The Department of Health and Human Services on Monday unveiled a three-pronged National Quality Strategy that calls for developing patient-centered care, reducing costs, and improving general public health by supporting “proven interventions” that address unhealthy behavioral, social, and environmental issues.

The strategy was called for under the Affordable Care Act and marks the first effort to create national aims and priorities to guide local, state, and national efforts to improve healthcare, the Department of Health and Human Services said.
