About the Collaborative

The Kentuckiana Health Collaborative (KHC) is a non-profit organization comprised of representatives who have a major stake in improving the health status and the healthcare delivery system in Greater Louisville and Kentucky. The KHC creates a space for multiple stakeholders to work collaboratively toward the Triple Aim goals of Better Health, Better Care, and Better Value. 


The mission of the KHC is to coordinate action-oriented efforts to mobilize the community to improve health and well-being. The KHC works collaboratively to improve access to high quality care and drive cost-efficient solutions, enhancing the economic competitiveness of the region.


The KHC works to solve complex health problems facing our local community by engaging multiple healthcare stakeholders. We believe a multi-sector approach provides the best opportunity for innovative, workable solutions to improve healthcare quality, cost, and experience. Our collaborative is particularly useful in solving problems where multiple healthcare sectors can accomplish more together than alone.


The Kentuckiana Health Collaborative is deeply committed to healthcare transparency, measurement, and transformation through education, networking, and collaboration.

  • HEALTHCARE QUALITY MEASUREMENT & TRANSPARENCY: The KHC measures and reports on the quality and value of Kentucky and Southern Indiana healthcare, convenes key organizations to develop Kentucky’s Core Healthcare Measures set, and publicly reports primary care providers’ quality scores at GoHealthShare.org.
  • COMMUNITY HEALTH IMPROVEMENT: The KHC drives improved population health through initiatives focused on opioid use disorder, mental health, diabetes, etc.
  • EMPLOYER AND HEALTHCARE PURCHASER NETWORK: The KHC brings the employer and purchaser community together to address the major systemic health and healthcare challenges they face through education, tools, and strategies.
  • EVENTS AND NETWORKING: The KHC educates the community through forums, conferences, and employer round tables that bring in international, national, and local healthcare thought leaders on priority healthcare topics.

The KHC was formed early in 2003 and is convened by the UAW/Ford Community Healthcare Initiative. The KHC is a member of the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement and National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions.

A word from our Co-Chair…

“The KHC has been an effective, neutral convener of all community stakeholders, catalyzing meaningful progress toward a joint agenda for healthcare transformation. By successfully achieving strategic alignment among disparate stakeholders and driving consensus around measures of success, the KHC has facilitated forward progress toward the Triple Aim of better care and better health, at lower cost.”
