Delivery System Transformation Pilots

Purpose of the Delivery System Transformation Committee

• Promote and strengthen partnerships and create new alliances that support transformation of the health care delivery system in the tri-county region through collaborative workgroups and pilots.
• Expand and integrate collaborative partnerships that are aligned with CCO goals and the Quadruple Aim.
• 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 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 health care system. The priority areas are community-driven and chosen based on IHN-CCO Community Advisory Council’s Community Health Improvement Plan Health Impact Areas. This Request for Proposal has the following priority areas: 

  • Addressing trauma, including environmental.
  • Addressing technology disparities.
  • Developing a bilingual and bicultural workforce.
  • Innovative programs supporting housing.
  • Language access including health literacy, interpreter services and translation of materials.
  • Oral health integration.
  • Pay equity through building and sustaining the workforce.
