The Task Force’s Mission, Guiding Principles, Work and Advisory Groups




Formed in 2014, the Health Care Transformation Task Force serves as a private sector driver for health system transformation. Our mission is to bring together patients, providers, payers, and health care purchasers who share a commitment to implementing innovations that accelerate the transition to a sustainable, cost efficient, consumer focused health care delivery system built on value-based care. Our immediate goal is for our members to have 75 percent of their business in value-based payment arrangements by the end of 2025.   

About Us:  


The Health Care Transformation Task Force is a non-profit, private sector consortium comprised of patient advocacy organizations, providers, payers, and health care purchasers dedicated to accelerating the pace of transformation to a health care delivery system that achieves equitable outcomes through high-quality, affordable, and person-centered care.  


To reach this goal, the Task Force believes that the health care system must transition away from fee-for-service payment models that reward the volume of care delivered; to value-based payment models which reward high-quality outcomes and positive patient experiences at reduced cost. To this end, Task Force members aspire to having 75 percent of their business in value-based payment models by the end of 2025.  


We strive to provide a critical mass of policy, operational, and technical support from the private sector that, when combined with the work led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and other public and private stakeholders, increases the momentum of delivery system transformation.  



The Health Care Transformation Task Force envisions a sustainable, cost-effective, and wellness focused health care system that: (1) delivers accessible, affordable, equitable, coordinated, and high-quality care for all, (2) is person-centered; recognizing the worth, dignity, and goals of all individuals and communities, and (3) aligns incentives across providers, patients, and payers and equips them with the tools, information, and flexibility to deliver and receive the right care at the right place and at the right time.   

Guiding Principles

The Task Force and its members abide by a set of guiding principles and membership commitments. These principles were developed through member consensus and reflect themes of industry collaboration, accountability, patient centricity, transparency, balanced provider performance standards and appropriate financial incentives, among others.

Work & Advisory Groups

Our Work and Advisory Groups are comprised of members and, in the case of Work Groups, invited subject matter experts. Our Work and Advisory Groups produce tools and resources for the public, comment on value-related policy, identify opportunities for execution leadership, and serve as forums for organizations to share learnings with one another.
