State of Rhode Island
Geographic Reach: Rhode Island
Over the next 6 months, the State of Rhode Island will receive up to $1,631,042 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.
Rhode Island intends to develop a model that builds upon the patient-centered medical home initiative and focuses on a community-centered delivery system. The model will leverage the opportunities provided by the state's Health Benefits Exchange and Medicaid initiatives. Planning activities will facilitate a multi-stakeholder process to review current state payment and delivery system reform initiatives; identify data sources and baseline data for outcomes measures and financial analysis; and identify policy lever changes available and needed to effectuate the State Health Care Innovation Plan. The resulting plan will define strategy and mechanisms for moving Rhode Island’s health care delivery system to a value-driven, community-based, and patient centered system.
