Linking & Merging Data Sources

A CMS Webinar

The September webinar entitled “Linking & Merging Data Sources” will discuss merging Substance Use Disorder (SUD) related data sources with other state databases. Specifically, it will discuss how using  different data sources can provide additional insight on a patient’s  continuum of care when services are paid for by Medicaid and other state agencies. There will be three featured state partners on the webinar panel to discuss their efforts to actively link or merge data and field your questions. 

On this webinar:

  • Connecticut will discuss how it is using distributed data networks to answer questions about their SUD population demographics, care outcomes and costs;
  • Washington will discuss how it has designed meaningful measurement concepts that enable policy analyses, program evaluations, predictive modeling and performance management; and
  • Oregon will share how it developed a system to combine SUD  block grant  data with  Medicaid claims data to analyze treatment outcomes  and share information with providers.
