The Tuscan health care system strives to foster cooperation among the various organizations that provide services. Government authorities therefore believe it is important to plan and develop a transparent system capable of monitoring the economic results of the region’s 16 public health authorities and their ability to pursue and accomplish the aims of the regional health care plan. The principal aim of the Tuscan performance evaluation system is to give a general outline of the management of the region’s health care authorities. This outline is intended to be useful both for evaluating performance and for enhancing and promoting the results of the healthcare system.
