SIM good standing overview

Throughout the initiative, SIM practices have requested a different payment model that would support practice transformation efforts while health plans have requested more information about the work entailed to provide whole-person care.

To help health plans understand the work required for practices to transform care and participate in SIM, the Colorado team created a “good standing” report for SIM primary care practices in cohorts 2 and 3. Practices achieve good standing by successfully completing identified building blocks (based on the Bodenheimer building blocks of high-performing primary care practices) and achieving key milestones in the SIM framework, which was created with the Multi-Payer Collaborative. SIM will provide annual good standing reports to practices and health plans that support them in the initiative.
