In February 2015, a group of safety net leaders from across the country came together to reimagine what care delivery should look like under a value-based payment model. At this visioning meeting, there was strong agreement that in order to succeed in the future, safety net organizations need to make radical shifts in how they deliver care.

This future vision shows that instead of a care model centered around the clinician-patient relationship, care will be co-created by an expanded care team that includes the patient and community at large. Patients will not only be collaborators, they will also be customers who are able to access care in the locations, times and channels that work best for them. All touchpoints—whether physical, digital or social—will be designed from the customers’ perspective.

In the Reimagined Care Challenge 2016, the Center for Care Innovations (CCI), in partnership with Blue Shield of California Foundation, aims to build upon the conclusions of that visioning meeting. This program will challenge primary care safety net clinics and associated partners to lead the way in creating new approaches to care for the most vulnerable populations in California.

CCI is looking for ambitious projects based around one or more of three essential strategies: extreme customer orientation, disintermediation, and committed community partnerships. elected organizations will receive up to $80,000 in grants to offset staff time, travel costs for site visits, and any other costs associated with implementation of the project. In addition to grant funds, CCI will work closely with grantees to design a focused technical assistance program based upon the needs of the selected organizations.

Letters of interest are due December 3, 2015.
