The HPC makes investments to support care delivery transformations and other innovations that align with the agency’s mission to advance a more transparent, accountable, and equitable health care system. To date, the HPC’s investment programs have included: the Community Hospital Acceleration, Revitalization, and Transformation (CHART) Program, which made phased investments into eligible Massachusetts community hospitals to enhance their delivery of efficient, effective care; the Health Care Innovation Investment (HCII) Program, which invested in providers, health plans, and their partners to test and spread innovations that advance the Commonwealth’s cost containment goals while improving access to high-quality care; and the SHIFT-Care Challenge, a competitive funding opportunity designed to foster innovative models that shift the unnecessary delivery of care for complex patients from expensive, acute care hospitals to more patient-centered, community-based settings. Most recently, the HPC launched the Moving Massachusetts Upstream (MassUP) investment program, which is funding four partnerships of health care and community organizations to implement upstream strategies to address the social determinants of health in specific communities.
The HPC is currently soliciting proposals for our newest investment program, Cost-Effective, Coordinated Care for Caregivers and Substance Exposed Newborns (C4SEN). C4SEN will support providers to develop innovative care models to better address the holistic health care and social needs of SEN and their caregivers. See below for more information.
