Panel: Discussing innovative pharmacy strategies and the latest in technology to close care gaps in Medicaid populations


Thursday, June 20, 2024 | 2 p.m. ET

In 2025, health care will generate 36% of the world’s data volume. Blending and analyzing Information from multiple sources, from medical and pharmacy claims to real time vitals from innovative wearable health monitors, will be attainable. Barriers to utilizing this wealth of data often include insufficient human or clinical resources and the inability to turn raw data around into actionable insights in a timely manner. This often poses a challenge for healthcare in not only knowing how to help, but exactly who needs help, and when.

What if those barriers were removed? Imagine a preventative health initiative that can identify fluctuations in medication adherence, changes in medication regimes that impact HEDIS and STAR measures or a new chronic disease diagnosis that notifies the appropriate health care professional with a recommended intervention, all in real-time. Join us to learn about how to efficiently target Medicaid individuals based on their unique health profile, explore solutions to close care gaps and to understand the role AI will play from automation to personalized patient care.

Bridging Care Gaps: Unleash the Power of Mobile Integrated Health (MIH)

Wednesday, May 1, 2024 | 2 p.m. ET

Adults who live in rural areas are 78% less likely to receive home-based medical care than those who live in larger metropolitan counties—a staggering statistic that can lead to higher ER utilization, more hospital readmissions, and increased healthcare costs. Mobile Integrated Health (MIH) is a powerful approach to healthcare that is revolutionizing the way health plans nationwide—particularly in rural communities—offer healthcare access to their members. Learn how MIH programs seamlessly integrate technology, community paramedicine, Community Health Worker resources, and community-based organizations to deliver proactive, patient-centered care. And by leveraging real-time data with an emphasis on social determinants of health (SDOH), you’ll learn how MIH programs like MTM’s identify and fill gaps in care, reduce unnecessary hospital visits, and improve overall health outcomes.

3 Behavioral Health Strategies You Can Implement Now to Improve Outcomes and Decrease Costs of Care in Marginalized Populations

Wednesday, April 17, 2024 | 2 p.m. ET


Forty percent of all adults enrolled in Medicaid experience mental illness or substance use disorder (SUD) and account for nearly half of all healthcare expenditures. Mental illness is often exacerbated by social and economic factors and individuals with severe mental illness are 2 to 3 times more likely to live in poverty, affecting their access to care. Yet, traditional outpatient behavioral healthcare often falls short in addressing the full spectrum of needs faced by many members, especially marginalized and high-cost members with social needs.

Join us to learn three innovative ways an integrated behavioral health solution has proven to help health plans:

  • Reduce total costs of care for high cost members.
  • Address clinical and social needs, while also improving quality measures.
  • Empower members with the right tools required for long-term success.

Sharing the Care: The Path to Better Outcomes

Wednesday, January 24, 2024 | 2 p.m. ET


Every human has a health resource community composed of a multitude of people - doctors, case managers, providers, families, and brokers. When these people are unaffiliated and operating in silos, it makes the experience of care fragmented. Integrated care requires a single source of truth where all members of a community can benchmark their decisions and actions to create a more concordant care experience. By utilizing health resource community orchestration to support clinical integration and data sharing, organizations can provide better, more person-centered care and improve outcomes for the individuals they support. During this webinar, presenters will share data and case studies from PHP, a provider-led managed care organization that is governed by providers who support people with developmental disabilities dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare. Presenters will also discuss how artificial intelligence can be used to support integrated care by simplifying the risk stratification process.
