Primary Drivers of Innovation
In order to achieve our vision, three drivers of transformation are necessary:
Community and Clinical Integration Program: The Community and Clinical Integration Program (CCIP)
is the most recent and among the most ambitious products of our work on care
delivery reform. CCIP is comprised of a set of care delivery standards and
technical assistance that is intended to enable Advanced Networks and FQHCs to
deliver care that results in better health outcomes at lower costs for
Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial plan enrollees. CCIP participants will
receive free technical assistance, as well as peer support through a Learning
Community health improvement: Designated Prevention Service Centers ("Prevention Service Centers") and Health Enhancement Communities (HECs) will coordinate the efforts of community organizations, healthcare providers, employers, consumers and local public health entities.
Consumer empowerment: Mechanisms for consumer input and feedback, incentives for positive care experience, and enhanced information will enable consumers to manage their own health and make informed choices regarding their care.
Connecticut will enable our broad transformation through performance, cost and price transparency, value-based payment, health information technology, and workforce development. These initiatives, described in detail in the Innovation Plan, are highlighted here because of their role in achieving our vision.
