With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Arnold Ventures, the Healthcare Value Hub provides free, timely information about the policies and practices needed to achieve health systems that are equitable, affordable, and focused on the goals and needs of the people the system is meant to serve. The Healthcare Value Hub was launched in March 2015 within Consumer Reports. As of July 1, 2017, the Hub is part of Altarum.
The Hub offers both online and hands-on support, with a staff dedicated to monitoring, translating and disseminating evidence, as well as connecting advocates, researchers and policymakers to build communities and create action for a patient-centered, high-value healthcare system.
This website provides a road map to the key concepts and research findings to help advocates work on these issues, as well as publications, glossaries and infographics.
