The path to affordable and simple healthcare in Rhode Island
The strategic vision of Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island is to make healthcare affordable and simple for Rhode Island. And it’s clear we cannot do it alone. To achieve the “triple aim” of better health for our state, a simpler patient experience, and lower costs, we must collaborate to accelerate the coordination of patient care, innovate lower cost solutions, and enable consumers and providers to easily access information about healthcare choices and costs.
We are committed to these initiatives and believe this is the right way to lead and shape the state’s response to rising healthcare costs. (To learn more about our path to affordable and simple healthcare, read the recent Providence Journal op-ed from Kim Keck, our president and CEO.)
Our 2016 annual report showcases our efforts and collaborations that are leading toward higher quality, lower cost care for our state. These actions will help us achieve the triple aim as we seek to improve Rhode Island’s economy and enhance the quality of life for all who live here.
