Evolent Health Joins Department of Health and Human Services in Launch of Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - March 25, 2015) - Evolent Health, the leader in helping progressive health care systems build and own the path to value-based care, today joins the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) at both the White House and HHS' offices for the launch of the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network. In early 2015, HHS set a goal of tying 30 percent of Medicare payments to quality or value, with 50 percent of payments tied to such models by the end of 2018. HHS' action network -- with representation across the private, public and non-profit sectors -- includes partners joined in transforming the nation's health system through an emphasis on value over volume.

"We are honored to participate in HHS' Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network," said Frank Williams, Chief Executive Officer of Evolent. "In so doing, we proudly represent our national network of leading health care systems as they transform health and health care in the communities they serve. Our participation is also directly aligned with our membership in the Health Care Transformation Task Force."

Achieving industry-wide improvement requires strong and broad-based partnership. By participating in this network, Evolent's goal is to speed the transition to alternative, value-based payment models in keeping with the Company's mission of changing the nation's health by changing the way health care is delivered.
