Feedback Needed on 12 New Episodes from the Ohio Department of Medicaid

The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) has reached out to the Ohio AAP as they are looking to identify providers who are interested in offering feedback on 12 episodes newly included in September 2017 reports in order to help with improving episode design.

Those 12 episodes include:

  • Pediatric acute lower respiratory infection (LRI)
  • Otitis media
  • Tonsillectomy
  • Cardiac valve
  • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG)
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF) exacerbation
  • Headache
  • Low back pain (LBP)
  • Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA)
  • Hysterectomy
  • Pancreatitis
  • Skin and soft tissue infections

During a comment session at ODM in the first half of November, ODM will provide an overview of each episode and gather provider feedback in a small group discussion. Prior to the meeting, ODM will provide all of the final logistical details & expectations for feedback, and send out any materials for review in advance. They would like to get at least 15-20 unique perspectives per episode. Design changes will be shared along with future reports.

If you are interested, please contact Melissa Wervey Arnold, Ohio AAP CEO, via email with your email and the episode(s) of interest. Melissa will pass your contact information along to ODM. ODM will subsequently reach out to you with a formal invite.
