A new interactive tool from the Kaiser Family Foundation provides an overview of the increasing number of delivery system and payment reform efforts that are underway as alternatives to traditional fee-for-service arrangements in state Medicaid programs across the country. Users can scroll over the interactive map and see highlights of the initiatives that exist in each state, including Medicaid managed care, Patient-Centered Medical Homes, Accountable Care Organizations, Health Homes and Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment Program (DSRIP) waivers. While the map is a portal introducing users to the various types of initiatives, related briefs at the bottom of each page enable users to dive more deeply into the details of each topic. Also available from the Foundation is an updated glossary of key terms and concepts in delivery system and payment reform initiatives to help readers understand terms that can often be technical and heavy with jargon. This resource will be updated periodically to reflect the constantly changing landscape of delivery system and payment reform efforts.
