About the Hub
The Healthcare Value Hub monitors, translates, and disseminates evidence-based policies and practices that improve value to health care consumers, particularly in the areas of cost and quality. The Hub also connects advocates, researchers, and policymakers to enhance understanding of issues and to spark action on the most promising policies and initiatives. The impact of the Hub is felt nationwide, from Connecticut where our survey of consumers helped pass a drug price transparency bill to a health care reform “bootcamp” for advocates, insurers, providers and other stakeholders in Utah. Learn how we can help your organization advance change in your state and community at HealthCareValueHub.org.
