ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION:
The Peterson Center on Healthcare (“the Center”) is a non-profit organization dedicated to making higher quality, more affordable healthcare a reality for all Americans. The organization is working to transform U.S. healthcare into a high-performance system by finding innovative solutions that improve quality and lower costs, and accelerating their adoption on a national scale. Established by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, the Center collaborates with stakeholders across the healthcare system and engages in grant-making, partnerships, and research. Two specific grant-making portfolios within the Center include the following:
Recognizing that the healthcare system too often fails those who need it the most, the Center has been working to improve the quality and lower the cost of care for high-need patients since 2015. High-need individuals have clinically complex needs, functional limitations, and/or behavioral health conditions, and are more likely to incur high healthcare costs.
In an effort to glean generalizable learnings around scaling healthcare delivery innovations, the Center also funds a growing portfolio of special projects that fall outside its current program areas. Many of these projects have the potential to become part of new standalone focus areas in the future.
