States have collaborated to manage their Medicaid administrative and service spending more effectively through a variety of approaches, including learning collaboratives, joint purchasing arrangements, and shared services agreements.
In order to better understand the dynamics that motivate states to seek partners and the factors that contribute to success or create barriers to such partnerships, MACPAC asked Rhonda Anderson, director of the Drug Review Effectiveness Project at the Oregon Health and Science University and Elena Nicollela, executive director of the New England States Consortium Systems Organization to discuss their respective state collaboration models. The first model is designed to develop and share clinical evidence and the second model provides a forum for both information sharing and joint operational activities.
