Congratulations to the work regional performing providers have completed to meet DSRIP project metrics and milestones which are designed to transform healthcare delivery in Texas as well as optimize health system performance through three dimensions, which we call the Triple Aim of Healthcare: 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.
