health human services evolution
Health & Human Services Evolution
  • Healthy population centered; further shift of $ upstream
  • Health & well-being of the individual tied to health of community
  • Greater focus on social determinants of health
  • Seamless integration of all services & supports
  • Robust reporting of quality and outcomes
  • Pay for value, not volume
  • Beginning to shift $ upstream – more focus on prevention
  • High impact strategies
  • Still minimal integration
  • Initial reporting of quality & outcomes
  • Sick care & crisis focus: little $ for prevention
  • Uncoordinated services not well integrated
  • Minimal reporting of quality and outcomes
  • Pay for volume, not value

key design feature
Key Design Feature

Fewersilos among “individual” delivery level and “community” level work.

Instead: a single, supportive structure to integrate across domains for planning, measurement, financing strategies, accountability.

a way to improve overall hhs system performance accountability
A Way to Improve Overall HHS System Performance & Accountability

Improve system performance for all by focusing first on those people & places who most need that system to perform well.

Leads to improved outcomes for those with the worst outcomes now – and a reduction in disparitiesAnd tells us how well the system overall is doing (sentinel marker – a sort of watchperson)

individual level initial focus
Individual-level Initial Focus
  • Fast-moving system changes - opportunities to coordinate in new ways for even more value & better client service
  • Some shared goals, investors, initiatives, & demonstrations already in play
  • Near-term opportunities to coordinate with State Medicaid
  • Risk of working at cross-purposes if we don’t do anything
  • Can’t achieve outcomes unless multiple sectors get aligned

1. Improve outcomes for high need, high risk adults

community level initial focus
Community-level Initial Focus

2. Improve outcomes for high need, high risk communities

  • We have place-based initiatives to build upon (how do we make less ad hoc?)
  • Approach for tackling racial/ethnic and geographic inequities – and measuring change
  • Strategies must come from the community, be locally owned
  • Outcomes depend on multiple sectors getting aligned
sample outcomes that would tell us if the system is working better
Sample Outcomes That Would Tell Us If the System is Working Better

For this group of high risk people, achieve:

  • Improved housing stability
  • Improved health status
  • Reduced CJ involvement
  • Reduced avoidable hospital ED use
  • Improved client satisfaction with quality of life
  • Reduced population-level health disparities

For these communities, achieve:

  • Improved housing
  • Increased employment
  • Reduced ACES scores (adverse childhood experiences)
  • Increased life expectancy
funding and financing strategies
Funding and financing strategies
  • Make best use of existing resources by defining outcomes and aligning resources to support the identified outcomes
  • Leverage the opportunities provided under the Affordable Care Act
  • Set the Stage for New Resources
