Governor’s Office of Health Innovation and Transformation

  • Overview


In the last several years, Health & Medicine's health policy leadership has been essential to carrying out Affordable Care Act implementation and state health reform initiatives in Illinois. In 2015, the Governor’s Office called on Health & Medicine to serve as a lead coordinator for Governor’s Office of Health Innovation and Transformation (GOHIT) and its efforts to develop a health reform implementation plan for Illinois. Over the approximately six month project, Health & Medicine worked with 900+ stakeholders, participating in and overseeing 30+ committees, and ensuring that stakeholder voices informed the initiative.

The results of thousands of hours of work by diverse healthcare stakeholders from across the state, the GOHIT process yielded numerous impactful policy recommendations that can contribute to the improved provision of healthcare in Illinois. As leaders in the GOHIT process, Health & Medicine volunteered to host the archive of the reports and resources that came out of the initiative as resource for those working to advance health policy reform in Illinois.
