KPMG is pleased to participate in the annual Medicaid Enterprise Systems Conference, MESC 2021, taking place on August 9th – August 12th. The conference brings together state, federal, and private sector thought leaders to exchange ideas related to Medicaid systems and health policy affected by those systems. 

Join KPMG for an insightful industry session

Please join KPMG for a dynamic industry session on Medicaid Enterprise Systems (MES) modernization journeys—the challenges, approaches, lessons learned, and more—featuring powerful insights from state panelists into their unique modernization journeys.

Medicaid Modernization: What does your journey look like?
Tuesday, August 10th | 2:40 PM EDT – 3:30 PM EDT | Room 309

State panelists will provide insights into their MES modernization journeys – how they chose their modernization approach, what wins they have achieved, and where their MES efforts ran into challenges. State modernization journeys are not a one-sized fits all approach, and requires alignment with many varied operational dependencies, stakeholders, policy requirements, to-be business processes, information transfers, and technical requirements. The shared lessons from states in various stages of MES modernization will help participants define their unique MES strategy and approach, and will include representation from:

  • Mike Wirth, Managing Director, U.S. Medicaid Transformation Lead, KPMG LLP
  • Everton Heron, Director of Product Development and Technology, Division of TennCare, State of Tennessee
  • David Whitham, Assistant Chief Information Officer for Health and Eligibility and Chief Information Officer for Medicaid, Executive Office of Health and Human Services, Commonwealth of Massachusetts
  • Kate Dickens, Health and Government Solutions, KPMG LLP

Stop by the KPMG booth or demo room

Stop by booth 301 or visit us in demo room 307 to connect with our team. We will be highlighting how we help states streamline their unique Medicaid modernization journeys through a business-driven approach to deliver better outcomes. Additionally, we are excited to provide demonstrations of our innovative enablers, including our KERA Online and KRIS Connected platforms.
