Task Order (MRAD)
The purpose of this task order is to produce person level data files on Medicaid eligibility, service utilization and payment information to support Comparative Effectiveness Research that is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). As a component of the ARRA, CMS has been approved by the Department of Health and Human Services to produce and enhance the Medicaid Analytic eXtract file (MAX. This task order allows the continuation of transforming Medicaid Statistical Information System (MSIS) data into Medicaid Analytic eXtract (MAX) data which merges Medicaid demographic and claims information as well as converts fiscal year quarters into a calendar year. The purpose of MAX is to organize Medicaid data and make it usable for researchers to support research and policy analysis on Medicaid populations. In addition to producing MAX data, the contractor will also design, develop, and establish an early release version of MAX data identified in this task as "Beta MAX" so that researchers may obtain Medicaid data more timely for Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER). This task order also provides options to continue major activities that enhance MAX data.
