California Health Care Safety Net Institute, Aggregate Public Hospital System Annual Report in California’s §1115 Medicaid Waiver’s Delivery System Incentive Program Demonstration Year 8 (December 31, 2013)
Public hospitals, including the five UC hospitals, were eligible for $3.3 billion in federal matching funds over a five-year period. The California Health Care Safety Net Institute has summarized the first three years of implementation. The five categories for improvement were: 1) infrastructure development, 2) innovation and design, 3) population focused improvement, 4) urgent improvements in care and 5) HIV transition projects.
Infrastructure development included the following: moving from episodic reactive visits to data-driven population health management. It included more primary care capacity, disease management registries and electronic health records.
Innovation and design included: transforming primary care clinics into medical homes, and moving from silos to integrated seamless systems integrating primary care, specialty care, behavioral health and hospital based services.
