Awarded a $43.1 million federal grant over a four year period to support a statewide health system transformation, Iowa is one of only 11 states to receive this State Innovation Model (SIM) testing grant. Iowa will use the SIM grant to implement and evaluate a sustainable health care delivery and payment system that will improve population health, improve patient care, and bend health care cost trends. Through the SIM program, Iowa will align and equip communities to address population needs by collaborating with payers, providers and public health entities. The SIM Test aligns Iowa payers in payment reform that focuses on value; equips Iowa providers with tools to perform in value based, population focused models; and aligns and integrates public health strategies into how health care is delivered. Together, these approaches ensure a robust, statewide transformation to achieve Iowa’s SIM vision, “Transforming Health Care to Improve the Health of Iowans”.
