Blueprint for Health Innovation

The Blueprint for Health Innovation is a strategic plan for developing and testing new multi-payer health care payment and services delivery models in Michigan. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) developed the Blueprint for Health Innovation with support from a Round One Model Design Grant from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. MDHHS developed the Blueprint for Health Innovation in collaboration with a wide variety of health care stakeholders, including representatives of health systems, physicians, payers, business, safety net providers, community service providers, and consumers. The Blueprint for Health Innovation is built upon the following five components:

  1. Patient-Centered Medical Homes
  2. Accountable Systems of Care
  3. Value-Based Payment Models
  4. Community Health Innovation Regions
  5. Enhanced Data-Sharing and Interoperability

The Blueprint for Health Innovation and its related appendices are available for review below.

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation awarded Michigan a Round Two grant to support the implementation of the State Innovation Model initiative. MDHHS will use the Implementation Grant to (1) implement the strategies that were outlined in the Blueprint for Health Innovation and (2) facilitate the development and testing of new multi-payer health care payment and services delivery models in Michigan.
