Tennessee Health Care Innovation Initiative



“Over the next 5 years, the Tennessee Health Care Innovation Initiative will shift a majority of health care spending, both public and private away from fee for service to three outcomes based payment strategies…With these efforts, it's our hope that Tennessee will be at the forefront of a national trend that is expected to gain momentum in the coming years.”
