AHRQ Innovations Exchange profiles Vermont's Blueprint for Health

0 Comments | Posted

Blueprint for Health is a statewide, public-private initiative authorized by the Vermont legislature that provides physician practices with access to insurer-funded community health teams and financial incentives, preventive health expertise, and real-time electronic information designed to improve the provision of preventive, health maintenance, and chronic care services. The program’s overall goal is to give practices the motivation, support, and infrastructure needed to deliver coordinated, high-quality care within the current work environment. Initially, the Blueprint model was pilot tested in three areas and now serves more than half the state’s residents in 14 communities. Early trends in the pilot communities suggest that the program has reduced utilization and growth in health care spending and improved the provision of appropriate care and services.
