Driving Healthcare’s Digital Transformation—from Vision to Execution

Can providers reengineer a program long criticized for its waste, inefficiency and lackluster health outcomes? The Medicaid Transformation Project pools the expertise of 17 healthcare systems that represent five percent of the nation’s hospitals to tackle issues like behavioral health, women and infant care, substance abuse and avoidable ED visits. Anchoring the project are systems like Advocate Aurora, Dignity, Geisinger, Baylor, Scott and White and Providence St. Joseph. But how effectively has the Transformation Project revamped Medicaid? Listen in as our panelists discuss these key issues:


  • How the project has achieved inroads in the adoptions of shared digital solutions and care models

  • How the project has brought down barriers to care and improved community health

  • How the involvement of health systems, Avia and Town Hall Ventures contributed to project results. What are the implications for other collaborations?

  • What the project teaches about the refinement, deepening and sharing of healthcare innovations with systems throughout the country

  • The lessons learned—from needs assessment and implementation, to facilitating collaboration and tracking results

  • How the project will continue its decade-long journey to reform Medicaid and ensure population health
