EOHHS Presents Health System Transformation Project to CTC-RI Board of Directors

  • 02 Sep 2020

The RI Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) presented a health system transformation (HSTP) project to the CTC-RI Board of Directors in their efforts to solicit public input. With a social determinants of health investment strategy, HSTP budgeted ~$3.5M to invest in "social determinants of health." While the Accountable Entity program includes some requirements around the social determinants and had invested in ad hoc initiatives, EOHHS determined that a more cohesive strategy was needed. To this end, EOHHS developed a vision and has proposed a set of investments and activities meant to improve Medicaid members' social needs and the factors that have measurable impact on health outcomes. EOHHS has published a draft narrative describing their vision and proposed strategy in more detail, which can be found on the EOHHS website. The deadline for public comment is September 16, 2020. Comments can be directed to Amy Katzen.
