The Pennsylvania’s Coalition for the CommonHealth is an outgrowth from the Integrated Care Summit and Pennsylvania Psychiatric Leadership Counsel (PPLC). The group has been formulated to address state level planning and policy issues that will facilitate (or impede) a state health care system that is designed to achieve the “Triple Aims” within Pennsylvania’s health care system: improving the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction); improving the health of populations; and reducing the per capita cost of health care.”
Work from the Coalition thus far has included meetings with the Secretary for the Department of Human Services, Teresa Miller, her key staff, and key staff in the Office of Governor Wolf. The response from our state leaders has been clear and encouraging.
Many planning and policy decisions are driven from the top down by policy makers and payers. The Coalition plans to work collaboratively but aggressively to inform future decisions from our unique perspective. As Secretary Miller wisely noted follow a recent meeting with Coalition representatives; “thanks for engaging with us. Your perspective (boots on the ground) is absolutely critical if we are truly going to be responsive to those we serve.”
Read the letter from the Pennsylvania's Coalition for the CommonHealth to Secretary Miller.
Our Vision: “To create and maintain an integrated behavioral and physical health care system based on the principles and practices of the “Triple Aim.”
Our Mission: “To work collaboratively with all four Departments and the Governor‘s Office to develop and maintain the policies and procedures, interagency collaboration/cooperation and communication structures and protocols to realize the Vision.
