07 May Families USA Joins the Task Force
WASHINGTON (May 7, 2019) – The Health Care Transformation Task Force (HCTTF or Task Force) announced today that Families USA has joined its membership.
With more than 40 organizations representing patients, payers, providers and purchasers committed to accelerating the adoption of value-based payment and care delivery models, the Task Force aims to align private and public-sector efforts to transform the U.S. health care system. By developing and disseminating strategic, operational and policy recommendations, it seeks to spark rapid, measurable change across the health care landscape to lower cost, improve the quality of care, and ultimately produce better population health.
Families USA, founded in 1981 and based in Washington, D.C., is dedicated to the achievement of high-quality, affordable health care. The organization has a history of devoting their time to projects focused on making specific, strategic, and systemic improvements to the health and health care of all, particularly the more vulnerable populations. Families USA elevates the consumer voice and pursues policy solutions considering impacts of all communities and works to accelerate the transformation of the health care system through value, equity, coverage, and consumer engagement.
“Including the voice of consumers in delivery system reform is central to achieving the Task Force’s mission,” Jeff Micklos, Executive Director, HCTTF. “We are thrilled to have the highly-respected Families USA join us and bring their valuable perspective as a thoughtful transformation advocate to our work.”
“Families USA is excited to partner with members of the Task Force,” said Frederick Isasi, Executive Director of Families USA. “We are dedicated to the achievement of high-quality, affordable health care for all and have broad experience engaging with business sector stakeholders to achieve this vision.”
As a member of the Task Force, Families USA joins an alliance that shares deep operational expertise and experience while offering a strong policy voice on consumer-centered, value-based payment and care delivery. The Task Force’s Board of Directors meets quarterly and oversees six work groups that meet monthly to address a variety of value-based payment topics.
