CPR knows from experience that many of the toughest challenges facing employers today can’t be solved alone. Collaboratives allow innovative health care purchasers to work alongside their peers and industry experts to share experiences, identify solutions, and develop a path forward.
A Collaborative is a small group of employers and other health care purchasers working together to tackle a specific health care purchasing challenge or learn more about a specific topic over a defined period of time. Here’s what you can expect from the Collaborative experience:
Multiple Collaboratives designed to tackle top-of-mind topics for employers are underway. Check back regularly for updates on how the work is unfolding. As each Collaborative wraps up, CPR will spotlight insights and share generalized tools resulting from our work.

There is a fee for participating in our Collaboratives, which is determined based on the duration, format, and structure of each effort. This fee is used its in entirety to help offset the cost that Catalyst for Payment Reform incurs by facilitating these Collaboratives on an ongoing basis, i.e. includes content development, meeting facilitation, and subject matter expertise.
If you would like to learn more about these efforts or get involved in a future Collaborative, please contact Ryan Olmstead, Director of Member Services, at [email protected]
Our Collaboratives are supported by the Peterson Center on Healthcare as part of an
initiative to help employers be more effective purchasers of healthcare. Learn more.
