WHY: The Need


A neutral, trusted organization through which the community can plan, facilitate, and coordinate the many different activities required for successful healthcare system transformation. •

One of the greatest challenges facing the nation is making healthcare more affordable while maintaining and improving its quality and improving population health.

Evidence is clear that healthcare costs can be significantly reduced by improving the quality and appropriateness of care and engaging community members to work together to improve population health.

Given the complexity of the healthcare system, the need to coordinate across organizations and sectors, and the barriers to change, coordinated multi-faceted and multi-stakeholder approaches are needed if healthcare reform efforts are to succeed.

Since all healthcare stakeholders in a community – consumers, providers, purchasers, etc. – will be affected in significant ways, they all need to be involved in planning and implementing change.

Because there is often considerable distrust and lack of coordination between different stakeholder groups, a neutral facilitator is usually needed to help design true “win-win” solutions.

Through collaborative leadership and a focus on community benefit, regions can break down silos and promote alignment. Technical assistance and support can further improvement efforts, and measurement and reporting can track progress, identify best practices, and ensure accountability.

New relationships across disciplines and sectors to build trust and promote alignment of efforts.
