Governor’s Office of Health Innovation and Transformation

The Governor’s Office of Health Innovation and Transformation (GOHIT), created by the Governor’s Executive Order, is responsible for directing Illinois’ health reform initiatives, particularly those related to the State’s Alliance for Health Innovation Plan. The Alliance for Health developed out of a six-month planning grant awarded from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. The Alliance for Health brought together all of the state’s health insurance plans, large provider organizations, public health practitioners and more than 80 business, consumer, provider and association stakeholders, to identify the innovations needed to achieve the triple aim:  achieving better health for our residents, improving the effectiveness of the delivery system and lowering costs so health care and insurance is affordable for everyone in the state. GOHIT is responsible for leading and coordinating implementation of the transformation principles in the Innovation Plan, supporting stakeholder engagement, and creating and operating an Innovation and Transformation Resource Center to provide technical assistance.
