The Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI), a leader in transforming U.S. health care through community-based, multi-stakeholder, public-private efforts, supports the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) initiative to move the Medicare program and the health care system at large, toward paying providers based on the quality, rather than the quantity of care. Today at the White House, NRHI’s President and CEO, Elizabeth Mitchell will join HHS Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell and President Obama, along with stakeholders from over 100 organizations representing every corner of the health care industry, to kick off the launch of the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network, a key component of the HHS initiative. President Obama will deliver remarks on how the health care law is improving health care quality and lowering costs.
