This session explores the developments in blockchain technology, its relationship to the Medicaid IT Architecture (MITA) and discusses practical approaches to integration, including the use of APIs and microservices for improving transactions.

Panelists will also discuss how states could potentially leverage the alignment of CMS frameworks for HIE Maturity and MITA as an opportunity to introduce blockchain technology as a foundation for innovation in supporting Medicaid interoperability, beneficiary engagement, and incentivization models.
