The Vermont Blueprint for Health is a nationally recognized initiative that designs community-led strategies for improving health and well-being. At its foundation is the local Transformation Network – Facilitators, Project Managers, and Community Health Team leaders. This network enables rapid response to Vermont’s health and social service priorities through statewide implementation of new initiatives.
The Blueprint invests in and supports Patient Centered Medical Homes, Community Health Teams, Support and Services at Home (SASH), the Hub & Spoke program for opioid addiction treatment, the Women’s Health Initiative, Self-Management and Healthier Living workshops, and a series of learning labs for providers and community teams.
Blueprint programs are continuously informed by comprehensive evaluations of health care quality and outcomes at the practice-, community-, and state-levels. These evaluations have demonstrated that the Blueprint model reduces growth in health care costs while maintaining or improving outcomes. As the care delivery system and payment model evolve, the Blueprint’s aim is constant: connecting Vermonters with whole-person health care that is evidence-based, patient- and family-centered, and cost-effective.
