SustiNet board releases final report

The SustiNet Health Partnership board released its final recommendations Friday in a 242-page document. The proposal will now go to the state legislature, which along with Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, must sign off on any plan.

The board’s report says implementing SustiNet could save the state between $226 million and $277 million a year, beginning in 2014. The projected savings, based on modeling by a board consultant, would come largely from federal money made available through health reform and delivery system changes aimed at slowing the growth of health care costs.

For a shorter summary of the recommendations, here’s what we reported last month.
