Care Delivery

At the core of the Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH) Initiative, a State Innovation Model partnership with Michigan Primary Care Transformation (MiPCT), are comprehensive strategies for coordinated delivery of care.  Building upon the foundation of the MiPCT demonstration, the PCMH Initiative leverages multi-payer participation to further advance the PCMH model of care across Michigan in an effort to realize improvements in the quality of care, health outcomes, patient satisfaction, and increased participation in alternative payment methodologies. Over the next three years, beginning January 1, 2017, the SIM Care Delivery PCMH Initiative will work towards realizing those goals through achieving the following objectives:

  • Increasing the percentage of active primary care providers practicing in PCMH settings.
  • Increasing the percentage of Michigan residents receiving primary care services in a PCMH setting.
  • Increasing the percentage of active primary care providers participating in Category 3B or higher Alternative Payment Methodologies.
  • Continuing measurable improvements in quality of care, health outcomes and patient satisfaction measures
  • Making a positive impact on PCMH’s understanding and management of their patients’ healthcare cost.

For more detail on aspects of the PCMH Initiative, please review the supporting materials found on this web page. This web page will serve as a library of Care Delivery information and other program material and reports that will provide participants, citizens and other entities visibility into the progress and impact of the SIM Test in Michigan.

  • Practice Transformation Collaborative:

The 2018 Practice Transformation Collaborative is a nine-month collaborative offered by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI). To facilitate the continuous transformation of care and outcomes for patients in Michigan, the collaborative supports practices to more effectively and efficiently address the social determinants of health. We will employ a quality improvement (QI) approach to identify, test, measure improvement, and scale up ways of building clinical-community linkages (CCLs).
