How Arizona Used HIE Data to Advance Health Equity for the American Indian Population

Room 1 (Salon H,I,J,K,L)
American Indian communities in Arizona face significant health disparities, including high rates of diabetes, which are compounded by lack of available data to track outcomes. To address this problem, Arizona’s Medicaid agency, the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), partnered with Arizona’s health information exchange, Contexture, to incentivize providers to exchange data with the HIE to be used to improve clinical quality measures for its American Indian Health Program (AIHP).
This session will present data and findings that demonstrate how AHCCCS used HIE data to measure diabetes control for its AIHP population and how the data can be used to enhance care coordination that improves health outcomes.
