The Future of Healthier Washington: Webinar


The first webinar in the 2019 Healthier Washington Quarterly Webinar series will explore the future of Healthier Washington, as the initiative moved into a new phase. 

Healthier Washington's State Innovation Model (SIM) grant ends in just two weeks, on January 31. This four-year, federal grant sparked the creation of the multi-sector, multi-agency Healthier Washington initiative. It kicked off the state-led portion of the health systems transformation, and built a new foundation for health system change. 

Healthier Washington remains focused on: 

  • Care that supports the whole person
  • A payment system that rewards value rather than volume, and supports providers to succeed
  • A collaborative, regional, and community-based approach. 

A question and answer period will follow the presentation. 

Presenters are: 

  • Sue Birch, Director, Washington State Health Care Authority
  • Bonnie Wennerstrom, SIM Project Director and Healthier Washington Connector, HCA
  • Maria Courogen, Special Assistant, Systems Transformation Department of Health
  • Kennedy Soileau, Deputy Director, Communications, HCA
