Region 2: Texas Medicaid 1115 Waiver
Congratulations to the work regional performing providers have done to meet DSRIP project metrics and milestones which were designed to transform healthcare delivery in Texas as well as optimize health system performance through three dimensions, which we call the â€œTriple Aim:â€ 1) improving the patient experience of care, including quality and satisfaction; 2) improving the health of populations; and, 3) reducing the per capita cost of health care. Please take a few minutes to stop and celebrate your accomplishments, and use these significant results to motivate you and your colleagues to push forward to make even more substantial impact during the remainder of the current waiver period.
The RHP 2 Regional Plan submission is due to HHSC by April 30, 2018. The links below refer to the content of each tab of the plan template workbook. The public comment window is now open, and will remain so until Monday, April 23rd. Stakeholders are encouraged to review and provide feedback via this link: Survey or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
