Medicaid Enterprise Systems Conference (MESC)

08/17/15 - 08/20/15

Des Moines, IA

BerryDunn was thrilled to once again participate as presenters, sponsors and exhibitors at MESC 2015 in Des Moines, Iowa.


BerryDunn was a proud sponsor of the MESC 2015 Cyber Café, which helped attendees stay connected throughout the conference.


Thanks to all who joined us on Tuesday evening at the Des Moines Embassy Club. Guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails with panoramic views atop Des Moines’ second-tallest building. We also ventured to the world-famous Iowa State Fair where we witnessed first-rate arm wrestling and deep fried Oreos.

MITA 360

The MITA 3.0 SS-A was a key focus area for many at this year’s conference. BerryDunn can help you gain value from your SS-A beyond compliance. To learn more about our MITA 360 lifecycle management approach, contact Debbie Lemmon.
