We solve big problems by engaging employers and healthcare stakeholders.
We believe healthcare is local and that a multi-sector collaboration approach provides the best opportunity for innovative, workable solutions to improve healthcare quality, cost and experience. Our collaborative is particularly useful in solving problems where multiple healthcare sectors can accomplish more together than alone.
Improve healthcare quality
A high value healthcare system has both high quality and reasonable pricing. It is the kind of care we want for our loved ones with equitable and exceptional outcomes that we can afford. The KHC is a community leader in healthcare measurement, quality and value work.
Make healthcare more affordable
The average employer spends $20,000 per year on healthcare for a family with the worker paying about a quarter of those premiums. Paying for the most expensive healthcare in the world does not get us better or safer care and strains government, businesses, and individuals’ budgets. Improving affordability requires employer engagement in addressing health, price, and waste in partnership with their health plans and providers.
Build healthier communities
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, according to the WHO. The KHC has worked on a variety of community health priorities over the years including obesity, chronic disease, tobacco, and diabetes. Our most recent initiatives have focused on opioid use disorder and COVID-19.
