Launched in 2015, the Innovation Fund program was developed to support partner organizations in the development or expansion of programs that support the transformation of healthcare delivery, and improve patient outcomes and the overall experience for the Medicaid population within our 9-county region. Going into our 4th round of the Innovation Fund program, Care Compass Network (CCN) will award another $2 million to organizations across the Southern Tier.
In alignment with the NYS Department of Health’s Value-based Payment (VBP) Roadmap, Care Compass Network’s final round of the Innovation Fund program will be contracted with Safety Net partners only. We encourage non-Safety Net providers to collaborate with Safety Net providers to submit proposals, but all funding and contracting will be done with the Safety Net provider as the lead contracting entity. Additional information around this new requirement can be found at the bottom of page 14 in the Innovation Fund RFP document.
Proposals must be submitted to Care Compass Network by Thursday, January 31, 2019. All proposals will be scored by an independent evaluator not associated by Care Compass Network.
CCN’s Population Health team is available to partner organizations in need of analytical support to show their footprint within their region or analytical data that helps support their proposal, showing its potential impact.
