Medicaid Agency-State Public University Partnership: The Value Proposition for Medicaid Agencies
This one-pager provides an overview of the benefits of state-university partnerships.
In many states, Medicaid agencies are partnering with research centers at public universities to conduct data-driven policy analysis and support program development, monitoring, and evaluation. AcademyHealth manages the State-University Partnership Learning Network (SUPLN) to support active partnerships in more than 20 states. These state–university partnerships offer unique advantages as states strive to serve as laboratories of policy innovation and address the many challenges facing Medicaid programs today, including the opioid crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic. Public universities can offer state agencies in-depth research and policy expertise in medicine, public health, public policy, data science, economics, and other disciplines.
