States have a variety of metrics and data sources that potentially can be used to assess and improve population health outcomes. In order to maximize this potential, states need effective strategies to collect, analyze, integrate, and use data from various sources, and to share it across multiple agencies and health care organizations for activities that drive improvement for all populations. This webinar will feature an overview of provisions in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that place new emphasis on data to promote health equity and improve health outcomes. This webinar will also feature a discussion by three states that have taken innovative approaches in using data to drive meaningful changes in health outcomes and health equity. Maryland will discuss its Community Integrated Medical Home Initiative and Health Enterprise Zones, Ohio will describe its partnership between Medicaid health plans and public health agencies for using data to improve health equity, and Louisiana will highlight how it uses various data sources to improve birth outcomes. Following the panel discussion webinar participants will have an opportunity to ask questions of the presenters.
