Mike Squires participates in Health Affairs panel on Diffusion of Innovation
“The organizationâ€™s 'triple aim' is laser-focused on Community, Automation and Platform.â€�
CRANBURY, N.J. March 13, 2018
Mike Squires, Vice President of Innovation and Public Policy at BluePrint Healthcare IT and Care Navigator Inc, recently participated in a panel at the Health Affairs â€œDiffusion of Innovationâ€� event in Washington, DC. He highlighted how the organization has supported healthcare IT innovation adoption through the creation of the award-winning Care Navigatorâ„¢ Care Coordination platform and their prior development of the Healthcare Innovation Exchange Summit series
As quoted by Health Affairs on Twitter, Squires said, “The organizationâ€™s 'triple aim' is laser-focused on Community, Automation and Platform.â€� These three dimensions are key to creating and diffusing innovation for value-based care models that include care coordination and care management, particularly those addressing social determinants of health, behavioral health and partnering with community-based organizations.
The panel focused on the â€œThe Road Ahead: Accelerating Diffusion,â€� where Mike pointed out one such implementation featured in a front-page Washington Post piece, highlighting Vermontâ€™s â€œambitious goal of taking its alternative payment model statewide and applying it to 70 percent of insured state residents by 2022.â€�
In 2017, 30,000 Medicaid patients â€œtransitioned into the experimental model through a pilot run by the accountable care organization OneCare Vermont.â€� The system uses Care Navigatorâ„¢ to â€œflag people with complex medical needs and chronic health conditions and to coordinate care and support for those deemed at high risk.â€�
During the panel, Mr. Squires highlighted the reasons why community, automation and platform are necessary to realize the goals of value-based care and payment models. In the case of Vermont, established communities — already working together using a toolkit of methods and protocols — scaled and accelerated diffusion of their innovation by automating workflows and processes, and connecting extended care team members within and across communities on a single software platform.
