The first webinar in the 2019 Healthier Washington Quarterly Webinar series will explore the future of Healthier Washington, as the initiative moves into a new phase.
Healthier Washington's State Innovation Model (SIM) grant ends in just two weeks, on January 31. This four-year, federal grant sparked the creation of the multi-sector, multi-agency Healthier Washington initiative. It kicked off the state-led portion of health systems transformation, and built a new foundation for health system change.
Healthier Washington remains focused on:
Care that supports the whole person.
A payment system that rewards value rather than volume, and supports providers to succeed.
A collaborative, regional, and community-based approach.
A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
