Connecticut's State Innovation Model (SIM) Initiative

The CT SIM Initiative invites you to participate in the Advanced Medical Home (AMH) program. Your investment now in practice advancement can generate huge dividends after achieving NCQA PCMH recognition.

On 12/12, CT SIM will host a dinner for physicians interested in learning more about AMH. CSMS President Jeffrey Gordon, MD will provide opening program remarks; the keynote speaker will be Marci Nielsen, PhD, MPH,  President and CEO of the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC).

•    Develop a stronger bond with your patients leading to healthier outcomes
•    Decrease team turnover and boost staff satisfaction
•    Qualify for higher primary care fees and quality payments under Medicaid
•    Excel in Medicare’s Merit Based Incentive Payment System
•    Become eligible to participate in new payment models

It’s never been easier or more rewarding to restructure your practice into an AMH.
