Altarum Institute is a subcontractor to Mathematica Policy Research for the Oral Health Initiative, which supports state efforts to improve access to health care for children enrolled in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Altarum provides subject matter expertise in support of the development of State Oral Health Action Plans and the development of performance improvement projects.

As part of its work on this project, Altarum developed a tool designed to (1) help states assess whether a specific intervention is feasible to undertake and (2) outline the action steps needed to undertake the intervention.
