The Massachusetts Health Policy Commission’s Health Care Innovation Investment Program (HCII) is a unique opportunity for Massachusetts providers, health plans, and their partners to implement innovative models that deliver better health and better care at a lower cost. Chapter 224 of the Acts of 2012, the state’s landmark cost containment law, established this competitive investment program to support health care innovation and transformation.
The first phase of the HCII Program includes over $11 million in investments to 20 competitively selected awardees span the entire Commonwealth. Awards range from $250,000 to $1,000,000 and are divided among three pathways.
- Targeted Cost Challenge Investments
- Telemedicine Pilot
- Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome Investment Opportunity
On January 9, 2018, the Health Policy Commission (HPC) announced the next round of funding through its HCII Program: The SHIFT-Care Challenge. This $10 million grant opportunity is designed to foster innovative care delivery models in Massachusetts that shift the unnecessary delivery of care for complex patients from expensive, acute care hospitals, to more patient-centered, community-based settings.
