Logos with text reading Building Partnerships for Better Health: Launching North Carolina's State Transformation Collaborative



The State Transformation Collaborative is a joint public-private initiative designed to advance value-based and person-centered care by building partnerships to advance health for all. North Carolina is one of four states—along with Colorado, California, and Arkansas—to be selected to participate in this groundbreaking initiative operated by the Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network. With federal engagement, state leadership, and multi-stakeholder collaboration, North Carolina’s State Transformation Collaborative provides a unique opportunity to improve population health, enhance patient experience, reduce health care costs, and decrease administrative demands on health care providers, while simultaneously advancing health equity. 

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Division of Health Benefits, the Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network (LAN), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy launched the North Carolina’s State Transformation Collaborative during a public event on February 2, 2023.

Summary of Pre-STC Activities

Duke-Margolis completed preliminary interviews and convenings to identify priority areas for multi-stakeholder alignment in payment and delivery reforms. Duke-Margolis developed strategies and potential actions by combining stakeholder feedback with additional research on existing federal and state initiatives. Stakeholders included clinically integrated networks, NC Prepaid Health Plans, commercial payers/purchasers, primary care providers, federally-qualified health centers, and health systems. The image below summarizes the framework for North Carolina’s State Transformation Collaborative.
