Sanford Health received an award to develop an innovative and sustainable primary care delivery model for patients with chronic disease through workforce development, enhanced technology and the integration of behavioral health. Primary care clinics in South Dakota, North Dakota and Minnesota will be equipped to provide proactive outcomes-based care for patients with chronic disease and help patients manage their own healing and healthy behaviors. This new model of care will result in improved outcomes, better patient experience and reduced patient costs. Over a three-year period, Sanford Health's program will train an estimated 425 health care providers in enhanced clinical and patient engagement skills.
