SIM operational plan approved

At the March 10 Steering Committee meeting, the operational plan for Michigan’s State Innovation Model was approved. The plan included a Community Health Needs Assessment, and an intervention designed to link frequent emergency department users with both clinical and social services. The plan hinged on Governor Snyder’s vision for “healthy, productive individuals, living in communities that support health and wellness, with ready access to [an] affordable, patient-centered and community-based system of care.”
