Researchers in the University of Delaware Center for Community Research and Service, Center for Drug and Health Studies and Department of Sociology are partnering with researchers at the University of Maryland, College Park on a systematic, mixed-methods evaluation of the Delaware Contraceptive Access Now (DEL-CAN) intervention which aims to reduce unintended pregnancies, reduce Medicaid costs for unintended pregnancies, and support policy development that enables contraceptive access to all women who desire it. The evaluation is designed to understand the DEL-CAN Plans effectiveness and cost-effectiveness, and to derive lessons about mechanisms leading to initial and sustained impacts in Delaware, and to impacts that are generalizable to other states. A five-year evaluation period, 2016 to 2021, is planned and the use of Medicaid transactions data will play an important part in the project.

CCRS is involved in two projects focused on measuring opioid metrics within Delaware. The first project is a multi-state collaboration lead by AcademyHealth State University Partnership Learning Network (SUPLN) using a distributed research network (DRN) model (MODRN). In all participating states, the Medicaid Medical Director participates in the steering committee which defines appropriate metrics.
