About Health Reform - Guiding Principles

We felt it was important to establish a set of principles to guide our health reform work.  

  1. The purpose of the health care reform initiative is to improve the health of Minnesotans and to redesign care to improve value (quality/costs).

  2. We must “start with the end in mind” and always remain focused on what we want to accomplish and what success looks like.

  3. To ensure that all Minnesotans benefit, we will aim for market-wide implementation of health reforms—not just reforms for government programs.

  4. We will seek—and expect—unprecedented collaboration among public and private partners as we implement the comprehensive health reform initiative.
