Delivery System Transformation Pilots

What is Transformation?

Transformation as defined by the DST 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. 

Priority Areas

The DST is interested in testing new and innovative methods of transforming the healthcare system. The priority areas are community-driven and chosen based on IHN-CCO Community Advisory Council’s Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) Health Impact Areas. This Request for Proposal has the following priority areas: 

  • Addressing trauma.
  • Developing a bilingual and bicultural workforce.
  • Improving access to behavioral health services in non-traditional ways.
  • Increasing and improving access to behavioral health care in light of COVID-19.
  • Innovative programs supporting housing.
  • Language access including health literacy, interpreter services, and translation of materials.
  • Pay equity through building and sustaining the workforce.
  • Subpopulations of IHN-CCO members that experience health disparities.
  • E.g. Latino/a/x, LGBTQ+, disabled folx, indigenous, foster care youth, youth in transition from foster care.
     

IHN-CCO is committed to improving the health of our communities by building on current resources and partnerships within the tri-county region to support transformation of the delivery system. IHN-CCO welcomes partners and strategies that support ensuring all IHN-CCO members have equal opportunities to be healthy where they live, work, learn, and play. IHN-CCO is committed to improving the health of our communities through investing in social determinants of health, specifically housing, through the SHARE Initiative.  
IHN-CCO invites proposals from interested parties that have the capacity and the ability to impact housing in the following priority areas:

  • Medical Respite.
  • Housing Supports including Traditional Health Workers and Transitional Housing.
  • Regional Coordination of Housing Efforts.
