Data Management, Analysis & Integrity Unit

What We Do

The Data Management and Integrity Unit provides data analysis, distribution of Medicaid data extracts to contractors, reporting to regulatory agencies, the legislature, and other stakeholders. We deliver: mandatory federal reporting to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS); routine Vermont Healthcare Claims Uniform Reporting and Evaluations System (VHCURES) data feeds; the annual Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Sets (HEDIS) data extracts for performance measurement reporting; weekly medical and pharmacy claims files and monthly eligibility records to support Care Coordination for the Vermont Chronic Care Initiative (VCCI) and the Vermont Medicaid Next Generation Pilot Project - a risk-based program between the DVHA and OneCare Vermont an accountable care organization. In addition, we provide ad hoc data analysis for internal DVHA divisions and other AHS departments and state agencies. These requests include Public Record Requests (PRR) which are managed by the Legal Unit and are forwarded to the Data Unit as deemed necessary.

Who We Serve

We serve a variety of internal DVHA units, partnering AHS departments, additional state agencies, and external contractors/vendors working on behalf of DVHA with access to and an understanding of information regarding the implementation of Medicaid policies and programs.

How We Impact

We serve as experts on researching and mining data, statistical analysis, and reporting on mandated state and federal requirements. We are accountable for producing and understandable display of quantitative information to colleagues and decision makers using modern databases and sophisticated statistical, mapping and reporting software. We are responsible for recording, preserving, validating and updating the methodologies, syntax, queries and directives for each analysis, extract and final product.
