Dates and Deadlines

DSRIP Statewide Learning Collaborative Summit
September 9-10, 2014

The primary goal of the Summit is to share what Texas DSRIP participants have learned from DSRIP so far in order to increase successes as we head into years 4 and 5 of the waiver. Guest speakers, anchors and providers from across the state will present on shared learning and best practices.   Technical assistance also will be included for DSRIP providers, RHP anchors and other stakeholders on topics such setting Category 3 baselines and DSRIP reporting. We will forward a full conference agenda to your attention prior to the Summit. 

In order to allow interested individuals to watch the proceedings, HHSC has arranged for the Summit to be available for viewing on-line, in real-time.  To access the Summit via webinar on September 9th and/or 10th, please go to the following link: HHSC Live Webcast.  When you access this site, please press play to begin watching on-going sessions.
