State of Michigan
Geographic Reach: Michigan
Funding Amount: $1,653,705
Over the next 6 months, the State of Michigan will receive up to $1,653,705 to develop its State Health Care Innovation Plan. Funding will be subject to successful completion of the terms and conditions for the State Innovation Model initiative.
Michigan’s proposed design process will focus on transforming service delivery and payment models in four foundational areas: Patient/family-centered health homes; coordination and accountability of the Medical Neighborhood; a care-bridge to behavioral health and long-term care; and integration between and among healthcare and community resources, including the Pathways Community Hub model. The state will facilitate alignment of program elements and outcome metrics across payers, prioritize investments in health information exchange and data analytic capacity, incorporate commitment to population health in line with the National Quality Strategy, and identify policy and other levers to support future implementation. Michigan aims to develop the infrastructure to prepare the state for rapid testing, roll-out, and monitoring of the plan following the design period.
