The Cabinet was established to advise Governor Dannel P. Malloy, Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman and the Office of Health Reform & Innovation on issues related to federal health reform implementation and development of an integrated healthcare system for Connecticut.
The Cabinet may convene working groups, which include volunteer healthcare experts, to make recommendations concerning the development and implementation of service delivery and healthcare provider payment reforms, including multi-payer initiatives, medical homes, electronic health records and evidenced-based healthcare quality improvement.
The Cabinet has convened four Working Groups to explore distinct elements of the impact of pharmaceutical costs on Connecticut's healthcare system, as well as current legislative and administrative initiatives in Connecticut and across the nation to address this, and to develop strategies to reduce these healthcare costs, increase transparency in healthcare and costs, promote consumer engagement and education. Updates on each Working Group's efforts can be found here.
The Cabinet is Chaired by Victoria Veltri, Executive Director of the Office of Health Strategy.
