This initiative is building an infrastructure for robust data analytics, and integrating and aligning federal and state data sources, to support data-driven policy decisions about Medicaid and CHIP policy and programs.
We are a leader in helping public agencies use their administrative databases to evaluate, monitor, and design programs for vulnerable populations. We create large-scale insurance databases for Medicaid, SCHIP, and Medicare and design systems so they can be used easily for research. We also have extensive experience merging administrative data sets built from Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) records, birth certificates, and Medicaid and Social Security data to study important policy concerns while ensuring data security and confidentiality. Our results are summarized in user-friendly chartbooks and tables, and the data files are used extensively by researchers.
