State Innovation Model (SIM)Initiative
•
•
SIM is a Center for
Medicare and Medicaid
Innovation (CMMI)
initiative to test and
implement health care
payment and delivery
reform ideas
Goal: Better quality in
health care, improved
experience, and lower
costs (Triple Aim)
National SIM Grants
•
•
•
Minnesota awarded
largest testing grant in the
country ($45.3 million),
February 2013
Five other states also
received SIM testing
grants from CMMI:
Massachusetts., Maine,
Vermont, Oregon and
Arkansas.
16 states received design
grants
SIM Background
•
“Minnesota Accountable Health Model”
• Joint MDH/DHS project
• 3 years, $45 million
• Staff coming on board
• Multiple grants, contracts, workgroups (internal and external)
already underway
• Collaborative Agreement with CMMI
• Testing Grant
What are We Testing?
Can we improve health and lower costs if more people are covered by
Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) models?
If we invest in data analytics, health information technology, practice facilitation,
and quality improvement, can we accelerate adoption of ACO models and
remove barriers to integration of care (including behavioral health, social
services, public health and long-term services and supports), especially among
smaller, rural and safety net providers?
How are health outcomes and costs improved when ACOs adopt Community
Care Team and Accountable Communities for Health models to support
integration of health care with non-medical services, compared to those who do
not adopt these models?
Q:
What is an Accountable Care Organization?
A:
•
•
•
Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are groups of
doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who
come together voluntarily to give coordinated high quality
care to their patients.
The goal of coordinated care is to ensure that patients –
especially the chronically ill – get the right care at the right
time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and
preventing medical errors.
When an ACO succeeds in both delivering high quality care
and spending health care dollars more wisely, it will share in
the savings it achieves.

Desired Outcomes
• Develop payment approaches to
create incentives for value not
volume
• Shift risk and rewards closer to
point of care to foster local
accountability
• Realize return on federal and
state investments
• Improve access to
care, outcomes and information
for the beneficiary
• Value = Better Quality + Lower
Cost/“The Triple Aim”
• Integrated prevention, wellness,
screening and disease
management
• Coordinate care across care cycle
• Data to monitor utilization,
compare and share across states
• New reimbursement structures,
including incentives that
encourage integrated practice
