State Innovation Models (SIM) Round 2: Model Design Final Report
The RTI team reviewed and abstracted data from the State Health System Innovation Plan (SHSIPs) and other Model Design documents for 21 states. The team used data from the SHSIPs, state data, and supporting document submissions, and state web sites to complete a data abstraction template that RTI had developed with CMMI’s input for each of the awardees. These data abstractions, along with the SHSIPs and supporting data, were used to identify cross-state themes and answer three research questions:1) What healthcare payment and delivery models and enabling strategies are proposed in the SHSIPs by the Model Design Awardees? 2) What is the geographic and population reach of the SHSIPs? 3) How did the SHSIPs address the core elements identified in the SIM Round 2 funding opportunity announcement?
