This is an exciting time for Colorado practices that want to start the process of transitioning from volume- to value-based healthcare delivery models.
This winter the Colorado State Innovation Model (SIM) will release its application for cohort 2 and the SIM team encourages practices that applied for the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) initiative to download a PDF of those applications and submit them as part of their SIM applications this winter. These practices can then access an abbreviated set of SIM questions to avoid re-entering information asked on the CPC+ application into the SIM application.

The Transforming Clinical Practices Initiative (TCPi), a federal program offered statewide for up to 2,000 providers and staff, is close to capacity. Eligible providers include MDs, DOs, PAs and APNs, LCSWs and psychologists in primary care, specialty care, and behavioral health practices. Providers enrolled in a Medicare shared savings program or the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative (CPCi) are not eligible. Click here to learn more about the program and to sign-up.
