What is Healthcare Workforce Transformation?
Rhode Island, like all states, is striving to achieve the “triple aim” of better care, healthier people, and smarter spending in our health system. To make progress towards these ambitious goals, RI will need to train, deploy, and support a workforce that is prepared with new skills to work in new ways that will achieve better results while controlling costs.
The EOHHS Healthcare Workforce Transformation Committee is working to answer the following questions for Rhode Island:
- How are healthcare jobs changing and what new skills does our healthcare workforce need to keep up?
- What do educators and students need to know about the health care jobs of the future?
- How can healthcare providers partner with schools to create a well-prepared talent pipeline?
- How can policy-makers and payers support healthcare workforce innovations that will improve the health of Rhode Islanders?
