About the Blueprint

The Vermont Blueprint for Health is a state-led, nationally-recognized initiative that helps health care providers meet the medical and social needs of people in their communities.

Medical Homes are the foundation of the Blueprint, along with Practice Facilitators who help them continuously improve care, and Community Health Teams who expand available services to include free care coordination, counseling, substance abuse treatment support, health coaching and more. The Blueprint also helps design innovative interventions, like Support and Services at Home (SASH) for elders and Hub & Spoke Medication Assisted Therapy for individuals battling opioid addiction. All Blueprint work is closely integrated with health and human service organizations through Community Collaboratives that guide care delivery and payment reforms at the local level.

As our health care system evolves, the Blueprint's aim is constant: better care, better health, and better control over health care costs.
