The Government has announced the 2019 plans for the Sláintecare programme.
Sláintecare is the strategy for a major transformation of health and social care services in Ireland.
It's set to be implemented over the next decade.
The strategy's aimed at shifting away from the acute hospital sector towards primary and social care.
It's hoped the shift will help reduce waiting lists and waiting times, as well as overall improving population health.
This year, efforts will focus on four 'workstreams'.
There are plans for dozens of extra beds across the Mater, Cork, Drogheda and Tipperary hospitals.
Around 200 additional beds are also expected as part of the next 'winter plan'.
Elsewhere, officials will work to agree a new "organisational and operational structure" for future health services.
They'll also develop proposals for how to provide universal services "at no or low cost to the patient".
"Detailed and comprehensive plan"
Dr Tom Keane, chair of the Sláintecare Implementation Advisory Council said the plan is "deeply rooted" in the original vision for Sláintecare.
He explained: "As I know from experience, implementation does not happen overnight.
"However, with the keen focus on structured delivery that this Action Plan presents, I am confident that we have identified and sequenced the first essential steps needed to create the foundations for an Irish health and social care service that, in due course, will provide the right service, in the right place, at the right time".
Health Minister Simon Harris added: "It is a detailed and comprehensive plan for 2019 which firmly establishes a programmatic approach to the delivery of the Sláintecare Strategy."
Sláintecare plans emerged from the Oireachtas Future of Healthcare Committee in 2017.
The committee secured all-party agreement for the plan, which will require an investment of around €5.8bn over the next ten years.
