State of Hawaii
Geographic Reach: Hawaii
Funding Amount: $937,691
Over the next 6 months, the State of Hawaii will receive up to $937,691 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.
Hawaii proposes to develop a state innovation model informed by accountable care arrangements, patient-centered medical homes and bundled payment methodologies. Specific planning initiatives will include examining standardized definitions and payment approaches for patient-centered medical homes and care management services; analyzing opportunities for reducing waste and eliminating unnecessary variation in administrative procedures among plans; identifying and addressing differences among plans in how licensed providers are reimbursed; and methods for reimbursing telehealth services. The resulting integrated health care model will incentivize standardized efficiency, accessibility, and quality outcomes.
