Southeast Michigan Beacon Community (SEMBC)
In September, 2010, ONC awarded SEMBC funding as one of 17 Beacon Community Cooperative Agreement Program grantees. The Beacon Program supports each community by building and strengthening their health information technology (health IT) infrastructure and exchange capabilities:
to improve care coordination and quality outcomes
increase the quality of care
slow the growth of health care spending
The mission of the SouthEast Michigan Beacon Community project is “To improve Diabetes Mellitus (DM) care and associated outcomes in our medically underserved and disadvantaged community — while reducing costs.”
Mosaica Partners worked closely with the SEMBC team in the writing of the Grant Proposal to ONC. Now that the grant has been awarded, Mosaica Partners is providing advice and counsel to the project – including Program Management support - to help ensure a successful Beacon effort.
State of Arizona
The State of Arizona Government Information Technology Agency (GITA) partners with state agencies and private sector organizations to improve technical and human information technology capabilities, to efficiently add value and improve delivery of public services for the people of Arizona.
Mosaica Partners assisted GITA in the writing of their Request for Grant (RFG) for the purpose of providing planning grants to a number of rural areas in the state that had a desire to develop a regional health information organization (RHIO).Subsequently, Mosaica assisted GITA by writing the State's RHIO Formation Guide and consulted with each of the organizations that had been awarded a grant to assist them through the initial planning process.
Electronic Health Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC)
EHNAC is an independent not-for-profit accrediting agency. EHNAC's function is to promote administrative simplification, cost savings and to establish standards and accreditation of entities handling personal health information (PHI) as defined by HIPAA, throughout the healthcare industry and other industries that deal with PHI related issues and considerations.
When considering alternatives as part of its regular planning process, Mosaica Partners was commissioned by EHNAC to conduct a research project and prepare a report recommending various strategies to consider.
M2Gen is the result of a research collaboration formed in December 2006 between H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute and drug maker Merck & Co. The for-profit company will develop personalized cancer treatments for patients using molecular technology. Researchers will collect tumor tissues from thousands of patients across Florida and other states and identify the biological markers unique to each tumor. Analyzing patients’ responses to specific treatments will lead to more individualized care aimed at providing rapid improvement with fewer side effects.
Mosaica Partners was engaged to provide technical and strategic support related to the operation and planned growth of M2Gen.

Mosaica has assisted MHCC by preparing a number of reports on various aspects of health information exchange in Maryland.Contents of some of the reports were used by MHCC in recommendations to the State Legislature.
