The Health System Transformation Forum delivered extensive infomation to attendees. Nearly 55 attendees heard about why transformation is taking place as well as potential changes to the county's delivery of health care services (i.e., creation of Coordinated Care Organizations in the metro area). Presenters included Sean Kolmer from the Governor's Office, and Joanne Fuller and Vanetta Abdellatif from the county. Attendees also had an opportunity to ask complex questions to the presenters.

The materials that were presented during the forum are available below. A second forum is also planned later this year as state measures are implemented.

Special thanks to the forum presenters as well as CIC members Steven Joiner and Tonya Krake who helped facilitate the event.
