CMS Increases Public Access to Medicaid and CHIP Data

first_imgThe Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) today released for the first time its research-ready Transformed Medicaid Statistical Information System (T-MSIS) data. Today’s release reverses years of a lack of access to Medicaid and CHIP data. These data provide key information, including information on utilization and spending under Medicaid managed care, and are needed to enable research and analysis to improve quality of care, assess beneficiary care costs and enrollment and improve program integrity. External researchers can obtain access to T-MSIS data by submitting a request to the CMS Research Data Assistance Center (ResDAC) and signing a CMS data use agreement containing strict beneficiary privacy and data security requirements.  To learn more visit the ResDAC website: https://www.resdac.org/. “The research community and stakeholders will have a powerful tool to provide creative solutions on Medicaid and CHIP healthcare delivery, outcomes, and financing,” said CMS Administrator Seema Verma. Image above shows a screen grab from the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services website. Over the last five years, CMS and states have worked to improve the quality and integrity of the data states submitted to T-MSIS. The federal agency said this “historic” data release is a milestone in CMS’s commitment in promoting transparency and accountability in the Medicaid program.last_img read more

Shipping risk map launched

first_imgRiskMap explained that it automatically analyses thousands of news articles every day, by assessing the threat posed, classifying the risk and identifying the location. It then automatically summarises articles of interest by selecting the most important information that is relevant to the event. The risks identified represent issues surrounding security, health and migration and can include anything from earthquakes to conflict updates.”This is a real game changer, not only for ship owners and managers, but anyone who deals with the movement of equipment or humans,” said James Morgan, IT developer at RiskMap Intelligence. “It provides them with one source for getting an instant picture of what’s going on in a particular place. It’s a platform that gives you the intelligence you need to build risk assessments.”The website includes a world map with dots displayed on each country that users can click to find out the risks or threats they represent. Users can also access information on the ports and view the services available at those locations. Countries are allocated a colour on the map that represents how high or low risk it is, with the highest risk countries being displayed in red.RiskMap Intelligence, part of The Marshals Group (TMG), has been under development over the last two years.Morgan added: “A lot of our clients were demanding risk assessments linked to piracy on both the east and west coasts of Africa. We started collecting information and developed an internal system where we stored everything. But we soon realised its potential, so we decided to set it up as its own brand, under its own company and launch it to the public.”www.riskmap.comlast_img read more

Petrobras Signs Agreement in Principle to Settle Class Action in the…

first_img Author: Priyanka Ann Saini Petrobras announced yesterday that it has signed an agreement in principle to settle the securities class action lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.The agreement, which is subject to approval by the court, is intended to resolve all pending and prospective claims by purchasers of Petrobras securities in the United States and by purchasers of Petrobras securities that are listed for trading in the United States. It eliminates the risk of an adverse judgment which, as Petrobras has previously reported, could have a material adverse effect on the company and its financial situation, and puts an end to the uncertainties, burdens and costs of protracted litigation.Under the proposed settlement, Petrobras has agreed to pay USD 2.95 billion to resolve claims in two installments of USD 983 million and a last installment of USD 984 million. The first installment will be paid within 10 days of preliminary approval of the settlement by the court. The second installment will be paid within 10 days of final approval of the settlement. The third installment will be paid by the later of (i) six months after final approval, or (ii) January 15, 2019.  The total settlement amount will be recognised in the fourth quarter of 2017.The agreement does not constitute any admission of wrongdoing or misconduct by Petrobras. In the agreement, Petrobras expressly denies liability. This reflects its status as a victim of the acts uncovered by Operation Car Wash, as recognised by Brazilian authorities including the Brazilian Supreme Court.  As a victim of the scheme, Petrobras has already recovered R$1.475 billion in restitution in Brazil and will continue to pursue all available legal remedies from culpable companies and individuals.The agreement is in the company’s best interest and that of its shareholders, given the risks of a verdict advised by a jury, particularities of US procedure and securities laws, as well its assessment of the status of the class action and the nature of such litigation in the United States, where only approximately 0.3% of securities-related class actions proceed to trial.The agreement will now be submitted to the district court in the SDNY for review. If preliminary approval is granted, the court will notify the members of the class of the terms of the proposed settlement. After considering any objections and a hearing on the fairness of the proposed settlement, the court will decide whether to grant final approval.As a result of the agreement, the parties will ask the United States Supreme Court to defer consideration of Petrobras’s petition for a writ of certiorari, which was scheduled for January 5, 2018, pending final approval of the proposed settlement.Sea News, January 4last_img read more
