Request for Pilot Proposals

IHN-CCO and the Delivery System Transformation Committee of the Regional Planning Council invite interested providers and agencies in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties who can positively impact the health outcomes of IHN-CCO members to submit proposals for pilots that transform the healthcare delivery system.

To be considered for funding, a required Letter of Intent Form (see links below) must be submitted to Transformation@samhealth.org by 5 p.m. on Monday, May 21, 2018.

Purpose of the Delivery System Transformation Committee

  1. Promote and strengthen partnerships and create new linkages that support transformation of the healthcare delivery system in the tri-county region through collaborative workgroups and pilots.
  2. Expand and integrate collaborative partnerships that are aligned with CCO goals and the Triple Aim.
  3. Promote, foster, support, share innovation, and expand the model of the Patient Centered Primary Care Home as the foundation of the CCO’s transformation of health care delivery.

What is transformation?

Transformation as defined by the Delivery System Transformation Committee is keeping the Patient-Centered Primary Care Home at the center of healthcare delivery, but includes creating different relationships, community connections, and linkages outside of the traditional health services setting. Transformation pilots should include upstream health and be willing to risk trying something different. 

Areas of strategic focus

More specifically, pilots will incorporate these aspects:

  • Effectiveness and sustainability
  • Expand, connect, and demonstrate access to person-centered; Medicaid-focused health care
  • Connect social determinants of health and upstream health to the traditional health care system
  • Coordinated, integrated care
  • Demonstrate innovation and outcomes in health care

Additional priority areas and requirements can be found in the Pilot Proposal Guidelines (PDF).
