With increasing frequency, new models of care are being introduced across the country as part of broader population health management initiatives. The promotion of population health has been a longstanding goal of public health practice and policy. While much is written about the ultimate success of these new care models, comparatively less is known about their development. This report reviews the journey of the nation’s first specialty medical home for Inflammatory Bowel Disease in an attempt to identify the factors that facilitated its successful creation. It identifies the following factors as being particularly important: 1) established working relationships between stakeholders, 2) clearly defined roles, 3) usable data, 4) gathering and using patient input, 5) complementary physician-administrator strengths, and 6) willingness to assume risk. These findings can be generalized and would have applicability at health systems looking to increase the speed with which their new models of care are brought to market.
