of policy-makers. Even with data residing in multiple systems, in multiple formats, their solution did not require a large data warehouse.
    Accenture will introduce an end-to-end analytics solution designed specifically for Publicly Funded Health Services to simplify analytics and deliver actionable insights from across the patient ecosystem to drive better outcomes and person centered care. We will discuss how analytics solutions can be implemented quickly and deliver results fast.

    Achieving Health Information Exchange Interoperability

    Bonnie Harris, IT Project Manager, Public Consulting Group
    Tom Cooper, Project Manager, State of Tennessee Department of Health Care and Finance Administration's TennCare program
    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.

    Track 4
    Embracing Patient Trust in HIEs

    Tim Burris, Patient Privacy Product Solutions, Iatric Systems

    HIEs hold the crown jewels of personal patient information because of the number of organizations they represent. Thus, HIEs are a target for criminals who steal patient information in order to commit medical or financial fraud. This presentation will discuss why active risk assessments are important, and will describe how using a proactive approach to find inappropriate behavior will reduce the overall risk of a privacy breach. This approach is based on an underlying vision: to build an environment of patient trust, and make that trust a strategic asset.

    Track 4
    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.

    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
    Joe Liscinsky, Vermont Health Access Health Enterprise Director and MMIS Program Lead
    Lisa Alger, Client Executive, Healthcare and Human Services, CSG Government Solutions

    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.

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

    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
    John Loonsk, Consultant to CDC, CMIO CGI Federal

    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.

    Track 3
    Mining C-CDA to Populate Clostridium difficile Case Report Form KP Sethi, Senior Software Architect, Lantana Consulting Group

    Rebecca Perlmutter Maryland DHMH
    Marc Falcone, Senior Manager HIT Policy, Audacious Inquiry

    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.

    Track 4
    Tackling prescription drug misuse: Evolving from decentralized management to an interoperable interstate model

    Joshua Moore, Executive Account Manager, Conduent
    Janelle Sheen, Pharmacy Solutions Director, Clinical Pharmacy Services, Conduent,
    Nicole Russell, Manager Government Affairs, NCPDP
    Charlie Oltman, Sr Consultant, President NCPDP Foundation

    Many programs seek a “magic bullet” to manage prescription opioids, but it takes a coordinated effort. Missouri’s MO HealthNet program uses a multi-pronged strategy of leveraging medical and pharmacy claims data to uncover opioid management opportunities. MO HealthNet’s automated clinical prior authorization criteria prospectively edit opioid prescriptions at the point of sale, while retrospective provider-focused interventions target drugs of abuse.

    NCPDP will present an interoperable, interstate model that leverages industry standards and fortifies state PDMPs. NCPDP’s model also meets the Comprehensive Addiction & Recovery Act (CARA) requirements of interoperability, real-time controlled substance risk alerts, use of a common data sharing platform, and integration within provider workflows using existing, industry standards.
