About Us

Launched in 2015 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network (LAN) is a public-private partnership established to accelerate transition in the healthcare system from a fee-for-service (FFS) payment model to ones that pays providers for quality care, improved health, and lower costs.  The LAN is led by a Guiding Committee that provides executive leadership and strategic direction to accelerate achieving the goals described below. The LAN offers stakeholders a broad portfolio of resources to facilitate that transition, including the APM Framework, primary care and maternity care APM resource banks, and white papers on a wide range of topics related to designing episode-based and population-based alternative payment models.


The goals of the LAN include:

  • Linking 50% of all healthcare payment in the U.S. to quality and value through APMs by 2018
  • Increasing the alignment of APM components, such as quality measures, risk adjustment, and data sharing, within and across the public and private sectors
  • Diffusing cutting-edge knowledge and promising practices on operationalizing APMs to accelerate the design, testing, and implementation of APMs

Launch Event

On March 25, 2015, the LAN’s kickoff meeting featured opening remarks by former HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell and President Obama. Participants included chief executive officers and senior leaders from across the health care community, including providers, payers, employers, patients, consumer groups, health experts, and state and federal government agencies. Participants represented a wide variety of interests including publicly traded companies, nonprofit organizations, urban facilities, rural providers, small practices, large systems, and national associations. This broad stakeholder participation will be critical to achieving the LAN’s goal of increasing the adoption of APMs that improve quality and reduce costs.

The Guiding Committee is the primary leadership body of the LAN. The Guiding Committee meets monthly and carries out its responsibilities by collaborating with the CMS Alliance to Modernize Healthcare (CAMH) on strategy, establishing and overseeing work groups, and actively engaging stakeholders across the LAN to encourage commitments, share and disseminate results, and accelerate learning. Guiding Committee members serve as ambassadors and liaisons to the communities in which they participate.

View the Guiding Committee here.

Consumer and Patient Affinity Group (CPAG)

The Consumer and Patient Affinity Group (CPAG) is a channel for consumer and patient advocacy groups to provide important insights into the impact of APMs on patients and consumers, describe better health outcomes from the perspective of consumers and patients and define the care experience that APMs should deliver. CPAG members help identify consumer priorities and principles for APMs and inform the work of the Guiding Committee and Work Groups.

CMS Alliance to Modernize Healthcare (CAMH)

The MITRE Corporation, as the operator of the CMS Alliance to Modernize Healthcare (CAMH) Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC), is convening and independently managing the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network (LAN) Guiding Committee and Work Groups . MITRE is a not-for-profit operating strictly in the public interest. The LAN project is led by CAMH.
