Launched in 2008 by the Office of the Health Insurance Commissioner, the Rhode Island Chronic Care Sustainability Initiative (CSI-RI), now called the Care Transformation Collaborative of of Rhode Island (CTC-RI), brings together key health care stakeholders to promote care for patients with chronic illnesses through the patient-centered medical some (PCMH) model.
CTC-RI began with five pilot sites in 2008, and has grown to 73 adult and 9 pediatric practice sites. Currently, over 330,000 Rhode Islanders receive their care from CTC-RI practices. Over the next four years, up to 20 practices will be added each year, with the goal of providing over 500,000 Rhode Islanders with access to a PCMH.
CTC-RI and PCMH-Kids are expanding to an additional 28 practices (18 adult and 10 pediatric) in July of 2017. Click here for more information.

The mission of the Care Transformation Collaborative is to lead the transformation of primary care in Rhode Island in the context of an integrated health care system; and to improve the quality of care, the patient experience of care, the affordability of care, and the health of the populations we serve.
