State Evaluators

What is the Purpose of the State Evaluation Team?

The State Evaluators were brought on by the Department of Health and Welfare to capture the perspectives and reactions of the population encompassed by the SHIP. They evaluated activities and supported quality improvements. At the center of their evaluation they documented the patient’s experience and perspectives.  Clinical and administrative staff who work in PCMH’s were interviewed about the  implementation of their PCMH. Broad system- level descriptive information on the SHIP implementation was obtained from stakeholders, IDHW, commercial insurers, Medicaid administrators, and SHIP contractors. Methods used included surveys, interviews, and secondary data analysis.


Who were they?

University of Idaho (UI) and Boise State University (BSU) together formulate the State Evaluation team for the SHIP.
