Who We Are

The Office of Health Care Transformation (OHCT) is a key point-of-contact for health care transformation related initiatives at IDPH. The OHCT monitors federal and state-level health care issues and disseminates the key information, opportunities, and impacts to the public and other partners- internal and external to IDPH. The OHCT presents to and offers technical assistance to a variety of stakeholders. The Check-Up is a health transformation newsletter that is a key avenue to distribute this information.

  • Convening stakeholders
  • Building relationships and partnerships
  • Streamlining efforts
