IMI’s Newest Fellow to Help Lead Groundbreaking Research into Medicaid Enrollment Forms

 

Washington, DC- The Institute for Medicaid Innovation (IMI), a non-profit, nonpartisan research and policy organization, is pleased to announce that Rebecca Landucci, MPH, has joined the DC-based team as a health policy and research fellow. Landucci brings with her a wealth of experience working with Medicaid as a value-based program manager at Amerihealth Caritas DC.  She will be continuing IMI’s initial work on social determinants of health data collection on the state Medicaid enrollment forms by assessing the readability of items. Read more about Landucci below.

Rebecca Landucci, MPH will be leading a project to analyze the readability of state Medicaid enrollment forms across all 50 states and DC.  She will also explore the potential for data interoperability at the federal, state, community, and provider levels in order to better serve the Medicaid population.  IMI released the first part of this landmark study in January in its report, “Social Needs Data in the State Medicaid Enrollment Form: A Content Analysis.” Landucci received a degree in Business and Accounting from Lebanon Valley College and completed her masters in public health at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania. In addition to her fellowship at IMI, Landucci also works as the value-based program manager at Amerihealth Caritas DC. There, she transitions provider contracts from traditional fee-for-service to new approaches that emphasize the total cost-of-care and helps providers manage their panels in a wholistic manner.
