The Health Care Transformation Task Force Releases Stories from the Field: Implementing Principles of Person-Centered Care

WASHINGTON (June 28, 2022) – The Health Care Transformation Task Force (HCTTF or Task Force), a group of leading health care payers, providers, purchasers and patient advocacy organizations, announces today the release of a new resource titled “Stories From the Field: Implementing Principles of Person-Centered Care“, a companion implementation guide to the Task Force’s Person-Centered Care Principles released in September 2021. Health care organizations have long recognized the importance of operating effective, person-centered care programs and pursuing policies that advance health equity. Yet knowing where to begin can be challenging.  

The strategies described in the Implementation Guide reflect strong examples of how the field is innovating and progressing to achieve person-centered care,said Jeff Micklos, HCTTF Executive Director. “The Guide is a resource to aid organizations in their movement toward this goal no matter where they currently are. 

The Implementation Guide was developed in collaboration with the Task Force’s Patient-Centered Priorities Work Group and features best practices that exemplify the Task Force’s five patient-centered care principles. The Implementation Guide also includes an operational checklist of steps and processes that successful organizations can use to achieve their health equity and patient-centered goals. The models featured in this resource reflect examples of how the field is innovating and progressing. It is not meant to be viewed as an exhaustive catalogue of patient-centered care strategy implementation occurring in the field but rather as a living document, that the Task Force will update as it identifies additional examples.  


Health Care Transformation Task Force is a unique collaboration of patients, payers, providers and purchasers working to lead a sweeping transformation of the health care system. By transitioning to value-based models that support the Triple Aim of better health, better care and lower costs, the Task Force is committed to accelerating the transformation to value in health care.
