RSVP PLEASE: Region 2 1115 Waiver Regional Meeting – 09/10/2015

Dear RHP 2 Performing Providers & Stakeholders:

Attached is the [meeting agenda] for the upcoming Region 2 Waiver meeting that will be held on UTMB’s main campus in Galveston from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm next Thursday, September 10th.

Given the great interest in “Waiver 2.0” (proposed extension/renewal), we are expecting representatives from the majority of RHP 2 hospitals and behavioral health centers to attend in-person.  However, we will offer a dial-in option as well for those unable to physically join us.

As you will see, we have a full agenda that includes recaps from the recent HHSC DSRIP Statewide Learning Collaborative Summit that was held last week in Austin.  We will also spotlight a few regional projects that received statewide exposure and exemplify many of the core transformational components/qualities of the 1115 Waiver.

Katrina Lambrecht and our entire RHP 2 Anchor Office team look forward to welcoming you to UTMB next week and continuing the collaborative work that has made our region so successful to date!

Please RSVP if you plan to attend in-person as soon as possible or by 12:00 pm, Tuesday, September 8th latest.  Respond to Bobbie Guyton via e-mail or phone:  bjguyton@utmb.edu or 409-766-4045. 

Thank you,

Craig
