This year’s Medicaid Enterprise Systems Community (MESC) Conference featured a session that explored the social determinants of health (SDOH) and how organizations can use multiple data sources to address disparities in healthcare. Our President and Co-founder, Dr. Ryan Bosch, participated in this virtual panel on August 12, 2021.
Dr. Bosch was joined by Verlon Johnson, Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategy, at CNSI, and Cheryl Powell, Senior Principal, Medicare | Medicaid Coverage, Payment & Equity at MITRE. This expert-led discussion examined the Biden administration’s priorities around Medicaid coverage, value-based payments, and health equity, and the impact these initiatives have on decisions and investments in technology. The participants also discussed how states need access to more innovative technology that will continue the process of engendering trust, building health literacy, and eventually leading to better care and outcomes.
