To help Medicaid stakeholders identify interventions with the potential to both improve quality and reduce health care costs, the Center for Health Care Strategies engaged Mathematica Policy Research to conduct a review of published quality improvement studies that reported cost or utilization outcomes. The resulting ROI Evidence Base includes a selection of studies for clinical conditions of high priority within Medicaid populations, including asthma, congestive heart failure, depression, diabetes, and high-risk pregnancy. Studies are categorized: (1) by clinical condition and (2) by whether reported outcomes indicate decreases or increases in cost and utilization.

Users may browse the ROI Evidence Base to assess the relevance of included studies based on intervention strategies, target population characteristics, intervention settings, and overall study quality.
