The DHHS Divisions of Medicaid and Long-term Care, and Behavioral Health, entered into a contract with Magellan on July 1, 2008. The Divisions continue to work on building effective working relationships with all contract and DHHS partners and obtain data to manage the Behavioral Health system in order to achieve positive consumer outcomes.

The Divisions continue to work towards implementing a data-driven approach to managing the service system. This development and implementation process takes collaboration, ongoing communication and perseverance. The Magellan Partnership Quality Improvement Team (MQIT) has been established to help accomplish the goals.

Goals of MQIT Include:

  • Improving communication and coordination between the three Divisions, Regions, Providers, Consumers, Families and Magellan.
  • Developing an understanding of the work flow, systems and processes related to data and making recommendations for improvement.
  • Establishing a mechanism for the identification, review and resolution of issues.
  • Reviewing reports and recommending content and format improvements to ensure the presentation of meaningful data.
