Bailit Health has assisted over 150 clients since 1997 to improve methods for purchasing or regulating health and human services. A partial listing of these clients can be found below, as well as examples of the types of work that we have conducted for them.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation
Study the landscape of payment reform in Massachusetts and how the use of alternative payment models are affecting safety–net providers.
Bailit conducted primary research with over 23 interviews of health plans and providers, to identify the characteristics of alternative payment models in use in the state and specifically how safety–net providers are responding to new forms of payment. Bailit published a report detailing findings and a set of recommendations on how to better support safety–net providers to successfully adapt to new forms of payment.
Identify specific Massachusetts government policy, licensing and reimbursement barriers to behavioral and physical health integration and create a report that includes possible responses.
To identify barriers, Bailit conducted a literature review, interviewed subject matter experts and held a focus group of Massachusetts providers. Based on the findings, Bailit created a report that will be used by the Foundation to set future policy direction. Click here to access the report.
California Division of Health Care Services
Assist California's Medicaid agency in using evidence to reduce the overuse and misuse of health care services.
Bailit conducted a literature review, first–hand interviews and policy analysis on state efforts at reducing the overuse and misuse of non–effective and sometimes harmful health care services, to inform a customized report for the state of California. Bailit used its deep knowledge of California's Medi–Cal program to tailor the findings.
