About

State of Reform is focused on bridging the gap between health care and the policy that governs it. We do this by engaging stakeholders from each of the many siloes in state health care—including providers, health plans, lawmakers, and much more—and providing a non-partisan, policy agnostic space to discuss how to improve the health care system. Founded in 2011, State of Reform has grown to operate in 17 markets in 12 states throughout the country.

We host annual health policy conferences in 17 markets, ranging from Hawaii to Florida. State of Reform conferences are a multi-silo gathering of senior market executives and health policy leaders whose goal is to bring everyone to the table for productive conversations about the complex issues facing the health sector.

We also send out monthly/bi-weekly health policy intelligence newsletters, called “5 Things We’re Watching,” in each of the states we cover. These newsletters are a leading source of policy insights for senior health care executives and health policy leaders, and are based on journalism from our team of reporters covering state-specific topics in health policy.

Our goal is to be a platform for stakeholders to share their unique perspectives from their work in the dynamic world of health care. By providing a “safe space” for all of these voices to come together, we hope this collaboration can foster meaningful, lasting reform in the health policy sector. We strive to accomplish this through both our conferences and the content we produce. The relationships we make through our reporting directly contributes to the development of our events.
