Better care, better health, and better control over healthcare costs.
The Vermont Blueprint for Health is a state-led, nationally recognized initiative that helps healthcare providers meet the medical and social needs of people in their communities. Medical Homes are the foundation of the Blueprint which helps to continuously improve patient care and outcomes. Community Health Teams expand the services available to include free care coordination, counseling, substance abuse support, health coaching and more. The Blueprint also helps design innovative interventions, like Support and Services at Home 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. The Blueprint’s aim is constant: better care, better health, and better control over healthcare costs.
