Regional Coalition Collaboration Guide


Regional Coalition Collaboration Guide


An essential component of implementing value-driven health care is creating a national network of regional coalitions. This guide can help community leaders create and sustain regional coalitions. Through reports from six pilot sites that have successfully built and managed regional coalitions, community leaders can read about first steps, leadership building, and community initiatives to create a value-driven health care system.

Topics in the guide include:

  • Introduction
  • Leadership
  • Developing and maintaining relationships
  • Establishing credibility and value
  • Building trust
  • Funding and sustainability
  • Governance
  • Legal issues
  • Developing metrics/data collection
  • Marketing
  • Measuring success
  • Improvement support
The appendixes include overviews for each pilot site, a chart comparing the sites, the framework behind the site visits, summaries of the site visits, a list of mentors who community leaders may contact for advice, and resources.
