IPRO VP Chosen for National Medicaid Expert Panel

IPRO Vice President Virginia Hill has been selected to serve on an expert panel that will advise the federal government on developing a Medicaid managed care quality rating system. A federal rule published last May authorized the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to create the rating system. The Technical Expert Panel convened by project consultant Booz Allen Hamilton will meet this summer and spring in Washington D.C. and will include representatives of Medicaid agencies, health plans, consumers, providers, and quality measurement organizations. Under Ms. Hill’s leadership, IPRO’s Managed Care Department now provides external quality assessment services to nine states across the U.S. as well as Puerto Rico.
