Speakers include:
  • Elizabeth Lukanen, Deputy Director of the State Health Access Reform Evaluation (SHARE), will be discussing monitoring and evaluation plans related to health reform implementation for several states. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) will have far-reaching effects on health insurance coverage, health care financing, and delivery in the United States.  Because the ACA is being implemented in different ways across states, it will be important to carefully measure its impact not just at the national level, but at the state level as well. Ms. Lukanen will discuss various issues related to the development of an ACA monitoring/evaluation framework and highlight states that have made progress in this area.
  • Stefan Gildemeister, Director, Health Economics Program, MDH and Alisha Baines Simon, Senior Researcher, Health Economics Program, MDH will provide an overview of the Minnesota Health Access Survey, which monitors health insurance coverage in Minnesota, and how the survey is used to monitor Minnesota’s health care market, inform policy makers, and evaluate health reform implementation.  They will discuss the use of the survey as a pre-ACA baseline for monitoring health system outcomes.  Finally, they will talk about the methodological and data challenges with this work, and potential solutions.
  • Jan Malcolm, CEO of Courage Center: While health reform remains hotly debated in many ways, there is largely consensus now that we need to “pay for value”, and strive for the “triple aim” of better health outcomes, increased satisfaction and lower cost. These core concepts are all about evidence of effectiveness, and that calls for robust evaluation at many levelsundefinedindividual, programmatic, organizational, and population or community. Ms. Malcolm will be discussing these core concepts in light of the Affordable Care Act.
