Event Details

The first webinar in the 2019 Healthier Washington Quarterly Webinar series will explore the future of Healthier Washington, as the initiative moves into a new phase.

Healthier Washington’s State Innovation Model (SIM) grant ended on January 31, 2019. This four-year, federal grant sparked the creation of the multi-sector, multi-agency Healthier Washington initiative. It kicked off the state-led portion of health systems transformation, and built a new foundation for health system change.

Healthier Washington remains focused on:

  • Care that supports the whole person.
  • A payment system that rewards value rather than volume, and supports providers to succeed.
  • A collaborative, regional, and community-based approach.

A question and answer period will follow the presentation.

Presenters are:

  • Sue Birch, Director, Washington State Health Care Authority
  • Bonnie Wennerstrom, SIM Project Director and Healthier Washington Connector, HCA
  • Maria Courogen, Special Assistant, Systems Transformation, Department of Health
  • Kennedy Soileau, Deputy Director, Communications, HCA
