Innovation Digest – December 2021 Vol. 1

I continue to champion policy and practice that creates meaningful change for individuals to sustain and regain health. Recent reports again show us that we need to double down on investing in mental health – particularly for youth. Part of the solution is listening to individuals about their needs and goals, and to understand the range of solutions that are (or should be) available. As I look forward to a new year, I’m grateful for the clients, partners and colleagues that see the same opportunity to improve how we measure and pay for value from the perspective of the patient, and when relevant, their family and caregiver. I can’t wait to get to work. Happy Holidays to all and best wishes for a healthy 2022!
