  • All doors lead to practice transformation: Learn more about SIM cohort 2

    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.
