Community health centers and community behavioral health organizations face increasing pressure to move towards models of payment and care that reward value over volume.
The Delta Center for a Thriving Safety Net provides technical assistance to state primary care associations and behavioral health state associations to advance value-based payment and care, with a focus on ambulatory care settings. The Delta Center seeks to leverage the strengths of state associations to spur promising payment and delivery reforms and will disseminate lessons from local, state, and national experiences to inform policy and practice.
The Delta Center is the first national center to focus exclusively on transforming payment and care for ambulatory primary care and behavioral health services. Care delivery transformation, payment reform, and sustainable learning organizations are the three main areas of focus.
