HHS Designates 11 Communities Working to Improve Quality and Value of Health Care As Chartered Value Exchanges
Date:9/3/2008

WASHINGTON, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- HHS Secretary Mike Leavitt today welcomed 11 more community collaborations to a growing national movement to build a health care system where consumers, providers and payers make decisions based on the value and quality of care.

These communities will join 14 others as Chartered Value Exchanges (CVEs) -- local collaborations of health care providers, employers, insurers, and consumers working jointly to improve care and make quality and price information widely available.

"Local public-private collaboration is essential to achieving a health system based on quality and value," Secretary Leavitt said. "The most effective strategy for achieving long-term improvement is the development of national measures and standards and the implementation of local solutions to utilize them.

"With this distinction we are doing two things," Secretary Leavitt said. "We are recognizing the work these communities have already done to improve care. And we are giving them new tools to advance their efforts to implement -- at the local level -- a value-driven health care market."

The new Chartered Value Exchanges are as follows:

-- Aligning Forces for Quality, York, Pa.

-- California Chartered Value Exchange, San Francisco, Calif.

-- The Colorado Chartered Value Exchange, Denver, Colo.

-- eHealth Connecticut, Inc., Middletown, Conn.

-- Greater Louisville Value Exchange Partnership, Louisville, Ky.

-- Health Improvement Collaborative of Greater Cincinnati and HealthBridge, Cincinnati, Ohio

-- Kansas City Quality Improvement Consortium, Kansas City, Mo.

-- Michigan Health Information Alliance, Mt. Pleasant, Mich.

-- Nevada Partnership for Value-driven Health Care, Las Vegas, Nev.

-- Quality Health First program, Managed by the Indiana Health Information Exchange, Indianapolis, Ind.

-- Virginia Health Care Alliance, Glen Allen, Va.
