Analytic Support FY16-17- Maternal and Infant Health Initiative

Grants and Contracts Details


The purpose of the Medicaid Analytic Support Project is to support evaluation and improvements in the effectiveness and quality of services delivered to Medicaid and KCHIP beneficiaries. The Adult Medicaid Quality: Improving Maternal and Infant Health Outcomes CHIP grant through the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services is focused on using data analytics to inform policy decisions regarding unintended pregnancies, particularly in Appalachia where poverty is more prevalent and educational attainment is lower when compared to the rest of the state. In collaboration with the Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services (KDMS), Managed Care Organizations (MCOs), and the Department of Public Health (DPH), KDMS is utilizing data analytics to inform policy decisions to improve maternal health. KDMS and DPH coordinates data collection through the MCOs responsible for quality measures, efficiency in expenditures, and increasing access to care for its members. Analysis on the measures will be conducted and we will coordinate measure submissions to CMS.
