Dear Primary Care Colleague,

We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted as a participating practice in the first New Hampshire Citizens Health Initiative - Multi-Stakeholder Patient-Centered Medical Home

Pilot. This pilot represents collaboration among the NH Citizens Health Initiative (NHCHI) medical home workgroup, the Center for Medical Home Improvement, and the three private New Hampshire Health Plans: Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, CIGNA and Anthem, as well as NH Medicaid.
Pilot participants were selected based on their overall quantitative score, with consideration of their essay responses, organization type, geography and patient panel size. The selected pilot participants were the highest scoring applicants, yet also happen to represent the full spectrum of practice types and sizes, with geographic distribution that covers nearly the entire state. The practices selected, listed in alphabetical order, are as follows:

Our intent is to provide an ongoing forum for operational linkages with the health plans, as well as provide for opportunities for collaboration and sharing of best practices, both administrative and clinical.
We will convene the pilot participants in the morning of January 27, 2009. Details on the meeting agenda, location and times are forthcoming. If you have any questions related to the pilot or the January meeting, please do not hesitate to contact Heather Staples at 603.491.2701 or .
