Michigan’s Approach to the State Innovations Model (SIM)
Thomas Curtis, Department Specialist, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services
In 2014 Governor Rick Snyder shared a vision for “healthy, productive individuals, living in communities that support health and wellness, with ready access to affordable, patient-centered and community-based systems of care”. Currently, the State of Michigan’s health care transformation is leveraging the State Innovations Model (SIM) Test Award to develop and implement a detailed plan for the core innovative models it will implement to support the Governor’s vision. In this session, learn what the state is rolling out under the SIM grant organized into a) population health elements b) care delivery elements, c) value-based payment elements and d) newly enhanced and existing data interoperability and Heath Information Technology (HIT). Learn how these elements can enhance day-to-day care and coordination with new techniques and how new integration points with community services can help improve overall population health. #
