Leadership in Action

The Center connects consumer health advocates with leaders from the health policy and practice fields who are committed to creating a consumer-centered health system. These relationships can help advance innovative best practices as part of public policies and programs, and expand the reach and depth of advocacy.

Through Leadership in Action, we bring consumer health advocates together with researchers, physicians, health system leaders, nurses and social workers, to shape critical decisions about how health care is financed and delivered.  

This work is win-win: state consumer health advocates work with an experienced Senior Leader(s) who can support them with skills, ideas and connections. Senior Leaders get the chance to work with established, consumer health advocacy organizations and their partners, who are on the leading edge of consumer engagement in health system transformation.

This program builds on our successful four-year Geriatric Provider Collaboration program (supported by The John A. Hartford Foundation), which united the expertise of geriatric providers with that of consumer advocates in states that worked on the implementation of the CMS Financial Alignment Demonstrations.
