Solving the health cost crisis in America requires bold action.
Our proven strategies are making an impact.
The rise of healthcare costs threatens America’s standard of living. It undermines wage growth and the competitiveness of American businesses. Rapid growth in health costs shuts millions out from access and undercuts funding for other pillars of America’s future, like public schools and infrastructure.
America’s Agenda restores value to healthcare by redesigning the way it’s delivered. Our programs align incentives of healthcare providers, patients, and purchasers, charting common ground to make high-value care a reality.
The result is real savings, better health outcomes, and revolutionary improvement in the patient experience.
