New opportunities for advancing population health and building on Vermont's strong foundation of primary care and community collaboration


May 7, 2019
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and Conference Center 
870 Williston Road, Burlington, VT 05403



The Blueprint Annual Conference is a yearly opportunity for Blueprint team members from around the state – and our colleagues working in primary care, population health, mental health and substance use disorder treatment services, and other areas of the health and human services systems – to gather and think together about what’s next.

This year, the conference will consider new opportunities for advancing population health, building on Vermont’s strong foundation of primary care and community collaboration. We’ll explore:

  • Primary care’s role in population health – national trends and local perspectives
  • Innovations in complex care
  • Community-led reinvestment strategies with long-term impact
  • New approaches to sourcing and sharing data in service of population health


  1. Explore the role of primary care in population health, including national trends and local perspectives
  2. Learn about innovations shaping the practice of complex care
  3. Understand how some communities are organizing to plan reinvestments of health systems savings in population health projects, with an eye to long-term outcomes
  4. Encourage new thinking about how we might collect, share, and use data in service of population health
