The Health Care Transformation Task Force Membership Strengthens to Take on New 2021 Opportunities

The Task Force welcomes Humana, Lamaze International, Apervita, and Signify Health to the membership.

WASHINGTON (February 3rd, 2021) – The Health Care Transformation Task Force (HCTTF or Task Force) announced today membership growth through the addition of Humana (payer member), Lamaze International (patient member), and Apervita (a strategic partner member). HCTTF also recognized the addition of Signify Health, who joined the membership last year upon its acquisition of HCTTF member Remedy Partners, and who is now recognized as a provider member.

Established in 2014, the Task Force is an industry consortium comprised of patients, payers, providers, purchasers, and partner representatives committed to advancing delivery system transformation that drives rapid, measurable change for ourselves and our country. The Task Force serves as a resource and convener for members as well as a leading public voice on value-based payment models with the aim to align private and public-sector efforts to transform the U.S. health care system through adoption of value-based payment and care delivery models.

“The imperative for the health care industry to move the needle on advancing value-based payment models continues and 2021 is likely to present great opportunities to push forward on this journey,” said Jeff Micklos, Executive Director of the Health Care Transformation Task Force. “The expertise and perspectives that our new members bring to the Task Force will contribute greatly to our longstanding efforts to bring about systemic change.”

“The commitment and qualities these organizations bring to our membership are very strong,” said Blair Childs, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs, Premier. “Together, these multi-sector partners, will help HCTTF move the health care system to one that delivers high-quality, affordable, and equitable care to all Americans.”
