SIM Grant Resources

The State Innovation Model fueled change to transform health care in our state.

From 2015 to January of 2019, Delaware received $35 million in federal grant funding under the State Innovation Model (SIM) program. During those four years, stakeholders from hospitals and health systems, insurance companies, physician practices, and community organizations worked together to improve health care access, quality, and affordability. There were many accomplishments. Key among them were the establishment of health care spending and quality benchmarks, implementation of value-based payment programs, health care practice transformation to improve overall performance, workforce initiatives to bring more talent to our state, and the integration of behavioral health into practice workflow.
