CMS Innovation Center Announces $665 Million Award to States for Delivery System Reform
Five of our six states are listed in this delivery of system reform.
This is a great place to apply the principles of the LifeCourse framework and especially the “three buckets” (info, peer support and goods & services). This also might be an opportunity to look at the “front door” and building a “family navigator” structure that improves health system performance, increase quality of care and decrease costs.
Let us know if any of you are involved in this in your state and ways that the two initiatives may be connected. We are very excited to see what happens as a result of this project!
