In the California safety net, many primary care programs for high-risk, high-cost patients exist or are in early development, as providers and payers focus on the high costs of care and on unmet patient needs for this segment of their patient population.

With funding from the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF), the Center for Care Innovations (CCI) is sponsoring an exciting improvement opportunity for up to ten California primary care clinics to work with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) in developing systems of care for patients with high-cost, complex care needs.

Starting March 2014, in Phase 1 of the program, clinics will develop project infrastructure, measurement capacity, and key partnerships to be effective in tailored program design and systematic improvement.
