Accountable Communities Linked to “Develop New Payment Model” Strategic Pillar. An “AC” is a group of primary care practices -- and possibly other providers types -- represented by a “Lead Entity” that contracts with the Department. Members are assigned to an AC based on where they get their primary care, and in a few cases, Emergency Department services. A “Total Cost of Care” benchmark is set for each AC. The AC can share in up to 50% of savings if savings are > 2% (for 5000+ members) or 2.5% (1000-4999) members. Exact amount of savings depends on the AC’s quality score, made up of 18 different measures.

Workforce Development Under SIM Two things were clear when developing the SIM Grant application: 1.Healthcare workers were going to need to develop new skills and competencies in order to adapt to the new service models developing under SIM. 2.The Intellectually and Developmentally Disabled (I/DD) are some of the highest utilizers of the healthcare system, but do to a duplication of service issue they would be largely carved out of the new service models. It was necessary to find a way for them to also benefit from the work of SIM.
I/DD Workforce Development SIM Year 1SIM Year 2 MaineCare and OADS convened a group of stakeholders that met over the course of three months. Identified priority problems faced by this population and a work plan to address these problems. In SIM Quarter 4 a contract was signed with Maine Developmental Disabilities Council (DDC) to accomplish work plan. The DDC will: Hold breakout sessions at the Quality Counts Learning Sessions, and Regional Forums to educate providers on topics like “Transitions of Care” and “Communication and Pain in Non- Verbal Patients”. Developing a curriculum for case managers, direct service providers, and guardians that will teach them how act as “care coordinators” and interact with physical health providers.
