This State Data Spotlight describes Rhode Island's Health Indicator System for Medicaid enrollees. The Rhode Island Medicaid Research and Evaluation Project uses existing public health data, Medicaid administrative data and state-level survey data to actively inform program activities and evaluation.
The Health Indicator System was established by the state in 1999 to monitor and evaluate health services within the Medicaid program, and also to provide a useful framework for data collection for all Rhode Islanders. They system helps policymakers identify how specific Medicaid interventions have impacted the health status of enrollees, and is used to inform future initiatives and interventions. January 2012
