Call for Abstracts Now Open!
January 26, 2017 in Current Update
The MESC 2017 Planning Committee seeks to provide conference participants with information about the current state of the Medicaid enterprise and the Information Technology used to support it. We are seeking to ensure abstracts reflect the many systems and diverse solutions that comprise the breadth of the Medicaid IT enterprise, including but not limited to MMIS, Eligibility and Enrollment systems, HITECH/EHR, decision support, managed care IT support, systems that support waivers.
This year we have organized our request for session abstracts into five major topics that reflect the operational steps of a system’s implementation: Planning, Design, Financing, Procurement, and Implementation/Monitoring. We have also added three specialty tracks that are more narrowly focused: Third Party Liability; Interoperability; and Training.
Please remember that conference sessions, unless otherwise noted, are expected to last an hour. Due to the number of abstracts we receive, we may need to combine similarly themed abstracts in to one session. That will only be done when sufficient time can be provided to presenters.
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!
The submittal deadline for abstracts is March 31, 2017.
