The annual Medicaid Enterprise Systems Conference (formerly known as the MMIS Conference) brings together thought leaders from the public and private sectors to share ideas and information related to Medicaid systems and initiatives.
The conference has been in existence since the nineteen-nineties and has recently grown to an attendance of approximately fourteen hundred attendees in 2012. States volunteer to host the event and work with a committee of Federal, State and private sector individuals to plan and execute the conference. Over the past eight years, the conferences have been held in Providence, Rhode Island; San Diego, California; Nashville, Tennessee; Chicago, Illinois; Portland, Oregon; Austin, Texas; Boston, Massachusetts and Charleston, South Carolina. The 2014 Medicaid Enterprise Systems Conference will be held in Denver, Colorado.
The MESC is coordinated by the New England States Consortium Systems Organization (NESCSO). NESCSO is a non-profit corporation organized by the six New England Health and Human services agencies and the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The mission of the organization is to foster communication and collaboration among members through information sharing and joint projects.
