Criteria for Selecting Reforming States Group (RSG) Projects

The following criteria were selected by the RSG Steering Committee to guide in the selection of RSG projects:

  1. Addresses an emerging or chronic health policy issue of interest to a broad range of states
  2. Few resources are available elsewhere to assist policymakers to address the issue
  3. Benefits from applying the RSG’s values of nonpartisanship, executive/legislative cooperation, and candid communication
  4. Big impact on Triple Aim (improving the patient experience of care, improving the health of populations, and reducing the per capita cost of health care)
  5. Clearly defined purpose and outcome
  6. Evidence of promising practices is available
  7. Will yield practical, timely results that can be applied to real world problems
