Development of Statewide Health Equity Data Standards in Massachusetts
On Thursday, March 23, State Health and Value Strategies will host a webinar that will review the recent adoption of statewide health equity data standards for the collection of self-reported patient demographic information by provider organizations, Medicaid and commercial insurers in Massachusetts. During the webinar, experts from MassHealth (Massachusetts Medicaid) and Bailit Health will review the adopted standards as well as a complementary framework for introducing accountability for advancing health equity into value-based contracting. Panelists will also describe how Massachusetts engaged a wide array of stakeholders in the development process and the plan for dissemination and adoption. The webinar will include a question and answer session for participants.
