Governor’s Office of Health Innovation and Transformation
In the fall of 2012 the federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, created and funded in the Affordable Act, offered states a $2 million planning grant to achieve better health for their residents, improve the effectiveness of their delivery systems and lower costs so health care and insurance is affordable for everyone in the state—the triple aim. In the spring of 2013, Illinois was awarded this competitive six-month, governor’s office led, consensus building grant. In April, the Alliance for Health was created, which engaged 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 that triple aim. Illinois created the Office of Health Innovation and Transformation to replace the existing Office of Health Information Technology and is charged with carrying out the ground-breaking Innovation Plan created by the Alliance for Health.
