Myers and Stauffer is supporting the collaboration of 7 regionally-based Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs) as a part of New Hampshire's Building Capacity for Transformation Medicaid Section 1115(a) Research & Demonstration Waiver. This waiver allows New Hampshire to access up to $150 million dollars over five years as a part of a Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program. This is an unprecedented opportunity for New Hampshire to strengthen community-based mental health services, combat the state's opioid crisis, and drive health care delivery system reform. The IDNs are comprised of primary care providers, behavioral health providers (including both mental health and substance use disorder (SUD) providers), hospitals, county correctional and/or nursing facilities, and social service organizations partnering to achieve specified process milestones and performance based metric targets - collectively as a single IDN. To achieve the state’s vision for Medicaid system transformation, the IDNs are implementing evidence-supported projects built around three enabling pathways: • Mental health and substance use disorder treatment capacity building • Integration of physical and behavioral health care • Improving transitions of care across settings
