Health Workforce Development

For the Innovation Plan to succeed, it is essential that Connecticut has a healthcare workforce of sufficient size, composition and training to carry out the plan in both the short-term and long-term. With input from stakeholders and a workforce task force, we lay out six broad, multipurpose initiatives:

Health workforce data and analytics will be collected in order to make informed decisions regarding training initiatives and regional needs.


Inter-professional education (IPE), a Connecticut Service Track will be created to promote team and population-health approaches to health professional training (page 177 of the CT Healthcare Innovation Plan).


Training and certification standards for Community Health Workers will ensure that community health workers with common core competencies become an integral part of the healthcare workforce.


Preparation of today’s workforce for care delivery reform so providers are able to adapt to our advanced and accountable care delivery models.


Innovation in primary care Graduate Medical Education (GME) and residency programs so that these efforts better align with our health and healthcare reforms.


Health professional and allied health professional training career pathways to improve career flexibility, expand the pipeline of healthcare professionals, and promote workforce diversity.
