One of the largest Medicaid health plans in the U.S. looks to Elsevier's MEDai to help control costs, coordinate care and improve the health of its member population
Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced successful implementation of a three-year analytics software licensing contract with Molina Healthcare, Inc., of Long Beach, CA.

Molina Healthcare selected Elsevier's MEDai Navigator, which will help Molina manage its Medicaid populations across nine states, totaling more than 1.8 million people.

"We believe that Elsevier's analytic solutions will support our focus on member and clinician engagements and improve measurement and quality of care for our members," said Richard Sanchez, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Molina Healthcare. "We need a comprehensive, reliable solution and are confident we have found it with MEDai Navigator."
MEDai Navigator is able to analyze Molina's Medicaid population state-by-state and perform mapping, formatting and intelligent data clean-up and analytic modeling.
