In 2012, the California Health and Human Services (CHHS) Agency convened the Let’s Get Healthy California Task Force to develop a 10-year plan for improving the health and wellbeing of California. The Task Force brought together a diverse group of leaders from across the state – including representation from state and local government, health systems and insurers, philanthropic organizations, academia, community organizations, and a range of other multisector partners – to develop a shared vision for what it would look like to be the healthiest state in the nation.
With the Triple Aim (better health, better care, and lower costs) as a foundation, and informed by extensive and wide-ranging feedback, the Task Force produced the LGHC Task Force Report and overarching framework for measuring progress in improving the health of California.
The Task Force officially concluded after publishing the LGHC Task Force Report and initial framework in December 2012. However, the representatives have remained active partners in implementing efforts to advance the shared vision.
