Health Innovation

What is Health Innovation in Pennsylvania?

Many states are exploring innovative approaches to transform health and health care delivery. The Commonwealth's Health Innovation in Pennsylvania (HIP) plan is a comprehensive, multi-stakeholder statewide initiative to improve the health of all Pennsylvanians by redesigning the way we pay for, deliver, and coordinate health and health care services. The plan includes strategies to advance population health, health information technology, and workforce development. Led by Governor Wolf, the HIP plan, once implemented, will lead to better care, smarter spending, and healthier Pennsylvanians.

The effort to transform health and health care delivery in Pennsylvania recognizes that collaboration is key to success across payers, providers, health systems, public health, business leaders, foundations, consumer groups, academic health centers, community-based agencies, professional health associations, and state agencies.
