Improving Healthcare Quality, Cost and Value

The NM Coalition for Healthcare Value’s work is too important to lose. We need new thinking and collaboration in the new healthcare environment."           - NM Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino  



The NM Coalition for Healthcare Value is the one place where those...

...who provide healthcare, those who pay for healthcare, and those concerned with the quality of healthcare come together to improve the value of the healthcare system for all the people of New Mexico.

Our Vision

Healthcare is going through many transitions and employers, as purchasers, need to be constantly informed and engaged in being part of the solution. The New Mexico Coalition for Healthcare Value is a non- profit organization. The Coalition is an employer led, multi-stakeholder coalition working to improve health and maximize the value of healthcare services by focusing on the following components – quality, transparency and cost.

OUR MISSION:  To be an innovative force for increasing the value of healthcare.

OUR VALUES:   Quality • Innovation • Education • Integrity • Transparency • Cultural Sensitivity



Disruptive innovation is bringing positive change to improving access, quality and lower costs in the U.S. healthcare system. Join your colleagues in business and healthcare at this summit to hear how specific innovations can affect New Mexico.

Our keynote, Tami Hutchison of Remedy Partners, will describe how national progress is being made in bundled payments, and moving into state and local healthcare delivery systems. Changing healthcare’s payment system is one of the most critical pieces in transforming the healthcare system.
