  • Monitoring activities related to Accountable Communities for Health and identify lessons learned based on this work;
  • Reviewing, developing, and recommending standards for Medicaid Value-Based Purchasing models ;
  • Assisted with All-Payer Model implementation as appropriate; and
  • Monitored implementation of Pay-for-Performance investments, Health Home (Hub & Spoke) program, and ensure these activities were included in Vermont’s SIM Sustainability Plan as appropriate.
