  • Assist certain non-profit community hospitals to successfully transition to new health care payment and delivery models;
  • Enhance the training, education, and skill development programs for health care workers;
  • Strengthen the primary care workforce;
  • Develop, evaluate, and advance promising pilot or demonstration projects for innovative approaches to contain health care cost and improve quality.
