Who We Are

The Office of Health Care Transformation (OHCT) is a key point-of-contact for Affordable Care Act (ACA) related initiatives at IDPH including Health Benefit Exchange, Accountable Care Organizations, Patient-Centered Medical Home/Health Homes, prevention and chronic care management initiatives, community utility and care coordination.

The OHCT monitors federal health care issues and disseminates the key information, opportunities, and impacts to the public and other partners- internal and external to IDPH. The Check-Up is a health reform newsletter that is a key avenue to distribute this information.

The OHCT presents to and offers technical assistance to a variety of stakeholders, including Local Public Health Agencies and other community organizations, on the initiatives of the OHCT and to prepare them for ACA implementation.

The OHCT also coordinates the Prevention and Chronic Care Management/Medical Home Advisory Council. Click on the “Advisory Council” link to the left for more information.
