The Current State Assessment

We are currently assembling a Current State Assessment (CSA) survey tool that will be distributed to the participating Medicaid providers who responded to our Letter of Interest (LOI) request in September of 2017.  In part, the CSA supports the requirements laid out in the Medicaid Transformation Project Toolkit (October 2017) and the Healthier Washington Medicaid Transformation Semi-Annual Report Template (March 2018).  Both these documents direct the ACH to complete a current state capacity assessment that contributes to implementation design decisions in support of each project area in the ACH’s project portfolio (bi-directional integration and practice transformation; transitional care; addressing opioid use; and chronic disease prevention and control) and Domain 1 focus areas (value-based payment, workforce and population health management).  Following a review by our project consultants at Oregon Health & Science University, the tool will then be loaded into an online survey package (e.g. SurveyMonkey) and then transmitted to GCACH participating Providers.  We hope to have the survey results tabulated by late May.
