The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light weaknesses and disparities within our nation’s healthcare infrastructure, creating an urgent need for smart and innovative solutions that can improve health outcomes for more than 170 million Americans with Medicare, Medicaid, and Marketplace coverage.
Join this session to learn more about how the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) plan to meet emerging challenges. Find out how technology and data can support and strengthen the agency’s six strategic pillars: 1) advancing health equity; 2) building on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and expanding access; 3) engaging partners and communities; 4) driving innovation; 5) protecting sustainability; and 6) fostering a positive and inclusive workplace and workforce.
Potential topics include:
- How CMS is improving health equity and coverage across the 3M’s (Medicare, Medicaid, and Marketplace)
- How data can positively impact Social Determinants of Health, advance health equity, and guide waivers that were implemented for long-term benefit to beneficiaries
- What new solutions were used to transition to virtual work and how operations will be maintained in this new environment
- Since the pandemic, which projects have brought in the highest ROI and what’s on the horizon.
