Health Care Transformation and Innovation

Kelly Hall, Senior Director

The Health Care Transformation and Innovation (HCTI) department is responsible for developing a coordinated strategy to advance care delivery transformation policy and programs, including developing and implementing the agency’s investment strategy. HCTI is responsible for administering several grant programs designed to catalyze care delivery transformation in the Commonwealth. The Community Hospital Acceleration, Revitalization, and Transformation (CHART) program, the Health Care Innovation Investment (HCII) program, and the SHIFT-Care Challenge collectively represent a key component of the HPC’s efforts to increase health care quality, equity, and access while reducing cost growth in the Commonwealth. HCTI also advances the Commonwealth’s goals of accelerating adoption of new integrated care models through state certification programs for patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) and accountable care organizations (ACOs) and enhanced transparency of such efforts. The department – in collaboration with other state agencies and stakeholders – works to promote and align innovative care delivery and payment models and address upstream causes of poor health outcomes. Through these efforts, HCTI supports the HPC’s vision of a care delivery system that reduces spending and improves health for all residents by delivering coordinated, patient-centered, and efficient health care that reflects patients’ behavioral, social, and medical needs. HCTI is led by Kelly Hall.
