Commonwealth Medicine enhances the services we offer by drawing on the expertise of our affiliates. We often collaborate with two UMass Medical School nonprofits: UHealthSolutions and the New England States Consortium Systems Organization.
Health care management
UHealthSolutions offers program management and consulting services to public and private organizations. This health care management organization facilitates the development of real-world policy and program solutions that benefit public health by
- Offering Medicare Part D services
- Administering a state pharmacy assistance program
- Operating a member and provider services call center
Regional collaboration on health policies and programs
The New England States Consortium Systems Organization (NESCSO) is a nonprofit corporation organized by the six Departments of Health and Human Services in New England and UMass Medical School.
NESCSO fosters communication and collaboration among members by sharing information and facilitating joint projects. The organization also provides a framework for knowledge exchange, with the goal of maximizing the cost-effectiveness of policies and programs throughout the region.
With the support of UMass Medical School and Commonwealth Medicine, NESCSO is working with member states to develop a new tool for comparative data analysis supporting regional Medicaid initiatives.
