Pierce County Health Innovation Partnership
Changes to health care delivery and payment systems through the Affordable Care Act and the Washington State Health Care Innovation Plan (SHCIP) has provided an opportunity for health organizations across the nation to work together to improve public health, and patient care while decreasing health care costs.
To accomplish this, local health care systems, providers, payers, purchasers and public health are working together to transform health in Pierce County. Together, we will:
- Create a regional Accountable Community of Health.
- Develop and implement a coordinated health plan that responds to the health needs of our community.
- Address barriers and develop solutions to accessing health care.
- Break down silos that exist between organizations and replace with a supportive, learning culture.
- Utilize a “collective impact” framework to develop cost effective, collaborative strategies to improve patient care and health.
- Identify funding opportunities and develop a sustainability plan.

Within the next month, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is expected to announce a $30 million “Health Care Innovation” grant opportunity to support new payment and service delivery models for Medicare, Medicaid, and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) recipients. We will apply for funding to support local interventions to improve diabetes and depression outcomes in Pierce County.
