Call For Session Abstracts – March 31 Due Date is Almost Here!

March 24, 2017 in Current Update

Submissions of abstracts has been brisk over the past couple of weeks…be sure to submit your abstract by the closing date of March 31, 2017 to be included for consideration at MESC 2017!

Our major tracks this year include five topics that reflect the operational steps of a system’s implementation:

  • Planning – Medicaid enterprise business needs and how to ensure they drive the technology
  • Design – Technical aspects of systems that support the Medicaid Enterprise System
  • Financing – Processes for States to secure federal matching funds and effectively procure the solutions that will meet the need
  • Project Management– Activities that occur after procurement, including the appropriate and potential roles of the State, private and public sector contractors
  • Information Management– State data analytic efforts, new tools and new approaches to help States make the best use of their systems once they’re built

We have also added three specialty tracks that are more narrowly focused:

  • Third Party Liability – Medicaid TPL business processes including accurate payments, coordination of benefits, and collection
  • HHS Interoperability – Sessions to highlight and motivate interoperability at both the business and technology level across multiple programs to improve outcomes and address the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH)
  • Training – Proposals of interest to State and Industry personnel who are new to the Medicaid Enterprise and/or the systems that support it. We are looking for topics to be presented in a workshop format with mixed State and Industry faculty. These sessions can be longer than an hour.

Finally, note that these topics are intended to be an organizing tool. If you have an idea that you are passionate about but does not neatly fall into one of the categories below, please still submit it. We encourage you to be as creative as possible in developing your session proposals!

Call For Poster Abstracts

February 21, 2017 in Current Update

Join us by participating in the annual MESC Poster Session networking event on Thursday evening.
Attendees from State government agencies are invited to submit posters individually or as teams to highlight a relevant project that they have initiated or completed within their State. The format of the Poster Session is designed for states to present a graphic display of their project on a 4’x8′ poster board. Presenters participate in engaging their colleagues from across the country in an active discussion about their project during this fun and exciting networking event.
Team poster submissions may include partners from the vendor community, universities, or other nonprofit organizations. Vendors may not submit posters individually but may participate as part of a State team.

The MESC will provide reimbursement (e.g., registration and travel expenses) for one State employee who presents their State poster.
