The Task Force hosted part one in our “Advancing Value Through Transformation” webinar series examining the Medicaid Delivery System Reform Incentive Program (DSRIP) waiver program in the context of evolving state-level delivery system reform innovations.
More than two million seniors and people with disabilities (SPDs) enrolled in Medi-Cal in California will be impacted by reforms, initiatives, and new policies being developed through CalAIM (California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal).
By accelerating change at the state level, leaders can innovate to deliver new models and benefits that support those most in need of care – Medicaid beneficiaries – and can act as incubators for federal change.
The pandemic has accelerated trends moving the delivery of care into the home or community. Yet, care at home largely remains the province of better resourced individuals, due to limited funding by government programs. Medicaid, the federal/state program of health care for people of lower income, has the potential to address these equity issues through waivers or plan amendments.
CalAIM (California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal) is a comprehensive, multiyear effort led by the California Department of Health Care Services that seeks to implement broad delivery system, program, and payment reform across California’s Medi-Cal program.
In this clip from The Health Storm, Hope Glassberg discusses the challenge of measuring the value of primary care without access to meaningful hospital admission data and the need for data portability.
