Healthy Rhode Island is a project of the Office of Lt. Governor, in conjunction with Governor Chafee’s Office, the Executive Office of Health and Human Services, the Office of Health Insurance Commissioner, the Department of Health, and the Health Benefits Exchange, focused on the future of the health care system in Rhode Island. Healthy Rhode Island seeks to chart Rhode Island’s course from a volume-­‐based health care system to a value-­‐based health care system. The transformation will be grounded in the principles of the Triple Aim – better population health and a better care experience at a lower cost. Healthy Rhode Island is Rhode Island’s State Innovation Model Design Program, an initiative funded by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI).
