Reform And Policy Work - CTC-RI

The Care Transformation Collaborative of Rhode Island (CTC-RI), the state’s multi-payer hub for new, innovative primary care pilot programs, initiatives, and transformation, has helped lead Rhode Island's efforts to advance primary care. CTC-RI brings practices, care teams,  payers, and systems of care  together to prioritize and target key initiatives to improve both adult and pediatric care, from introducing and expanded integrated behavioral health into the practice setting, to growing community health teams to engage high-risk patients, to supporting new telehealth work, to key programs that better support care needs and chronic conditions.

Convened in 2008 by the Office of the Health Insurance Commissioner (OHIC) and the Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS), CTC-RI began with 5 pilot practices and helped these practices successfully transform into "patient-centered medical homes" producing more coordinated, effective care. Today, more than 128 primary care practice sites and 700,000 Rhode Islanders have been supported by CTC-RI's work. Further, as the state's leading primary care transformation collaborative, CTC-RI continues to pilot and grow initiatives to better support the current and future health care workforce needs of the state.

Now as a 501c3, CTC-RI is supported by funding from public and private payers in Rhode Island, along with grant funding from government and non-governmental sources.
