Virtual Discussion: Do Providers Who Care for a Large Share of Medicaid Patients Provide Better Care for this Population?

September 17, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Join us for a virtual discussion on Thursday, September 17th, from 9 – 10:30 am. This interactive event will feature CIVHC, National Bureau of Economic Research’s (NBER), and local partners to discuss research results exploring the differences in quality of care for providers who serve primarily Medicaid or Commercial patients.

The results are part of a larger study by the NBER’s Center of Excellence in collaboration with several national organizations including Harvard Medical and Business Schools and the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement. Using data from four state all payer claims databases, including Colorado’s, the goal is to understand if providers specialize in caring for patient populations covered by Medicaid or commercial payers.

The researchers on the project will be joined by members of the Colorado health care community to dive into the results of the analysis, discuss potential drivers of the findings, as well as potential effects of payer specialization in the quality of care provided for the treated populations.

Confirmed panelists include:

  • Beth Neuhalfen, Associate Director of Quality and Operations, Denver Health
  • Bebe Kleinman, MNM, Chief Executive Officer, Doctors Care
  • William Wright, MD, Program Medical Director, Colorado Access
  • Cristen Bates, MPH, Senior Advisor of Affordability Partnerships, Department of Health Care Policy and Financing

We are also looking forward to hearing from you as a valued stakeholder and part of our health care community!
