State Medicaid officials are now tracking upper respiratory infections, perinatal care, and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
In a monthly email update, Selig says they will use the results to reward efficient doctors, improve the quality of care and lower costs.
Selig also says his department has applied for a $60 million State Innovative Model Testing grant.
Spokesperson Amy Webb says Arkansas is better positioned than many states because the Natural State is already implementing changes instead of just making plans and proposals.
Webb says the department's goal isn't just to curb rising costs for Arkansans receiving care.
"We think they will get really high quality care, they will get better care; hopefully be healthier and have better health outcomes," Webb said.
