Who We Are

About the Coalition

The New Mexico Coalition for Healthcare Value (Coalition), a 501(c)3, employer-led, multi-stakeholder dues-paying member coalition works collaboratively to enhance population health in our state by increasing the value of our healthcare system with a focus on transparency, quality, and cost.

Having originated from a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q) initiative, the NM Coalition has grown into an independent, dues-paying member organization. It provides employer tools, data and information, as well as impartial forums where private and public partners engage in aligning efforts that drive meaningful change in the state's healthcare system. The Coalition's employer members best use their strength in numbers by working together and having a strong “voice” in advocacy, policy and sharing of best practices.

"The Coalition provides needed services for our members, like valued learning seminars with top speakers, for healthcare purchasers, providers and insurers on relevant concerns, best practices, and innovations taking place in the field," said Mark Tyndall, past Chair of the Coalition. "We follow trends, policies and advances in the healthcare system, like pricing transparency, and we also research and publish practical employer tools--like our Employers Guide to NM Health Plans--to improve our healthcare system." Tim Rivera, Vice Chair of the Coalition said the Coalition is strengthening the combined voice of its employer members, and, as such, "welcomes new members, both small and larger employers/purchasers, in joining us."
