The California Right Care Initiative’s goal is to apply scientific evidence and outcomes improvement strategies to reduce preventable morbidity and mortality among Californians. The effort started with a focus on California’s 25 million managed health plan enrollees, and has now opened up its efforts to spread best practices to all California medical directors, pharmacy directors and quality improvement directors regardless of delivery system to benefit as many patients as possible. The California Department of Managed Healthcare (DMHC) publicly launched the Right Care Initiative with NCQA and the Deans of the UC Berkeley and UCLA Schools of Public Health in March 2008 at the first annual Clinical Quality Improvement Leadership Summit. The Right Care Initiative’s implementation actions include the annual statewide Right Care summit, cardiovascular disease and diabetes research at UC Berkeley, and community-focused efforts to reach Right Care Initiative’s goals in LA, Sacramento, and San Diego through the monthly University of Best Practices consortium.
