What we do

The healthcare industry is changing, and we’re here to ensure that the change is in the right direction to increase efficiency and improve outcomes. We’re convening leaders to collaborate on solutions for tomorrow. We have three key initiatives underway, focused on making a positive contribution to progress in Chicago.

Our 2018-2019 initiatives are:

  • Illinois healthcare vision

    An HC3 work group created a policy roadmap to be released after the 2018 election that will address common areas of interest to advance our state’s health system.

  • Workforce development for the underserved

    HC3 members are working to identify unique partnership opportunities in underserved neighborhoods to promote training and workforce development.

  • Purchasing group

    The members of HC3 are forming an advisory group that can work with civic and commercial leaders in the purchasing of health care services for their employees. The objective here is to create a value-add layer of support to employers that connects with evidence-based technologies, care models, and payment configurations.

  • Ongoing programming

    HC3 regularly convenes members to explore other public-private partnerships that address important healthcare issues.
