§ 5. Purpose of Act. The General Assembly finds that it is vital for the State of Illinois to find methods to improve the health care outcomes of patients served by the healthcare programs operated by the Department of Healthcare and Family Services. Improving a patient's health not only benefits the patient's quality of life but also results in a more efficient use of the resources needed to provide care. Estimates show that the Long Term Acute Care Hospital Quality Improvement Transfer Program established under this Act could save approximately $10,000,000 annually. The program focuses on some of the most severely injured and ill patients in the State of Illinois. It is designed to better utilize the specialized services available in the State to improve these patients' health outcomes and to enhance the continuity and coordination of care for these patients. This program serves as one of the many pieces needed to reform the State of Illinois' healthcare programs to better serve the people of the State of Illinois.
