PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- HRHCare, one of the largest federally qualified health center systems in the country with a 40-year history of providing high-quality health care to underserved populations, announced on Thursday, Feb. 18, that it has joined the Health Care Transformation Task Force, a partnership of leading health-care payers, providers, purchasers and patient organizations.
With more than 40 organizations representing patients, payers, providers and purchasers, the Task Force aims to align private and public sector efforts to transform the U.S. health care system. By developing and disseminating strategy, operational and policy recommendations, it seeks to spark rapid, measurable change across the health care landscape.
As part of the Health Care Transformation Task Force, HRHCare has committed to put 75 percent of its business into value-based arrangements that focus on the triple aim of better health, better care and lower costs by 2020.
“We believe that transforming our health care system means providing affordable, accessible care for all patients,” said Anne Kauffman Nolon, president and chief executive officer of HRHCare. “Being a part of the Task Force means that we can help to shape and advance this transformation to ensure that more patients in medically underserved areas are receiving the care they need. This is something HRHCare considers a key part of our mission as a provider of community health care, and we’re proud to partner with others who feel the same way.”
“HRHCare is a welcome addition to our robust alliance, as we boldly seek to deliver the Triple Aim of better health, better care and lower costs,” said Jeff Miklos, executive director of the Task Force. “HRHCare’s expertise will be invaluable as we strive to bring higher quality and more cost effective care to medically underserved populations.”
