Oklahoma State Innovation Model (OSIM)


Oklahoma State Innovation Model Application - PDF

The State Innovation Model (SIM) grant was awarded to Oklahoma in December 2014 and is to begin in February 2015.  The goal of the Oklahoma SIM is to provide state-based solutions to Oklahoma’s healthcare challenges. Oklahoma’s plan aims to improve health, provide better care and reduce health expenditures for more than 1.2 million Oklahomans. Working through the Oklahoma Health Improvement Plan (OHIP) Coalition, a public-private partnership consisting of a broad spectrum of stakeholders across the state, the OSIM will design a comprehensive model that focuses on the improvement of statewide health outcomes through value-based payment and healthcare delivery system innovation and redesign, while integrating evidence-based population and clinical interventions.

The plan is divided into three phases of work; phase 1 seeks to achieve consensus among coalition stakeholders on the alignment of a socio-ecological model that includes clinical and population-based health measures for selected health topics: obesity, diabetes, hypertension and tobacco. In phase 2, stakeholders will assess and determine what multi-payer, value-based purchasing model realistically achieves common priorities and goals. Concurrently, in phase 3, stakeholders will identify strategies to increase adoption levels of Electronic Health Records (EHR) and attainment of Meaningful Use (MU) among providers; initiate planning for the development of a Value-Based Analytics Tool (VBA) for healthcare data analysis; determine benchmarks aimed at improving clinical and population health outcomes; and identify potential savings across multi-payer structures.

Previous Versions

Summary: The State Health System Innovation Plan (SHSIP) puts forth a new healthcare model to move Oklahoma into value-based purchasing of healthcare. It is the final deliverable of the State Innovation Model (SIM) grant and is scheduled to be submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on March 31, 2016. The SHSIP is being posted for a 30 day public comment period.

Based on stakeholder feedback, technical assistance, and CMS feedback, we made the following changes to this section of the SHSIP:

F. Value-Based Payment and/or Service Delivery Model

This section details the proposed Oklahoma Model: Regional Care Organizations (RCOs), multi-payer quality metrics, and episodes of care.

Based on stakeholder feedback, technical assistance, and CMS feedback, we made the following changes to this section of the SHSIP:

  • Clarification of how Oklahoma can reach the 80% threshold of value based payments (VBP).
  • In order to achieve a decline in per capita expenditures, the Per Member Per Month (PMPM) growth rate will be capped by the state to ensure that cost targets are met.
  • Page 100 has been changed to reflect that the Health Care Payment and Learning Action Network continuum of payment will serve as a guide as the State develops direct links to population health outcomes within RCO adopted APAs.
  • Clarification has been added to explain that the model has an option for partial capitation arrangements.
  • Clarification has been added regarding the role of the Provider Advisory Committee. The Committee will be an overarching statewide committee that will consist of those providing care within the RCO model.
  • Clarification has been added to address that the State Governing Body will have a formal charter that defines the scope and authority, term limits and rotating seats.
  • The Board of Accountable Providers (BAP) will include representation from provider types (or their representative organizations) active in the RCO’s healthcare delivery system.
  • Clarification has been added to explain that the Community Advisory Board will be comprised of consumers, patients and advocates, who will form a majority of the membership.
  • The descriptions of Joint Replacement and COPD Episodes of Care have been updated (SHSIP, Figure 36, pg. 123).
  • Clarification has been made to the model tenets to acknowledge the model will sustain activities/practices and processes that already exist and are showing they meet the triple aim. Stakeholders have expressed that they want to preserve currently successful integrated health care delivery models.
  • Clarification has been made that as the RCO matures, it is envisioned that other private markets could be incorporated as desired by commercial insurers.
  • The title of Page 103 has been updated as "Shared Risk".
  • A section has been added to the SIM plan on Tribal Health and the impact on Native American populations.
