CIVHC Tackles Payment Reform, System Redesign

Colorado’s Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC) brought together more than 60 stakeholders from around the state last month to develop specific consensus recommendations
for payment reform and delivery system redesign in Colorado over the next five years.

“We have reached a point where we are questioning the federal government’s
role in health care and where we cannot produce enough wealth to pay for our health system,” CIVHC Board Chair Jay Want, MD, told the group at the start of the day-long gathering.

Considering the current climate of health care reform and the wrangling over legislation at a federal level, Want expressed his belief that “as communities and as states, we can advance reform models faster and better than the 50 states as a whole.”
