    Congratulations to the Governor-elect Baker, Lt. Governor-elect Polito, Auditor Bump, Attorney General-elect Healey, and their teams! Our team at the Health Policy Commission (HPC) is looking forward to working with you and is ready to provide whatever information you need to ensure a smooth transition.

    The HPC, established by the Commonwealth’s landmark health care cost containment law, Chapter 224 of the Acts of 2012, is an independent state agency governed by an 11-member board with diverse experience in health care. The HPC is leading efforts to advance the Commonwealth’s ambitious goal of bringing health care spending growth in line with the growth in the state’s overall economy through the development of evidence-based policy and the identification of collaborative solutions. The HPC’s various policy committees engage in health care cost trends research through publication of the Annual Cost Trends Report; market monitoring through Notices of Material Change, Cost and Market Impact Reviews, and the Registration of Provider Organizations Program; accelerating care delivery and payment innovation through the creation of criteria for Accountable Care Organizations and Patient Centered Medical Homes; and market investment through the $120 million community hospital investment program. Our values of innovation, accountability, and transparency are at the core of Chapter 224 and the HPC’s mission.

    Through these work streams and more, the HPC strives to promote 1) a value-based market in which payers and providers openly compete to provide services and in which consumers and employers have the appropriate information and incentives to make high-value choices for their care and coverage options, and 2) a high-quality health care delivery system in which providers efficiently deliver coordinated, patient-centered health care that integrates behavioral and physical health and produces better outcomes and improved health status.

    I invite you to review our website to learn about the HPC’s work to make our health care system more transparent, affordable, and accessible for the citizens of the Commonwealth.
