As part of its continued service mission to New Jersey, the Center uses its considerable data analytic capacity to support policy decision making in New Jersey , This grant provides resources for CSHP to continue its work: 1) supporting rapid turnaround policy analysis and expert consultation for NJ policy decision makers; 2) advancing the Culture of Health (CoH) perspective in pursuit of the Center’s mission; 3) maintaining and expanding the Center’s core data infrastructure, with a focus on data linkages to enable the study of the social determinants of health; and 4) enhancing strategic communication and translation of research findings and other information of importance to health policy development in the state.

Support for Development of the New Jersey Medicaid Office of Business Intelligence
New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services
The NJ Medicaid program established its Office of Business Intelligence to improve its capacity to conduct rapid analyses of importance for the development of innovations in Medicaid. To help accomplish this goal, the NJ Medicaid agency engaged CSHP to assist in the development, staffing, and operations of the Business Intelligence Unit. This assistance expands the current data analytic capabilities of Medicaid and enables it to rapidly identify and address emerging trends relevant to Medicaid beneficiaries to develop actionable intelligence on ways to improve quality of care and improve program efficiency within the NJ FamilyCare (Medicaid) population. CSHP is recruiting, training, and mentoring/supervising data analysts who are deployed to the Medicaid BIU. The Center is also providing research technical assistance to the Medicaid team. Over time, this project will also enhance capacity for Medicaid analytics within CSHP as well as the Medicaid agency.
