Nebraska Ag Connection - 07/12/2018

Governor Pete Ricketts and Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) CEO Dr. Courtney Phillips released DHHS' third annual business plan, titled "Mission Driven, High-Quality Services for Nebraskans." The business plan identifies and details 18 key priority initiatives that will guide the work of DHHS through the 2018-2019 fiscal year.

"Running government more like a business is helping make the State of Nebraska more effective, more efficient, and more customer-focused," said Governor Ricketts. "With their business plans, DHHS CEO Courtney Phillips and her team are helping bring greater discipline and focus to their work and more value for clients and taxpayers. Congratulations to the team on pulling together this third plan, which will help the agency better accomplish their mission of helping Nebraskans live better lives."

"The commitment by Governor Ricketts and the Department to operational excellence is delivering on his principles of strong accountability and intentional customer focus throughout all state government," said Dr. Phillips. "I am excited to share our third annual business plan which will serve as the guide to our strategic priorities and initiatives through June 2019. This plan is a continuation of our work to analyze, develop, and implement scalable solutions which will have a positive impact for those we serve."

Phillips said some of this year's initiatives will build on the progress made on last year's priorities while others provide new opportunities for DHHS and, ultimately, for those the Department serves.

The 18 initiatives are aimed at integrating services, promoting independence, focusing on prevention, leveraging technology, and increasing operating efficiencies. Each goal will result in measurable improvements and continue a commitment by the agency to be accountable and transparent.
