The Multi-State Collaborative is a learning network for states and regions working on multi-payer primary care transformation
Transforming primary care to be more accessible and effective is essential to improving population health and reducing costs. But this can only occur if changes to the primary care delivery system include payment reform coordinated across all payers.
The Multi-State Collaborative (MC) is a voluntary group of leaders who are representatives of state- or region-based, multi-payer, primary care transformation initiatives.
