In 2022, the legislature passed Act 167 (of 2022) which called for healthcare delivery reform in the state of Vermont. A central part of this legislation is developing community- and data- informed options to transform Vermont’s healthcare system that improve access, affordability, quality, and sustainability.

Based on input from last fall’s community meetings and robust data analysis, it is time for a second round of community meetings held in person across the state to discuss the findings and options for health system transformation. More information about the project and work to date can be found here.

In-person Healthcare Community Meetings begin in July
