Eastern Health Collaborative

The Statewide Healthcare Innovation Plan (SHIP) is a comprehensive statewide initiative to improve the health of all Idahoans by reforming our healthcare delivery system to one that values improved health outcomes through a patient-centered focus. Idaho's SHIP will affect you, your family and community by improving healthcare at an affordable cost.

Regional Collaboratives
As part of the SHIP, the Regional Collaboratives (RC) will facilitate development of the medical neighborhoods to strengthen patient care coordination and will convene a regional stakeholder advisory collaborative group. The RC stakeholder advisory collaborative group will have direct input to the Idaho Healthcare Coalition (IHC) through Public Health District (PHD) directors and RC chairs so regional and local concerns can be raised at the state level. In the management of RCs, Idaho’s PHDs will lead integration of public health and population management into the model, and will bring an intimate familiarity with local healthcare resources to developing the medical neighborhood. Communities will participate in community needs assessments and will work with the RCs to align specific performance metrics for the Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMHs) in their region with identified areas of need.
