In 2013, the MMF and the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) convened a meeting for representatives from six State Innovation Model test states, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation, and NORC at the University of Chicago, to identify common issues and potential solutions facing these states. A wide range of issues were discussed, but two areas of opportunity stood out for the test states at the meeting . These two areas also are likely to be of great interest to SIM design states and others looking to undertake multi-payer health care transformation in the coming year: (1) engaging all payers in common/aligned payment reform, and (2) integrating a broader array of providers across care delivery. While these two broad categories are familiar to stakeholders already engaged in multi-payer work, states honed in on a few new issues that are highly salient for all states interested in transforming their health systems. These issues were covered in two issue briefs.
The MMF continues to work with SIM test and design states as they develop and implement he State Health Innovation Plans required under the SIM program.
