Request for Proposals

Health Care Homes Program Evaluation Plan

The Department of Health (MDH) requests proposals for a program evaluator to design an evaluation plan to assess the impact of certified Health Care Homes clinics across Minnesota. Minnesota’s Health Care Homes Program, known nationally as a patient centered medical home, is an approach to primary care in which primary care providers, families and patients work in partnership to improve health outcomes and quality of life for individuals with chronic or complex health conditions. The Health Care Homes (HCH) program is one of the centerpieces of Minnesota's 2008 health reform initiative. Through its focus on redesign of care delivery and meaningful engagement of patients in their care, Health Care Homes is transforming care - and lives - for millions of Minnesotans.

It is the goal of this RFP to contract with a program evaluator to work with the HCH team and its associated evaluation work group and advisory committee to design an evaluation plan to measure how implementing HCH standards for Minnesota’s primary care delivery system impacts the quadruple aim; physician and provider burnout / joy in practice; experience of care; quality of care; and value of care.
