HPC Policy Committees

The HPC's Board is divided into two standing policy committees: Market Oversight and Transparency, and Care Delivery Transformation

On December 12, 2017, the HPC Board voted to replace the standing committees on Quality Improvement and Patient Protection, Cost Trends and Market Performance, Care Delivery and Payment System Transformation, and Community Hospital Investment and Consumer Involvement. Those committees were replaced with the following standing committees: Market Oversight and Transparency and Care Delivery Transformation, with the duties and focus areas as described and the appointments as made by the Chair.
