State Healthcare Innovation Plan (SHIP)


In April 2013, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Innovation Center (CMMI) awarded Idaho up to three million dollars to develop a Statewide Healthcare Innovation Plan (SHIP). The SHIP grant was sponsored by Governor Otter, and managed by Idaho department of Health and Welfare.  A competitive process was used to hire a consulting company to facilitate the planning process and help develop the Idaho SHIP.  The consultant, Mercer Health and Benefits, has expertise in stakeholder-driven planning projects and large system transformation.
