Recognizing the need to develop a shared vision of health and health care delivery for the State of Texas, the Institute has launched the Shared Vision Project. To create this vision, the Institute is providing forums for dialogue among the leaders of Texas' health care providers, payers, and consumers for informed decision-making. This collaborative effort is a statewide effort that brings all stakeholders together to provide leadership in developing innovative products and ideas to improve the state's quality of health care.

The Shared Vision for Health Care Project is providing a forum for leaders to build consensus on achieving access, effectiveness and efficiency in health care.
