MSDA Best Practices Criteria
The Division of Best Practices (BP) has developed sound, relevant criteria to assess programs, initiatives, and policies related to Medicaid/CHIP Oral Health Program. This criteria will serve as a tool for state programs to gauge the level of impact of strategies related to program quality.

MSDA Best Practices Criteria
The Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS): 
MSDA and CHCS are leading a two year (2013-2015) learning collaborative, working with seven State Medicaid Programs, in order to achieve the CMS Oral Health Initiative goals. 

MSDA is collaborating with CHCS in their efforts to lead a two year (2013-2015) learning collaborative. Seven State Medicaid Programs are working with CHCS and MSDA through a learning collaborative to address common challenges, consider strategic options, share best practices, and to receive technical assistance in achieving the CMS Oral Health Initiative goals.

MSDA staff is available to provide technical assistance for states participating in this learning collaborative.  MSDA’s BP Criteria and as well as the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Domain Framework for Quality Measures will be incorporated into the State's improvement strategies.
