SIM Goals

The Maine State Innovation Model award has four primary objectives aimed at achieving the Triple Aim:

  1. Reduce the total cost of care per person per year in Maine to the national average;
  2. Improve the health of Maine’s population in at least four categories of disease prevalence (including diabetes, mental health, obesity, and tobacco use);
  3. Improve patient experience scores for targeted practices by 2% from the baseline 2012 survey;
  4. Increase the number of practices reporting patient experience information from 50% to 66%.

To accomplish these goals the State of Maine has contracted with organizations throughout the state that have a proven track record for successfully engaging in payment reform, strengthening primary care, integrating physical and behavioral health, developing new workforce models, data analytics and reporting, and consumer engagement.
