NAMD Releases New Medicaid Data Access Paper

May 17, 2012

On May 1, the National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD) released the second paper in its Working Paper Series, entitled “Advancing Medicare and Medicaid Integration: An Update on Improving State Access to Medicare Data.”

The paper makes three overarching requests NAMD says will improve states’ ongoing access to sources of Medicare data:

  1. To continue working with CMS to streamline current processes;
  2. To receive additional technical assistance and training in order to maximize the utility and application of data; and
  3. To provide access to additional Medicare data sets to facilitate care coordination and improve the quality of care.
