Workgroups and Innovation Council

Three workgroups and an overarching Innovation Council were launched in early 2015 to assist the state in pre-implementation work of the SIM project. These workgroups met throughout 2015 and continue to meet as needed. Workgroup members represent a variety of perspectives to deliver suggestions and recommendations based on the charges of each workgroup. This page includes all current materials and presentations.

Innovation Council

  • Frame a cohesive policy agenda to advance the Triple Aim
  • Provide guidance on key decision points and potential policy recommendations developed by topical workgroups
  • Consider and offer guidance to support the consistency of vision, mission, metrics and incentives across key programs
