(2) Improve tracking of Dual Eligible status and utilization through discrete, consistent identification/tagging of data related to all types of Duals, by Dual Eligible categories. (3) Consolidate existing extracts to reduce the number of partially to fully redundant interfaces, therefore producing savings. (4) Initiate timely state data submissions for more reliable statistical analysis. (5) Consolidate an analytical engine to satisfy multiple CMS, states, and other federal partner user needs.
