Innovation Opportunities in Medicaid
Late last year there was a series of round tables - that took place in Nashville, Boston, Denver, and Washington, DC. The focus was on improving implementing, funding, and scaling Medicaid delivery systems
One aspect the panels looked into was “Member Engagement”, which means how to find, motivate, and empower patients to be diligent and committed in managing their health. It’s a really tough issue, particularly because as a participant from Boston put it:
"Even the best predictive analytics can’t engage someone who isn’t in our system."
Four of the biggest challenges relative to patient engagement were identified as:
Finding members and staying in touch, especially if they are transient or frequently rolling on and off coverage
Equipping and incentivizing patients to navigate the health system in ways that make appropriate use of benefits
Providing access to care that accounts for the realities and stressors common in the lives of low-income patients
Equipping providers to deliver care that meets patients’ wide range of language and cultural needs.
Advocatia is pleased and proud to be identified as an innovator in helping drive patient engagement.
