Medicaid, like nearly every other sector, is facing staff burnout following two-plus years of the pandemic. Recruiting Medicaid staff presents unique challenges since it can be highly technical work, but can be used as an opportunity to build a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive work culture. This new episode of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange podcast explores the inner workings of Medicaid’s workforce recovery and the opportunity to build a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive work culture.
This episode is hosted by Gretchen Hammer, former Colorado Medicaid director and principal at the Public Leadership Group. She is joined by Mark Larson, former Vermont Medicaid director and senior vice president of leadership and capacity building at the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS); Elizabeth Matney, Iowa Medicaid director; and Phil Burrell, deputy administrator for the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services Division of Health Care Financing and Policy.
Medicaid Leadership Exchange is a podcast series exploring priority topics for Medicaid leaders developed in partnership with NAMD and the Center for Health Care Strategies through support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
