The LAN’s Consumer and Patient Affinity Group (CPAG) held its Leadership Committee meeting on March 29 to discuss how it may adapt its CPAG Principles to the broader scope and purpose of the LAN, and communicate those Principles meaningfully and effectively to diverse patient, governmental, and other organizational audiences, including additional LAN Work Groups, in order to obtain useful feedback. The CPAG members were also encouraged to engage with the CPAG or their Work group Co-Chairs after the meeting should they wish to provide additional feedback on the content and use of the CPAG Principles.

Clinical Episodes Payment (CEP) Work Group member Carol Sakala briefed the CPAG on the status of the Maternity Care White Paper and invited the CPAG’s feedback on the maternity care payment model as it involves engaging women and families to obtain quality metrics for women-reported outcomes and experience in maternity care. Those with additional thoughts and recommendations on the maternity care payment model were encouraged to contact Carol directly at

To achieve the goal of better care, smarter spending, and healthier people, the U.S. health care system must substantially reform its payment structure to incentivize quality, health outcomes, and value over volume. The Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network (LAN) was established as a collaborative network of public and private stakeholders, including health plans, providers, patients, employers, consumers, states, federal agencies, and other partners within the health care community.
