He will review telehealth-specific Medicaid guidelines including the State Practice Act, and explain the importance of satisfying federal requirements in each state for telehealth reimbursement under Medicaid.

Technology Modernization: One State’s Journey
Date: October 16, 2019
Time: 2:00- Eastern
Associate Member Host: Medecision
Presenter: Ted Jones, Vice President, Government Engagement, Medecision

Wednesday, October 16, 2019
2:00PM - 3:00PM EST

MCOs need sophisticated systems to manage the data for and assess and track the needs of the complex populations they serve, and those systems must be able to provide encounter data and reporting to meet State Medicaid and CMS requirements. Legacy systems often take an outdated approach to member assessments and often do not interact with newer replacement systems, requiring significant time and resources of the members, their caregivers, and care managers.

In this session, we’ll discuss an example from a large State Medicaid program as they modernize their systems and streamline their assessments for their LTSS population, and how MCOs can learn from what this state is doing. We’ll examine best practices in transitioning systems, what to be aware of in systems upgrades, the benefits of skip logic and shared questions and answers in assessment design, how to incorporate social determinants of health (SDoH) in assessment design.
